"To Darkness" in the sculpture garden of
the Nogushi Museum
From the cultural
capital to the political capital: along with the only Spy
Museum in the world, Washington also has a number of interesting
exhibitions to offer. In Bellini,
the National Gallery revives the golden age of Venetian painting. At the Hirshhorn
Museum, a round, cool modernist building, Heaven and Earth
presents works by Anselm
Kiefer – from his early investigations into German history to his
current cosmological works.
Wegman, "Dusted", from "Elephant, Bad Dog & Dusted", 1988,
Whoever finds Kiefer’s
paintings too heavy can go for a stroll in the large sculpture garden
among works by Rodin and Calder.
Or find pleasure in William Wegman’s
cheerful Weimaraners at the Smithsonian
American Art Museum.
Show" at the Warhol Museum:

the artist and Matthew Marks Gallery,New York
stopover in Pittsburgh at the Warhol
Museum will show you how cool the downtown New York scene of the 70s
still is. Between High Art and Punk Rock, the scene beyond Studio
54 comes to life once more. The
Mattress Factory, also located on the historical North Side,
concentrates entirely on room-sized installations. Particularly
spectacular is Yayoi
Kusama’s Infinity Dots Mirrored Room – a psychedelic
allover made of dots and mirrors.

Welcome to the
Sunshine State of Florida! In Miami, everything appears larger than life:
the ocean shines especially bright blue, palatial Art Deco hotels are
painted in candy colors. And ever since the Art
Basel Miami Beach established itself in the city, art booms here, too.
Wynwood and the adjacent Design District are the new hotspots beyond the
boardwalks. Where empty warehouses used to dominate the streets, there are
now young galleries, showrooms of established designers, stylish shops,
palms and pastel colors,
Oliver Koerner von Gustorf
epicenter of the Design District is the Moore Building, with its columned
inner courtyard. On the second floor, The
Moore Space shows contemporary art. On the former parking lot next to
the building, the Swiss landscape architect Enzo
Enea designed a very chic Garden Lounge. Guests can relax beneath a
sunroof among bamboo and water lilies. In Wynwood, the Rubell
Family Collection and The
Margulies Collection elucidate which artists influential collectors
are excited by.
in style: the Venetian Pool in Miami
if you want to cool off in style afterwards, we recommend the Venetian
Pool, in which Tarzan Johnny
Weissmuller used to love to swim. Behind a cast-iron door is a 1922
water landscape with waterfalls and grottoes and surrounded by palms and
loggias. In hot muggy Miami, the cool spring water of the pool provides a
perfect refreshment. And whoever needs even more glamour can admire the
villas of the rich and famous on a Millionaire’s Row Sightseeing Tour on
the Island Queen.
High-class voyeurism par excellence: the mix of styles of the expensive
refuges provide drastic evidence for the fact that in Florida, money and
good taste do not necessarily go hand in hand.
