Robin Chadha
The unorthodox patron

In this episode Robin Chadha gives us insights in the patronage of citizenM and how they have supported artists by incorporating art in hotels in unique ways, but also how they founded the new Museum of Street Art by working together with the driving forces behind the legendary 5Pointz in New York. He talks about his time in Amsterdam and the qualities of the local art scene.

Chadha takes us on a tour through the 9 straatjes and shows us his favourite stores, places to eat, to shop and other hidden gems.
