Landmark Hotel Renovated and Ready for Art

Posted: Jan. 28th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse
Moscow's Hotel Ukraina
Blouin Artinfo

This historic Moscow landmark dates back to 1957: However, the building was never renovated before the recent and much-needed beatification. Originally created to rival the sky scrapers built in New York City, this Stalin-era structure used to be a hotel. After the renovations, however, it will house art instead of people.

Hotel Ukraina was built in 1957 as one of Stalin’s Seven Sisters — seven skyscrapers meant to rival those of New York City. ARTINFO’s Vanessa Yurkevich speaks with the hotel’s manager about the iconic building’s storied past, and to find out how a recent overhaul, while updating it for the present, allows it to showcase art and other works from its Soviet past.
