30 Sept - 6 October
On the occasion of Christo wrapping the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, we are organizing a trip to Paris around this unique and very special event. It is always a joy to be in Paris, but this moment in time will be immortalized by what is most likely the last monumental project Christo will take on. In addition to celebrating Christo, we will get to enjoy many other newly opened art-sites in Paris, including the $170m Fondation Pinault and the extraordinary Fondation Giacometti. Our group will enjoy VIP tours of museums and incredible private collections in Paris and the Île-de-France. We will visit La Fondation Agnès B, the Musée de La Poste 34, the Picasso Museum, and the burgeoning arts scene in Romaineville. We will see significant modernist architecture, enjoy fabulous dinners and tastings at hidden wineries within the city, get early-access to soon-to-be-opened venues, and experience it all while staying at the luxurious Hôtel Plaza Athénée. This will be a special and exciting time to visit Paris - during Fashion Week no less! - with museums and galleries putting on their best for those who come to support Christo! This tour will be lead by French author and curator Marc Pottier, as well as Laura Worth of Art & Travel. We will also be joined by many esteemed colleagues and art world friends. Places are limited. This tour will end in time to visit Frieze London.
