The River View from Riverview

Brisbane Riverview Hotel on the corner of Kingsford Smith Drive and Hunt Street, Hamilton has collaborated with TW Fine Art and recruited Californian artist Elsie Lee to help bring Brisbane into the cultural limelight in a way never seen before!

The state of the art project will transform the exterior of the hotel for two nights, into a beacon of light, illuminating the facade with a moving artwork sure to delight and mesmerise. The instillation delivers bright, oscillating, stylized shapes dancing across the surfaces, emerging and disappearing in explosions of colour and form. The event runs for two nights on Friday 5 December and Saturday 6 December.

You will also want to take a look at the Riverview's interior style which has a unique and eclectic mix of sculptures, prints and furnishings curated by Suzanne Geiss of Soho New York. The collection features work by the likes of Jessica Craig-Martin and Riley Payne and presents a multi-faceted grouping of pop-post inspired artworks that reference imagery from contemporary culture.

In addition to the attractions of its façade and interior, the Hotel offers unmatched views from the banks of the Brisbane River and can be reached easily from many of the cities most popular areas such as James Street, New Farm Park and Eat Street Markets.
