LUXURY ART TOUR
Curated in partnership with The Saturday Paper and The Monthly, this is not a European holiday but rather an invitation to step into a world of art.
Picasso once said that art exists to wash the dust from our souls, and this is an experience that will do just that. Whether you spent semesters studying Caravaggio or simply enjoy a stroll through contemporary galleries, this is a journey designed for you.
Explore Europe as you never have before. Visit the Venice Biennale, where we meet with Australian representative Angelica Mesiti, dine with the curators and directors of Europe’s finest galleries, and attend Milan Fashion Week.
The specialist host for our journey is Jason Smith, director of the Geelong Art Gallery who previously served as head of Australian art at the Queensland Art Gallery, director of Heide Museum of Modern Art, and assistant curator of the NGV. Jason will lead discussions with artists, curators and designers, as well as providing an insider’s perspective into everything we see and do.
We have curated a range of experiences that can only occur once, including private viewings and dinners with François Quintin, Executive Director of Lafayette Anticipations, and Laurent Le Bon, Director of the Picasso Museum.
From private limousines to the carriages of Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, Michelin-star restaurants to residences such as Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris, everywhere you stay, everything you eat and every mode of transport is of the highest calibre.
