My atelier is a laboratory for reviving.

Art Scenes of Note
When one thinks of the most “important” goings-on in the art world taking place internationally throughout the year, the mind naturally turns to such prominent and well-publicized events as:
- Venice Art Biennale, the oldest continuous contemporary visual art exhibition, and the one upon which others in the world have been modeled.
- Art Basel, indubitably the world’s biggest contemporary art fair, held variously in Basel, Switzerland; Miami Beach, Florida; and Hong Kong, China.
- Frieze Art Fair, which exhibits contemporary art in London, New York, and Los Angeles.
- The Armory Show, considered one of the leading cultural destination for discovering and collecting the world’s most important 20th and 21st-century art.
