Unlock Art by Le Meridien
Art is somewhat of a mystic treasure to the modern male. We may appreciate it, but when it comes to the history and terminology, we may be lacking just a little. However, similar to fine wine, a little bit of knowledge can go a long way to impress at a dinner party, a lady, or perhaps even the in-laws.
Thankfully help is on the way. One of the most popular and iconic art galleries in the world, TATE, has teamed up with Le Merdien Hotels to guide us on a journey spanning 8 months and 8 collaborative films. Our path of discovery will see us getting tips in buying art, different types of art such as; Performance, Pop and even The Nude.
