Before I start telling you about the contemporary art bonanza that is Art Basel week here in Hong Kong (I shouldn’t really call it Art Basel week but it seems everything is focussed around and pre-the event)…it’s time to show you my previous 7 days in Dubai in pictures (excluding the Sharjah Biennial 12, which will follow in another post). From “The Beach” marina (yes the beach is called “The Beach”), shoreline wanders, camel watching, killer sunshine, obligatory hot dog legs, paleo breakfast at The Cycle Bistro post-spin class, juice juice juice, pop-up offices, random eats and treats, Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa, the hidden pork room at Waitroise, 7km 7am international run, skyscrapers to skylines, hazy skies and sandy landscapes…it was one whirlwind adventure meeting old and new friends (thanks JC for having me!). Sunshine is one of the best therapies where being by water takes me somewhere else in my mind. Hello clarity. I think I need to live by water in my next locale. To manaXi, forever CDBTMATS.
