LAURA PARKER BOWLES

The 28-year-old daughter of Camilla Parker Bowles is gallery director at Eleven Fine Art. She is working on a summer exhibition of work by Norman Parkinson and Philip Treacy

. I've been desperate to see the Andreas Gursky exhibition at the Haus der Kunst in Munich, which runs until 13 May. His work amazes me (www.hausderkunst.de).

. In December I'll be in Miami for the various art fairs. I especially enjoyed PULSE last year. I also like to visit the satellite fairs. At Volta in Basel, Switzerland (11 to 16 June), one sees work by emerging international artists (www.pulse-art.com; www.voltashow.com).

. When in Venice I visit the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, where I studied.

The restaurant serves the most delicious food, especially the pasta pomodoro.

I became obsessed with Francis Bacon's Study for Chimpanzee. Apparently Bacon hated it and didn't want it on show (www.guggenheim-venice.it).

. I like to visit the Acquavella Galleries, in a beautiful French neoclassical townhouse in New York.

PILAR CORRIAS

Director at Haunch of Venison, Pilar Corrias, 37, travels constantly and in the past month has been to Madrid, New York, Zurich and Paris

. A beautiful building by Renzo Piano is the Beyeler Foundation in Basel, which has an outstanding collection of modern classics (www.beyeler.com).

. Rivoli Castle Museum in Turin is a contemporary art museum in an uncompleted Baroque building from the 18th century. The works are specially chosen to complement the frescoed walls and ceilings (www.castellodirivoli.it).

. Although well off the beaten track, the vast space of Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria holds world-class exhibitions. It is a glass, steel and concrete building in the middle of the ski resort of Bregenz (www.kunsthaus-bregenz.at).

TIM TAYLOR

The 43-year-old is the director of the Timothy Taylor Gallery in the West End. He has four children with his wife, Lady Helen Taylor

. Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Caracas Sofia Imber (Maccsi), in the centre of the Venezuelan capital, was built by one extraordinary woman to showcase the best European and American contemporary art (www. …
