March 18th, 2019 About Arthouse

To celebrate its debut as a new destination for art and community in the Upper West Side, Arthouse Hotel welcomes its inaugural art exhibit NewYorkHer, a multimedia and augmented reality art project created by French contemporary artist, Louisa Lama-Aknin. Ten portraits of Louisa L.’s subjects, the “NewYorkHers” (a subtle pun on “New Yorkers”) are now on display in the Arthouse Hotel salon until March 31st.


With a female presence consistently in Louisa L.’s body of abstract work, NewYorkHer celebrates the stories of ten individual immigrant women who call New York City home. Each of her subjects is painted in Louisa’s signature abstract style, but behind each portrait is an augmented reality experience. Viewers can scan the painting with the free Artivive app, unlocking each extraordinary woman’s story inside the canvas with a video. The exhibition artfully communicates the impact these women have in their neighborhoods, their communities, and the city at large.


“We are delighted to host the NewYorkHer exhibition here at the Arthouse Hotel, and extremely grateful to Louisa L. for sharing her vision with our guests and the Upper West Side community,” says Arthouse General Manager, Connie Wang. “It’s a wonderful reminder that everyone has a story to tell, and the stories of these incredible women help build the culture of diversity and leadership that makes New York City so unique and great.”
