PAGEANT

PAGEANT

This video was made as part of the Ace Hotel/Printed Matter residency program. I was invited to spend the night in the Ace Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA, from check in to check out. I was thinking a lot about the Ace Hotel's history as a former YMCA and the homoerotic decadence and pageantry of the early 20th century group athletics that would have happened in that space.
