“The Exchange.” section of WSJ Magazine is a window into what is beautiful and culturally vibrant in the world. The life of Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of Serpentine Galleries, maximizes spontaneity by living a purposeful structured existence:

“I believe in embracing chance in the process – serendipitous moments happen ever day” 

Three times a day he takes a 10-minute walk between the Serpentine Gallery and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, separated by Serpentine Lake in Kensington Gardens, one of eight Royal Parks in London.

Meetings with, among others, poets, painters, architects and Neurologists are “weaved” into exhibits, symposiums and interviews of the most important modern artists.
