Room 524 - VIK Presidential Suite
Galleria Vik Milano features 89 unique rooms and suites singularly designed to showcase remarkable art, décor, views and experiences. Each room and suite is graced by art installations by Italian, Uruguayan and international artists. Guest room walls are finished in stucco Veneziano, a luxurious Italian design technique, with twenty different color variations that complement the suite’s decor. The retreat hotel features singularly designed bathrooms, some are site specific art installations while others feature exceptional marbles and other stones.
Galleria Vik Milano resumes its activity with the solo exhibition dedicated to the Japanese painter and sculptress Tomoko Nagao. Tomoko is of Japanese origin but has lived in Italy for many years and is one of the most interesting exponents of Japanese new pop. The title of the exhibition, Women in Pop, alludes to the artist's choice to provide an explicitly feminine look at contemporary society with a strong connotation of social criticism, especially towards the invasiveness of corporate and multinational brands in our lives, albeit always within an extremely pop, ironic and amused setting. "The icon, often reduced to a mere fetish or bulwark of feminism, is brought back this time to the search for an archetype", writes the curator of the exhibition, Giuditta Elettra Lavinia Nidiaci: "it is that of Hello Kitty, of Kawaii aesthetics, of a not superficial lightness. The image of the woman is colorful, but not disruptive, lively but not intrusive. Tomoko's woman is a friend, who holds out her hand, and therefore truly "pop" in the original meaning of "popular:” a woman, in short, who wants to talk to everyone.”

Where we are
The 20th century is synonymous with modernity and progress, the rise of the work of the human genius. Considered one of the sites of Milanese luxury shopping, along with Via Montenapoleone and Via della Spiga, the Galleria hosts many prestigious labels and brand shops, famous cafés and restaurants.
If you wish to return to Milan, a well-known tradition suggests that you have a spin with your heel on the mosaic bull’s “attributes” on the pavement of the Galleria’s splendid central octagon. Once a gesture to ward off evil, it has become part of the Milanese tradition and has such a following that a deep hole has formed in the bull.
