It’s summertime and after another busy period, we’ve earned a well-deserved break. With this in mind, we caught up with some gallerists to see where they are going on holiday this year.

“This summer I will be traveling for one week to Lofoten in Norway: for a wedding and also to visit the Kaviar Factory, which will be showing Ai Weiwei,” said Hjellegjerde, adding that she will also be visiting an 18th-century castle just outside Berlin, where she’s currently planning a show. “As it’s my 50th birthday this year I am celebrating with my husband and our two sons with a trip to the Six Senses in the Maldives at the end of August.”

“After an intense and successful few months with the opening of our new gallery in Los Angeles, a week break in Wales with my son, cycling from Holyhead down to Cardiff is long overdue,” said Le Gaillard. “I am very much looking forward to downtime with friends and family in our favorite spot in France, Le Cap Ferret.”

Nazarian is traveling for work, family, and leisure this summer. “Israel is my second home, so I visited the CCA Tel Aviv, of which I am a board member. In Jerusalem, the new campus for the Bezalel, the most prominent art and design school was mind-blowingly beautiful.” The next stop was Ibiza, then finally, Barcelona. “The Gaudí architecture was mesmerizing. Especially the almost-finished renovation of the magical La Sagrada Familia,” she said.
