citizenM loves art!
We aim to create living rooms beyond any art lover’s wildest dreams, where you still feel comfortable enough to kick off your shoes and take a nap. Unlike a museum or art gallery, the artwork we feature in our hotels is meant to inspire you, yet make you feel included or at home. Aspirational, yet still accessible. In every hotel we like to mix art that you recognise with art that keeps you guessing—the kind that stops you in your tracks. We like art that makes you think, without being intimidating. The main focus of the collection is Conceptual Art: art that stands for something, and conveys a certain philosophy.
The art in our hotels are by international young and upcoming talents and established artists whose work has been exhibited all around the globe. Among others you will find artworks by: Andy Warhol, Gavin Turk, Julian Opie, Mario Testino, Jen Liu, Elizabeth Peyton, Esiri Erheriene-Essi, Rafaël Rozendaal, Thomas Raat, Mark Titchner, Hans Op De Beeck, Daniel van Straalen, Anouk Kruithof.
Art on the façade
citizenM believes public art should be a platform for young, local artists to create work for everyone to enjoy. Something that stands out in a busy, urban street. So from the very first citizenM, we have always worked with local artists to create hotel façade installations that excite, inspire, and stimulate. It gives each of our hotels that unique, recognisable face.

Art pieces exhibited in the hotel
Are you an art lover and curious to know more about the artists and artworks, please check out our art leaflet, available at the hotel and available for you to take home (ask one of our ambassadors at the check-in desk).
The artworks exhibited at the hotel are unique pieces or in the case of a photograph, signed and numbered. Therefore it is not possible to reproduce these artworks. Feel free to ask us information via art@citizenM.com.
Artworks hanging in the rooms
These artworks are from international artists who are at the beginning stage of their career, curated especially for citizenM by The Public House of Art – a gallery based in Amsterdam. The photographs are in edition of 99 and also available for purchase at the hotel or via www.collectionM.com.
Are you an artist and do you like to collaborate with citizenM?
The artworks in the lobby of the hotel are not owned by citizenM hotels but are on loan from a private art collection. The pieces are carefully selected by the curator of this collection, mainly bought at international galleries. For this reason we can not receive portfolio’s. Please contact art@citizenM.com if you have any questions.
