Paul Carter Hotel


  • 17 August — 25 September 2016 *on now

For Paul Carter’s largest solo show to date, MUNICIPAL is a commissioned installation which develops Carter's ongoing interest in the unifying concept that every building designed for public use is a kind of hotel; the artist’s studio, civic centres, government buildings, our homes, galleries, museums, institutional structures and shopping centres. These are all constructed spaces for human exchange, employment and shelter, in which we simultaneously exist as both guest and worker.

Working with the notion that all architectures are transitory constructs, acting as anonymous, functional service providers within our daily lives, MUNICIPAL investigates the role and function of civic structures: social club, town hall, courtroom, social services, public convenience, hotel, sauna, social housing and government architectures.

Questioning these physical civic structures, their internal workings and ideologies, Carter explores municipal architecture’s (dys)functionality, (in)convenience, limitations and social intimacy.
