Rocco Forte's Brown's Hotel celebrates Modern British Sculpture
London, January 2011 – From 22 January until 7 April 2011, Rocco Forte’s Brown’s Hotel is partnering with The Royal Academy of Arts to celebrate the best of modern British sculpture.
The first of its kind in the UK in more than 30 years and showcasing over 120 significant works by prominent British artists such as Jacob Epstein, Anthony Caro, Henry Moore and Damian Hirst, this major exhibition gives visitors the chance to discover the art form’s unique history and influence on the wider world. A series of themed galleries will explore the development of British sculpture over time as well as highlighting the influence of non-Western techniques on the development of the movement in Britain through Native American, Indian and African pieces on loan.
As The Royal Academy of Arts’ official hotel partner, Brown’s Hotel makes for the perfect base from which to explore one of this year’s most anticipated cultural events. Located just moments away, the hotel has put together a dedicated ‘Modern British Sculpture Experience‘for art lovers, which includes:
• One night accommodation with English Breakfast
• Open/Fast-Track tickets to ‘Modern British Sculpture’
• Welcome amenity and official exhibition guide in room upon arrival
• Set two course lunch or pre-theater supper (5:30pm - 7:00 pm) served at HIX Mayfair
The Modern British Sculpture Experience starts from £299 per night in Classic Queen Room, for single occupancy and from £389 per night in Classic King Room for double occupancy, excluding VAT and is available on Friday through to Monday from 22 January until 7 April 2011.
Home to its own extensive collection of art by some of the UK’s most renowned modern artists such as Tracey Emin, Rankin, Bridget Riley, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, HIX Mayfair Restaurant at Brown’s Hotel has also created a ‘Modern British Sculpture Dining Experience’ which includes a set two course lunch or pre-theatre supper, open/fast-track tickets and the official exhibition guide at the price of £ 40 per person.
