Curagenda re-envisions the way art, travel and contemporary cultures meet in a bespoke experience. Our curated trips offers unique travel opportunities to experience art, culture and cities through the eyes of insiders and cultural luminaries at major international art events. Founded by contemporary art curator Helen Homan Wu, the company’s organized tours are designed for individuals or small groups of like-minded people, or specially curated private trips, designed to benefit clients at different levels of art-world knowledge.
“By creating an elegant, insightful, yet eclectic program, we reveal the cities’ hidden gems, local talents, multimedia engagements, but ultimately a wildly different sensory-filled private travel experience. Our exclusive and site-specific events offers opportunities to share stories and conversations with artists, curators, designers, architects, writers, filmmakers, collectors, entrepreneurs, and with each other…that will be memorable for many years to come.” – Helen Homan Wu, founder Curagenda
Destinations and events that have key relevance on the international art map are handpicked by Curagenda and its Circle of Friends who are industry insiders. Curated travels are inspired by artistic movements, inspirational exhibitions and installations, visionaries and events that are influencing today’s contemporary culture on a regional and global scale. Curagenda trips are designed for guests to see from an insider’s point of view, as if peering through notebooks and travelogues of artists and luminaries. These key moments allow guest travelers to gain invaluable insight into the international art eco-system infused with a nourishing travel experience.
