Carter Cleveland, founder and CEO of Artsy, a next-generation online resource for contemporary art, reveals his travel essentials—and his favorite destinations.

Functional Form

My Côte & Ciel Isar Rucksack is sturdy and durable, with compartments to organize my travel essentials: laptop, iPhone, Kindle, adapters, and earplugs.

Unforgettable Journey

I recently traveled to Tel Aviv with a group of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and met Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and the mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat. It was exciting to learn how they’ve made technology a critical part of their country’s success. I also visited the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, where I saw a comprehensive show by Brazilian artist Vik Muniz, plus works by some of my favorite artists—Shirin Neshat, Anselm Kiefer, and Max Ernst.

Next Trip

I’m heading to Istanbul soon for the first time.
