MITICO, Unveils New Season Featuring Daniel Buren In Multiple Locations
Experience the art series in Brazil, South Africa, Italy and Spain this 2024
Belmond has announced the third edition of its artistic series MITICO, in partnership with Galleria Continua, featuring six works by internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, Daniel Buren.
Launching in February 2024, six original, never seen before commissions by the French master will be on show at six of Belmond’s properties. They include Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro; Mount Nelson, Cape Town and Hotel Cipriani.
MITICO first launched in 2022 at four of Belmond’s Italian properties, followed by an expanded 2023 global line-up with works by artists featured in Mallorca, Sicily, Florence, Tuscany, and Oxfordshire.
In 2024, MITICO continued to place Belmond’s captivating portfolio under different artistic lenses, tapping into each destination’s individual essence and beauty. Heritage and artistic dialogue have been at the core of the brand’s vision since its inception in 1976.
On top of that, over time, Belmond has built an exceptional and ever-growing art collection at its global properties. By dedicating the 2024 MITICO series to Daniel Buren, a major figure in international contemporary art, Belmond and Galleria Continua showcase a continued preservation of artistic heritage whilst pushing the boundaries of shared cultural moments.
MITICO 2024’s cultural programming will kick off from February 2024 with Mount Nelson, to coincide with the property’s 125th anniversary year and Investec Cape Town Art Fair, which the hotel has collaborated to curate exhibitions displaying African talent in its halls.
Next, Copacabana Palace will unveil its work immediately after the city’s globally renowned Rio Carnival. In the Spring, Hotel Cipriani will launch its artwork during the Venice Art Biennale, ahead of Villa San Michele in Florence, where Leandro Erlich’s installation from the first edition resides “Window & Ladder”.
Last to launch are Castello di Casole, found hidden further within the Tuscan countryside, surrounded by 4,200 acres, and La Residencia in Mallorca, where the second year of their “Artist in Residencia” programme returns.
