Beatrice Modorati (Zadok Ben-David studio) and Victoria Genzini (Massimo De Carlo gallery, London), the duo behind the art inspired food blog Contemporary Art Kitchen.
Your secret art venue when you seek peace and quiet
When our London life is taking its toll we love to spend afternoons wandering round the Sir John Soane museum in Holborn, it is so quite during the week and it’s a treat to be able to walk around and see all the objects and paintings that this eclectic architect has accumulated through the years. When we are in Italy we always try to go to Villa Panza in Varese and loose ourselves in the amazing sculpture gardens and the James Turrel lit rooms.
The best food experience in an art space
We went for lunch to the Tate Modern restaurant recently and adored it: the view is breath taking and they have one of the best fish and chips in town. Also a great discovery is the Bar Luce at the newly opened Fondazione Prada in Milan: the interior design is by Wes Anderson and they make great cocktails.
A museum gift shop that you never leave empty handed
When we are in Paris we always make sure to stop at the Centre Pompidou to see what is on: they have an amazing gift shop, our houses are full of knick knacks that we bought in our last trip there!
Your museum with a wow-factor
The Guggenheim in Bilbao is definitely one of the most striking museums we have seen in terms of architecture, but we must say one of our favourites is the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg.
Please share with us a special personal memory related to a museum experience
Both our special memories are connected to museum shows that we saw when we had just moved to London as first year university students in 2009, and being so overwhelmed and excited by seeing such a great number of institutions dedicating shows to contemporary art. For Beatrice it was the Anish Kapoor retrospective at the Royal Academy, and for Victoria it was the Pop Life exhibition at Tate Modern.
