27 Apr, 2019 in Turin

After a few days of touring around Turin (:), I headed out to the nearby mountains, first stop at Rivoli Castle, a large 17th century castle turned contemporary art museum, with wonderful exhibits and the most wonderful scenic views of the area. I adore contemporary art museums and so spent a couple of hours wandering […]

6 Mar, 2017 in Bristol

Quite a few things to see and do in Bristol, and in my short visit there I was able to cover quite a few of those. My favorite was the Clifton Suspension Bridge & Observatory area, and from there I headed south towards the waterline, so see the Underfall Yard and Spike Island, two local attractions […]

25 Jan, 2017 in Lisbon

Lisbon was a very pleasant surprise with an amazing diversity of attractions all over the city and fairly comfy warm weather during my visit in February. On the one day that was gloomy and rainy, I explored a bit of the western side of Lisbon and tried some indoor attractions to see some terrific contemporary […]

stedelijk-museum-amsterdam-netherlands-050

Lots of great museums in Amsterdam, from world-class art museums (Rijksmuseum), local history museum (e.g., Anne Frank, Jewish museum, Canal House museum), to funky beer museums (e.g., Heineken). The Stedelijk Museum falls into the first category, grouped together in the Amsterdam Museum District, this one is meant for modern and contemporary art and design. With all […]

National Museum of Modern Art - Centre Pompidou  Paris (2)

Paris, without doubt, has some of the best museums in the world. The Louvre is perhaps the most well known, but when it comes to more contemporary art the National Museum of Modern Art at the Centre Pompidou is as good as it gets. Set in one of the most peculiar structures ever built in […]

Art Basel Hong Kong 2014-024

Hong Kong has a number of large art events year around. The largest of those are the Hong Kong International Art Fair (see my visits in 2009 and 2011) and then there’s Art Basel. For some unexplained reason I managed to skip the previous Basels in town, but somehow managed to find the time to […]

16 Feb, 2014 in Shenzhen
He Xiangning Art Museum Shenzhen (10)

Shenzhen is trying hard to push for more art with dedicated art zones throughout the city. OCT Loft Contemporary Art Terminal is one fine example. But that’s relatively new, prior to that, not too far away also in the Overseas Chinese Town area  is the He Xiangning Art Museum. I didn’t expect much, so I […]

OCT Loft Art Terminal Shenzhen (5)

Shenzhen has a growing art scene and across the city the government is designating areas for galleries and artists. As an example, the Overseas Chinese Town has the Loft Art Terminal, a relatively new area that’s really taking off and becoming a small 798 (Beijing) or M50 (Shanghai). It’s a schick little area with lots […]

The Israel Museum in Jerusalem is my home museum. Located only ~15 minutes walk from my parents’ house in Rehavia, down Ramban street and across the Monastery valley, it has always been part of the very familiar view I’ve come across many times while walking my dog or wondering around the neighborhood. Perhaps since it […]
