Last Chance: Art Shows You Shouldn’t Miss

Sweeties, it’s your last chance to see some amazing art shows. Here’s our roundup of exhibits you shouldn’t miss.

Giacometti at The Tate Modern If you’re in London, don’t miss this retrospective of the great Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti – the first time such a show has been put on in the UK for 20 years. More than 250 works – spanning drawings, paintings, plasters, and of course, sculptures – comprise the exhibition, which was co-organized by the Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti, Paris, meaning many rarely seen works on are view. Until 10 September 2017 

Edvard Munch: Between the Clock and the Bed at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art A compelling show that takes the artist’s last self portrait as its starting point, and then examines his life’s work in retrospect. 44 significant works are on view (not The Scream, though – that doesn't leave Oslo), including six works never before seen in the US and many from the Munch’s personal collection. An excellent opportunity to delve into the evolution of one of Modern Art’s most compelling figures. Until 9 October 2017

 

Portraits by Cezanne at The Musee d’Orsay. Sweeties, if you’re lucky enough to be in Paris, head to the Musee d’Orsay to see this great exhibit of portraits by Post-Impressionist Paul Cezanne. The artist created some 200 portraits in his lifetime, including many complimentary pairs or multiple versions of the same subject. Chronologically ordered, this is a great display of how Cezanne changed over time. If you miss the show in Paris, look for it at the National Portrait Gallery in London next, followed by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Until 24 September 2017

 

Austrian Masterworks from the Neue Gallery. New York’s amazing Neue Gallery is celebrating 15 years with an absolute must-see exhibition of Austrian work from the period 1890-1940. That means major works by Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Alfred Kubin and more. For example, this is a rare chance to see both of Klimt’s astonishing portraits of Adele Bloch-Bauer (1907 and 1912) in the same place at the same time. Many of the loans for this exhibit have already been extended, so this is your last chance, Sweeties! Until 25 September 2017.
