If art is a narrative lens on culture, then access to private art collections is the ne plus ultra of the local cultural experience. Harry Hastings, the eminently connected founder-director of Plan South America (www.plansouthamerica.com; bespoke itineraries from £4,900), certainly has VIP creds at the top events in Brazil – South America’s powerhouse for art and design – including São Paulo Biennial, ArtRio and SP-Arte. In 2017, he is offering private views of, and special access to, some major private collections further afield, including the world-class one amassed by Santiago-based Juan Yarur, showcasing artists from Chilenos Alfredo Jaar and Cristian Silva to Takashi Murakami and Robert Mapplethorpe; and the modernist works that feature in the collection of José Darío Gutiérrez, one of Colombia’s best-known art philanthropists (he founded the non-profit Proyecto Bachué), who welcomes Hastings’ clients to his 10th-storey penthouse for viewings.
