Art worth travelling for

Travelling makes you learn and appreciate art in all its forms. While there are cities that are works of art themselves, we always pay attention to the calendars of our favourite museums before planning our trips. Nowadays, there are three exhibitions that we’d love to visit: Henri Matisse: the Cut-outs This exhibition showcases more than 100 pieces created by Matisse between 1936 and 1954. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the last years of his career, when he started “drawing with scissors”. Tate Modern, London 17 April – 7 September 2014 Pop Art Myths Legendary images that looks into the sources of international Pop Art: its myths, irony and innovative perceptions. This exhibition features Warhol, Rauschenberg, Wesselmann, Lichtenstein, Hockney, Hamilton and Equipo Crónica among others. Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid 10 June – 14 Septembre 2014 Irving Penn, Resonance Overview of Irving Penn’s work, mixing both unknown and iconic images. Ethnographic photographs and portraits of celebrities, questioning the meaning of time, life and its fragility. Palazzo Grassi, Venice Until 31 December 2014 Image via AnnaHaro.
