LONDON – 19 August 2020 – Belmond Cadogan Hotel reveals a new collaboration with British artist, Nancy Cadogan, featuring an installation of the artist’s collection and limited edition face masks commissioned for guests of the hotel. Nancy will also host a ‘salon’ evening, sharing insights into her upcoming exhibition, Gusto, launching in Rome later in the year.
Five of the artist’s paintings will be on display within the hotel until the end of the year. The limited edition facemasks, available exclusively for guests staying at the hotel,  feature designs from Cadogan’s breakout 2019 show, Mind Zero
With a curated collection of over 400 pieces of contemporary art, Belmond Cadogan Hotel has a rich heritage in celebrating arts and culture; having played host to artists and creatives throughout history. The collaboration with Nancy Cadogan connects with the present moment, expressed through the artist’s observational style.
Commenting on the collaboration Nancy Cadogan said, “As galleries, museums and hotels gradually begin to reopen, it was important for me to forge a connection between art and the current state of the world.  Designing the face masks for Belmond Cadogan Hotel was a way to join the global effort in protecting and preventing further cases of coronavirus so that we can all continue to enjoy and interact with these spaces.”
As the world gently returns to travel once more, there is a desire for simple pleasures and a nostalgia for fond memories - Nancy Cadogan’s work perfectly captures the sentimentality of this current mindset. Capturing the joy of thoughtful observation, Nancy’s paintings  encourage mindful contemplation and a careful appreciation of the things we surround ourselves with. They celebrate the beauty in the everyday: a chin resting on a book, mugs of team, scented lilies, splendid foliage and flowering potted plants.
Northamptonshire based Cadogan has been working from her home studio throughout the global lockdown, preparing for her new show Gusto , a new exhibition for the Keats Shelley House in Rome.  She came to global attention in 2019 with two summer exhibitions – Mind Zero and Footnotes.
As part of the collaboration, Cadogan is also working on additional artworks to be exclusively exhibited at the hotel, taking inspiration from the hotel’s history with references to floral and botanical motifs detailed in the interior design.
Xavier Lablaude, General Manager of Belmond Cadogan Hotel, said of the collaboration: “Belmond Cadogan Hotel has long been the place where London’s cultural and social calendars converge; from literary gatherings to curated art collections. The past few months have been such an extraordinary time for all of us. The collaboration with Nancy Cadogan and her exquisite artwork will spark moments of joy for our guests. Her paintings as well as the custom design masks will serve as a great reminder - to appreciate the simplicity of life and instill the sense of normality in all of us.”
