a lice + olivia By Stacey Ben­det’s Spring 2018 Col­lec­tion is in­spired by the Chelsea Ho­tel and the muses that might in­habit it to­day. Ben­det is col­lab­o­rat­ing with sev­eral fe­male artists in­clud­ing Jemima Kirke, Lola Schn­abel and Francesca Di­mat­tio, among oth­ers, to cre­ate a mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the land­mark ho­tel. The pre­sen­ta­tion will take place on Sept. 12, at Sky­light Clark­son (Gallery 3) dur­ing New York Fash­ion Week.

Cre­at­ing art­work speci­ically for the pre­sen­ta­tion, each artist has been as­signed a “room,” where their work will be ex­hib­ited. The gallery will in­te­grate the works of Tal­lu­lah Wil­lis in the dinette, Lucy Spar­row in the kitchen, Susie Lopez in the kitchen, Blair Z in the bed­room, An­gel­ica Hicks in the bath­room, Lola Schn­abel in the liv­ing room, Francesca Di­mat­tio in the foyer and Scout Wil­lis singing in mu­sic room, along­side the alice + olivia Spring 2018 Col­lec­tion.

Sit­u­ated on west 23rd street, The Chelsea Ho­tel once ex­isted as an in­for­mal artists’ com­mu­nity. In the lat­ter half of the 1900s, the 400 room ho­tel housed artists who lived for free, or traded their work for rent. The ho­tel was a des­ti­na­tion for tourists, pay­ing to rent bleak rooms for the op­por­tu­nity to witness the emerg­ing art elite who lived and played there. Rock­stars like Joni Mitchell, Patti Smith and Janis Jo­plin could be found writ­ing and min­gling amongst a crowd of pain­ters, lit­er­ary artists, fash­ion designers, ilm direc­tors and Warhol’s “Fac­tory Girls.”
