Artistic Licence: QT Sydney unveils latest collaboration with MCA

With its enviable collection of modern art and longstanding relationship with the Museum of Contemporary Art, QT Sydney has long reigned supreme as a stylish hub for Sydney's creative scene. The Design Hotels™ member hotel's crown is showing no sign of slipping with its latest MCA collaboration, supporting Turner-Prize winner Grayson Perry's upcoming exhibition My Pretty Little Art Career with a tailor-made package, destined to bring out the inner-artiste in every single guest. www.designhotels.com/qt-sydney



My Pretty Little Art Career
Leading British artist, Grayson Perry is one of the most influential and original figures of today's contemporary art scene. The self-proclaimed "transvestite potter" is renowned for his witty ceramics, sculptures, drawings, prints, and large-scale tapestries which reflect upon contemporary society, politics, and private life – albeit with a tongue firmly in cheek. Presented as part of the Sydney International Art Series at the MCA, Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career is the first major study of Perry's works in the Southern Hemisphere.

To celebrate Perry's first foray on Australian soil, QT Sydney has created the Grayson Perry Package, which includes two tickets to the exhibition and overnight accommodation in a luxurious QT Deluxe King Room. Inspired by the creative flair of the show, there is also a "design your own stay" element to the package whereby guests can select their own breakfast, dinner and spaQ preferences.



About QT Sydney
The 200-room hotel is set within two of the city's most iconic buildings – the historic Gowings Department Store and heritage-listed State Theatre. While the facades have been restored to their former glory, inside is a stunning mix of original features, curated art installations, eclectic artefacts and quirky design pieces inspired by the retail and theatre history of the buildings. Dramatic LED art walls are framed by restored art deco and baroque details, next to show-stopping spotlights and ornate gilt display cases throughout the hotel.  

Rates from 320 AUD, available from Dec. 10, 2015—Jan. 26, 2016
