If you happen to stay at one of Andre Balazs’s Standard Hotels, you may notice that the televisions aren’t exactly playing standard programming. This year’s StandART Video Series, launching at the Top of The Standard Hotel, New York yesterday evening, features video art that will play across the country in the rooms of Balazs’s lush chain. The in-room video art exhibition, curated by Creative Time, includes work by Andrew Cross, Allison Schulnik, Naomi Fisher, Terence Koh, Estefanía Peñafiel Loaiza, Kalup Linzy and Slater Bradley.
