The Killer: A front wheel drive motorcycle from Rodsmith

The concept of the patron is well established in the world of art. Charles Saatchi is almost a household name in the UK, but before him we had New Yorker Peggy Guggenheim—who anchored the careers of Pollock and Rothko. Parallels are now edging into the modern custom motorcycle scene, and one of the leading lights is Bobby Haas of the Haas Moto Museum in Dallas. Bobby has built up a collection of 130-plus extraordinary motorcycles, and occasionally commissions them too. Hazan is one of his...

Azulik, an eco-paradise in Tulum, celebrates the four natural elements

The four elements of earth, fire, water and air are reflected in every material, design and spa offering throughout the campus of the Azulik eco resort in Tulum, Mexico.

Stock Market Or Cars? Where To Invest? The Data Might Surprise You

Rarely, if ever, have cars been an “investment” in my life. For myself and countless other gearheads around the world, cars are not a way to make money, they are a perfectly efficient way to lose money. This is not to say classic cars cannot make money in the long run . . . just that 99.99999% of the time, they end up costing you bread, not earning it. If you’re going to invest, the stock market seems more likely. Now, it seems, some people would beg to differ. Cash For Classics According to K...

This breathtaking Tulum art gallery was created by Peggy Guggenheim's great-grandson

Much like the Guggenheim Museums around the world, a new art gallery founded by the great-grandson of Peggy Guggenheim is a true architectural showstopper. Santiago Rumney Guggenheim commissioned designer Jorge Eduardo Neira Sterkel to create IK LAB, a stunning arts gallery that opened late last month in Tulum, Mexico. Topped with a curved timber canopy, the nature-inspired space is located within the eco-friendly Azulik resort. Upon entering, visitors are asked to slip off their shoes and “t...

Venice Architecture: a dream with substance (& BOOK GIVEAWAY!)

In Dream of Venice Architecture, a cadre of architects and architectural writers explore the uncharacteristic elements that make Venice unique in the world. In the int...

Venice- The Floating City

While Florence charms visitors with its art and architecture, Venice engulfs you with its picture postcard streets, buildings and waterways. The Venetian windows decorated with flowers, numerous outdoor cafes along with musicians on the colourful streets and the neatly decked up gondolas rowing beneath the bridges accentuates the charm of this gorgeous city. Devoid of vehicular traffic (you will not even sight a two wheeler unless close to the station or airport), the streets and the smal...

40 Years After Peggy Guggenheim's Death Legal Battles Still Rage Over Her Amazing Collection

The legal briefs have become increasingly acrimonious. The foundation says that it has faithfully carried out Peggy’s wishes, that she never said the collection should remain as she left it, and it describes the descendants’ claims as “distortions,” “pointless,” “ridiculous and outrageous,” and “devoid of good faith.” It also says that a 2013 letter to the foundation from the descendants’ attorney “leaves little room for doubt as to their genuine objectives: they believe they can obtain a financ...

"I Hate Hatred" - My Weapon Against the Atomic Bomb is a Blade of Grass - Tancredi at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice

Tancredi Parmeggiani in Venice, 1955-56. Venezia, Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Istituto di Storia dell'Arte, Fondo Cardazzo (Venice, Italy) Tancredi Parmeggiani was a beautiful, sensitive soul, both inside and out. I could tell by looking at the works of art he created, and by his striking physical appearance, captured in photos from the 1950s. But most of all, I could tell by speaking to his son, Alexander, who looks uncannily like his father.  Alexander Parmeggiani (cent...

Learning Patience Abroad: 5 Tips on Surviving Travel with 30 Female Art History Students

The Road to Montauk -- History in the Making

With a few days left in the States before I go abroad again, my old college friend took me on a road trip through Long Island. We drove from Stony Brook to Montauk, the easternmost point of the island. Our first stop was a quick pullover at the Memory Motel because I had done some research earlier in the week and found out that back in 1975-76, the Rolling Stones had rented out Eothen, Andy Warhol's five-house compound to work on their 13th album, Black and Blue and would sometimes hang out at ...

CultureZohn: Troublemakers

Robert Smithson, Broken Circle, 1971 I'm immediately drawn to any film with the title of Troublemakers and this one does not let go. The film by James Crump does something that is rare for art documentaries: It is very beautiful and dynamic itself in examining work that is challenging. It meets the subject head-on. "Dear Virginia: Many Land sensations and projects already realized. So very positive. I urge you to consider closing of gallery and to consider world wide land operations. Walte...

A year in review – where Heather travelled in 2015

We’re in that lull between the feasting and celebration of Christmas and the fresh starts and new plans of New Year. It’s the quiet time when we can reflect and review the year that’s gone, the time to reminisce and consider what the year brought us: the adventures and challenges, the excitement of visiting new places, the holiday times we enjoyed with loved ones. Here’s a look back to the travels I enjoyed in 2015. January – A cottage stay and fossil hunting in Devon and Dorset The ammoni...
