Only one week in every ten years do the stars align for the contemporary art world: the Venice Biennale, Art Basel, documenta, and the Münster Sculpture Project occur
simultaneously. We will set off on our own Grand Tour, a seventeenth- and eighteenth century tradition of traveling to the cultural centers of Europe in search of self-refinement and enlightenment. Our revival of the Tour will involve pilgrimages to the decade's four major contemporary art exhibitions in Italy, Switzerland, and Germany.
