This feature, fresh off the press from the 55th Venice Biennale, is a gem for any lover of international art. The Biennale is the 'Art World's Olympics.' The images and information were sent directly to me just yesterday by FITZ & CO, who represent Tavares Strachan; immediately I had to share! The pavilion looks breathtakingly fascinating, the quality is of such strong international standard, that I'm most certain it will captivate attendees, and positively promote the 700 islands & cays that make up, The Bahamas. This is the island nation's 40th year of independence, and I believe the showing at the Biennale is a signal foretelling of even greater years ahead. Earlier this month Tavares was featured on Traveller's Bazaar, including a prelude to his Venice showing. Now see here FIRST, images of The Bahamas Pavilion.
When you think Park Hyatt, what comes to mind? Do you think pristine desert island beaches with silhouettes of futuristic skylines in the distant, interiors so marvelous any connoisseur of fine living would approve, and services so appealing you never want to leave? If this happens to cross your mind, you more than lively have stayed at the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas located on Saadiyat island, Abu Dhabi. It is the definitive 'Park Hyatt Experience.' I had the pleasure of staying for three nights in this relatively new property, and have a lot to say about my experience.
After my two night stay in Monaco, I headed westward along the Mediterranean coastal roads of the Cote d'Azure bound for Saint-Tropez via an 'adventurous' drive(see here what I mean). I was excited to see this French Riviera Provençal town as it is known throughout the world for its famed mega-yacht marina, chic luxury culture, and constant celebrity sightings. I was even more excited because I was staying at Hôtel Benkiraï Saint-Tropez; a lovely Provençal style boutique hotel operated by the award winning Charm & More Hotels and Resorts Group.
Bahamian Modern Master of the Arts: Tavares Strachan showcases at the 55th International Venice Biennale!
When I got news that the Bahamas was showcasing at the Venice Biennale, I almost did a backflip, which sadly I cannot actually do, needless to say...I was very excited. Being a Bahamian myself, the news made me more than proud, and curious as to what exactly we would be showcasing to the world. To put in laymen terms, this art exhibition held every other year is regarded in the design world as an equivalent to perhaps the Oscars or Grammys, minus actual awards being handed out, but equal to their high-calibre status.
Continuing on my five night grand tour of Paris, the "City of Light," I checked out of L'Hotel du Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe (linked review), and headed to its sister hotel, Les Jardins du Marais. I was excited and curious to see what the next hotel had to offer, as I had just spent two amazing nights in the 8th Arrondissement. Concierge notified me the neighborhood of 'Le Marais,' was equivalent to Lower Manhattan's...
