Jen Liu was commissioned to create a permanent work for the facade of the new citizenM Times Square Boutique Hotel in New York, which opened to the public on April 11th. The work, titled COME ONE COME ALL, is "a tribute to the lost city underneath the shiny new lights, the seedy polis no one remembers. It is a play on a 1970 porn poster, for a film with the same name, which was also known as Six Angels For Satan (a wise marketing move to appeal to different fetishes, many old porns had more than one name). It replaces all the people of the original poster – in various states of sexual pre-, during-, and post-play – with sleepy people", according to Liu. Another of her works can be found in the cafe of the hotel.
