Le Méridien, Tate launch art-focused film series

Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts has partnered with Tate on the Unlock Art series of eight short films created to make visual art more accessible to a wider audience.

The films will be released monthly and presented by a high-profile entertainment personality. Frank Skinner presented the first film in the series, “Unlock Art: Bringing Performance Art to Life.” Future film topics will include pop art, women in art and surrealism.

“We are delighted to grow our long-term partnership with Tate with this exciting initiative, which we hope will unlock the world of contemporary art to more people,” said Brian Povinelli, global brand leader, Le Méridien and Westin. “Le Méridien is a forward-looking, design-led lifestyle brand, and we aim to provide a new perspective to our guests through a curated approach to culture. The Unlock Art film series will help make art more accessible to the culturally curious in a warm, informal way with an occasional dash of humor.”
