&Leisure is a project by the artist group formed by Christopher K. Ho and Troy Richards.

'& Leisure, 2007, is a compilation of luxury itineraries for artists, sponsored by a fictitious travel consultancy. The itineraries, which are priced between 3,000 and 5.5 million, are individually tapered towards the respective artist's work (thus Rikrit Tiravanija goes on a gastronomic tour and Andrea Fraser on a total body spa vacation). The project is meant to be wry - an example of and comment on late conceptual art, in which the culture and leisure industries merge - as well as deadly serious: we sincerely hope that some quirky philanthropist will start a foundation that awards much needed dream vacations to overworked artists.' - from artist's statement.
