For many people, the last 18 months have been lacking the communal experience of seeing art in exhibitions. Long-dark museums sat empty, nursing a backlog of explosive creative works yearning for the chance to be beheld by a captive audience.
Every year, billions of dollars worth of art pass through international auction houses, while leading museums each hold tens of thousands of artworks in their collections.
They do this to attract art lovers, enthusiasts and dealers alike to gather together for exhibitions of a lifetime.
Exhibitions act as the catalyst of art and ideas to the public; they represent a way of displaying and contextualizing art that makes it relevant and accessible to contemporary audiences.
Now, some of the world’s most anticipated exhibitions are ready for their turn in the spotlight.
From new work by rising art stars, immersive experiences and rarely seen pieces by significant players of the 20th century, these upcoming art shows are sure to be standouts.
