Art Destinations

Art is a reflection of history: a time, place, society, movement, culture and so much more. We can’t live without it, in any of its forms (paintings, music, literature, culinary, architecture), and today we look at fine art destinations

International


Paris: With over 1,000 art galleries spread across the city, this place is a dream, from the  iconic art museums like The Louvre  or Musée d’Orsay, Galerie Daniel Templon to newer La Maison Rouge and Modus Art Gallery


London: The National Gallery, Tate Modern, British Museum, Saatchi Gallery, V&A, or the street art mecca Shoreditch are all a delight. London is also Banksy’s favorite canvas and home to more than 1000 galleries


Vienna: Austria’s capital, which nurtured the talents of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Mahler, plus local boys Schubert and Strauss. It’s also the site of the Vienna Secession, a revolutionary art movement founded in 1897 by luminaries like Gustav Klimt. Visitors today can see the fruits of all that creativity in the city’s 100-odd museums—including the Belvedere and the Museum Moderner Kunst—and hear it at legendary opera houses such as the Staatsoper and Theater an der Wien.


Florence: For Renaissance art, there’s no better destination than Florence. Home to some of Michelangelo’s best-known works.  Galleria dell’Accademia and the landmark Galleria degli Uffizi are stunning, and contemporary art fans can get their fix at Florence’s Centro di Cultura Contemporanea Strozzina.


Barcelona: Visit the Museu Picasso, home to one of the biggest collections of Picasso works in the world, and the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, or contemporary galleries like Artevistas. It might be more architecture than art, but a trip to Barcelona wouldn’t be complete with ogling the awe-inspiring works of Gaudi – head to Sagrada Família and Parc Güell for some of the most stunning examples.


Berlin:  Home to one of the world’s most varied arts scene with long-standing institutions like the Alte Nationalgalerie and Gemäldegalerie, and the more recently established Neue Nationalgalerie with its collection of modern 20th-century art. Wander through Friedrichshain for alternative art spaces like East Side Gallery, a 1.3 km section of the Berlin Wall today displaying the works of over 100 international artists.


Tokyo:  Roppongi – home to the Mori Art Museum, National Art Center and smaller spaces like Ota Fine Arts. Over in Taito, the prestigiousSCAI The Bathhouse.


Mexico City: The City has hosted its own contemporary art fair, Material Art Fair, while contemporary galleries like House of Gaga and Kurimanzutto are making waves on the international art scene. Stop by the Palacio Nacional to see Diego Rivera’s awe-inspiring mural El mundo de hoy y de mañana and the beautiful La Casa Azul for works by fellow Mexican luminary Frida Kahlo.
