Early history

Prior to its 2013 reopening, the Quin was originally the Buckingham Hotel, a Beaux-Arts style building designed by American architect, Emery Roth, which opened in 1929.[1]

2013 Opening

The Quin opened on November 11, 2013 with an architectural redesign by New York, New York based firm Perkins Eastman. It has 208 guestrooms including 28 suites.

Famous Residents

Former guests include Georgia O’Keeffe, Ignacy Jan Paderewski,[2] and Marc Chagall.[3]

Quin Arts

The Quin Arts program presents an ongoing series of events, exhibitions, salons, lectures, film premieres, book debuts, musical performances and artist receptions in Manhattan.[4]

Some highlights of the program include a 15-foot abstract video art wall and a permanent collection featuring artists from around the world, including Blek le Rat, Patrick Graham, Nick Walker (artist), and Eric Zener.[5]

The Quin Arts Program also features a contemporary artist-in-residence program under the direction of curator DK Johnston. Under the program, artists stay and work at the hotel, enabling guests to interact with them and gain insight that goes beyond what a visit to museum or gallery can impart. The program has mostly included street artists who have drawn and painted on hotel doors, stairwells, and other areas, in addition to exhibiting work in the lobby. Blek le Rat, who was in residence in 2014, was mistakenly nearly arrested after police saw him stenciling on a hotel door.[6] The summer 2016 artist in residence was Berlin-based street artist Tavar Zawacki aka Above (artist).[7] In September 2016, the Quin commissioned Chaz Barrisson, half of the street art duo London Police, to paint two of his signature grinning characters on the wall by the service doors of the hotel. The London Police residency included a gallery show of their graphic, black-and-white work, done on canvas and paper. Johnston reports that guests have started to plan trips around artists’ residencies.[8]

In June 2014, the Quin hotel was shortlisted for the “Most Creative Collaboration” Award at LE Miami travel trade show for its arts program.[9]

In November 2016, the Quin commissioned 14 acclaimed artists to create custom pieces for a group salon in partnership with D'Angelico Guitars. Artists included Above (Tavar Zawacki), Alex Yanes, ASVP, Blek le Rat, Eric Zener, Joanne CORNO, Amanda Marie, Mindy Linkous, Nick Walker, Pure Evil, Robert Malmberg, SP38, The London Police, and Wulf Treu.[10]

Robert Malmberg contributed to the program again in February 2017 with a second solo Quin Arts exhibition entitled, Light Waves. Light Waves highlights two diverse expressions of Malmberg’s work and features a color saturated Neon Landscapes series, along with a black and white presentation of oversized contact sheets exploring Manhattan.[11] Malmberg is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker from Louisville, Kentucky.[12] A pioneer in the revival of wet collodion photography,[13] Malmberg capitalizes on wet-plate, slow exposure techniques to produce ultra-detailed and hauntingly nostalgic images. The meticulous process riffs off the imperfection and beauty of 19th century portrait photography.[14] In August 2014, Malmberg was commissioned by the New York Historical Society Museum & Library to reimagine Antebellum era photography with "Camp History: Civil War Photography," a workshop for NYC youth.[15] His inaugural exhibition at the Quin, INcognito, debuted March 5, 2015.[16]

Dutch photographer Anne Barlinckhoff’s solo exhibition Strength Africa debuted at the Quin in the spring of 2017 and featured works captured during her travels through West Africa.[17] Barlinckhoff’s inspiration was driven “by love, life and loss and all those moments in between.”[18] Portraits embodied the strength and vulnerability of her female subjects amid Africa’s vibrant landscape.[19]

In June 2017, American photojournalist Hilary Swift presented her first solo exhibition Time In-Between—a collection of intimate and surprising portraits documenting everyday life in New York City.[20] Swift covers politics, social issues, and breaking news, and is a frequent contributor to The New York Times.[21]

The Quin then showcased two exhibitions by Danish photographer Søren Solkær. SURFACE—the first collection of its kind to be exhibited within a luxury suite—captured some of the world’s most famous street artists at work over a three-year journey around the globe and was installed in the Quin Penthouse. These portraits were taken from his fine art photography book of the same name, first published in 2015. A reissue featuring new photography is slated for early 2018.[22] HEART BEAT CITY consisted of select photographs from SURFACE and new New York-centric images commissioned for the Quin. It debuted in the hotel's lobby August 17, 2017.[23]
