‘WONDERWHEEL’ at SIXTY

  • Share

Art and travel have a few things in common, but one stands out the most: they both attempt to challenge the mind by opening us up to new things. And so bringing them together seems a perfect marriage. As is the case with WONDERWHEEL, an exhibition at Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel in partnership with Italian nonprofit arts organization Depart Foundation.

The site-specific exhibition, hand-selected by curatorial and editorial platform CURA and opening December 3, features videos, paintings, sculptures, and installation works by international artists, each exploring that oft-mined treasure trove known as childhood. From neo-pop to engaging visual texts, the artists use intentional naiveté to communicate the complexity of adulthood.

If you’re in town or staying at Nautilus, please stop by.
