Ace Hotel & Swim Club has partnered with No)one. Art House to co-curate a lineup of artists led by Chris Emile for Ace Hotel A!R Program. We are happy to welcome our second Artist is Residence, Qwenga.

Drawing inspiration from the mystifying monolith in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” Qwenga’s current project, “Monolith,” delves into the powerful allure of these towering structures and their capacity to ignite introspection and evolution.

Catch his performance of Monolith on November 2.


No)one. Art House is dedicated to creating opportunities for artistic collaboration, building audiences for the arts and providing learning opportunities. NOAH has collaborated with notable institutions such as the Getty Center, SAINT HERON, Hauser & Wirth and Refinery 29.

Qwenga is an Los Angeles-based multi-hyphenate create who thrives in the intersection of movement, conceptual thinking and innovative visual storytelling.

Ace Hotel A!R Program is the embodiment of our deep conviction that artists deliver us a critical lens through which to understand the world and ourselves. On a quarterly basis, and curated in partnership with creative
collectives and art institutions that inspire us, we invite artists across the globe to turn one of our hotel rooms into their studio for a month. Given time and space to create, the artist’s resultant body of work is then exhibited at Ace and shared with the public.

Since the inception of the Artist In Residence program in 2014, participants have included Antonia Kuo, Rashaad Newsome, Alexander Chee, Jason Polan, Ocean Vuong, Cali Thornhill DeWitt, William Powhida, Jia Tolentino, Christian Joy, Doreen St. Felix, Nick Zinner, Saeed Jones, Elif Batuman, Tyehimba Jess and Kandis Williams.
