OK, strategising over, so leave the hotel and go straight to a meeting about more imminent things - in this case a Mario Testino exhibition. We'd known about the prospect of this for several months but it was all hanging in the balance. Now all systems go with a frighteningly soon opening date, just 4 weeks away at Beijing's Today Art Museum. OK, he's Peruvian, but has lived and worked out of London for years, so we're claiming him, and His People are keen for the show to be part of UK Now. I met him once, 10 years ago, when his big Portraits exhibition came to Tokyo. For all the bling and model friends, he seemed a nice chap.
