Your Art. Our Rooms.Submit
QT Wellington unveils their latest creative collaboration: Gallery 4
QT Wellington’s ‘Your Art. Our Rooms.’ initiative launched earlier this May, throwing down the challenge to the greater artistic community to submit artworks for the bedhead walls for 9 brand new guest rooms.
The hotel’s challenge was incredibly well received, with over 270 entries from local and national artists.
With such a high number of quality submissions, the Capital’s favourite quirky hotel then chose to adorn all 25 rooms on level 4 with bespoke artwork, quite a feat!
Gallery 4 launched on Thursday 1 November 2018 with rooms bookable now.
How it works
Submit your proposed artwork via the entry portal on this site
Our expert judging panel chooses the successful submissions
Produce your artwork and it will be on display in one of our new rooms
..this hotel, QT Wellington, is a solid and direct supporter of artists. The collection in its public areas represents this and its importance and depth of involvement in this country’s art realm. The In-Room Art Project expands this inclusive range and gives opportunities to an even wider field of New Zealand artists to join a staunch collection. As an artist who dodges the official gallery and collector world, its rad to see an open call for such a recognised placement. I am honoured to be involved in this process.
This is a special opportunity for contemporary New Zealand artists across media to contribute to an iconic institution, that has made a distinctive cultural mark in a city known for its innovative approach to art outside the gallery. This hotel is well known for its support of our artists, and I’m hoping diverse artists of excellence, at every stage of career, will respond to this open call.
