EGON SCHIELE AND JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT AT FOUNDATION LOUIS VUITTON, PARIS.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The current exhibition at the Louis Vuitton Foundation (From 3rd October 2018 till 14th January 2019) compares two of the most complex artistic personalities of the twentieth century: Egon Schiele (1890 – 1918) and Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960 – 1988). Despite their profound differences, they both had a common revolutionary vision.  An original exhibition that opposes Basquiat’s underground culture, his skulls, almost demon like characters, his bright colours that alternate with dark shades and Schiele’s knobby bodies in unnatural and deformed positions. The exhibition brings together some 100 works – drawings, gouaches, and paintings – in the pool-level galleries (Gallery 1).

2019, Havana was founded 500 years ago…

2019 is the year to do your incentive in Havana Cuba. It was 500 years ago that the city was founded by the Spanish conquistadores. The city is shaping up for this unique celebration with new hotels right in the colonial quarter. This year in August opens the 5 star Gran Iberostar Packard at the Prado boulevard in Old Havana. Next year it is for new 5 stars Sofitel at the corner of Malecon and Prado. Doesn’t your incentive or event group want to stay there in that year full of surprises for the city.

Contact your partner Cuba for Travel, experienced DMC located in Havana. (www.cubafortravel.com /contact@cubafortravel.com).

Havana is a surprising city where layers of the past come together in the present. You see old Classic American Vintage cars of the 50 ies together with Ladas from the Soviet era right in the streets full of colonial buildings of the 18th and 19th Century. Many have been restored and can be the setting of your event. Many have that flavour of decay and the scars of times that make such a great picture or the background of your incentive party. But in Havana is the joy of life that comes with the mojitos and the salsa music and dancing.

Visit Havana before it changes for ever and becomes one of the many modern cities. Try the uniqueness of this place and celebrate with us the 500 years of this grand old lady.
