Alexandra Gill on bad jokes and hotel art


I'm catching up, Ms. Gill wrote 1,679 words yesterday about The new Four Seasons Resort in Whistler, B.C. Incidentally, she mentioned some art.

Submitted without comment, but entirely out of context:

"Is that upside down or is it art?" Taber asked Laurie Cooper, the resort's public-relations director.
"It was so funny," recalls Cooper, who assured Taber the print was meant to hang that way...

Hotel art, once the mainstay of washed-out reproduced masterpieces and the butt of bad jokes, has recently acquired a bold new lease on life.

Somehow, it strikes me that the idea of not knowing how to hang contemporary art is a bad joke. (ok, so I did comment, sue me!)
