We recommend these phenomenal art exhibitions currently showing in major metropolitan cities.
Centre Pompidou: Joan Miró, 1917 - 1934
This exhibition-event will be focusing on the complexity of the work of Joan Miró between 1920 and 1930, years of intense production and exuberant invention in the visual arts’ field. An exceptional display of some 100 paintings matched by the same number of collages, constructions and inventions of all sorts. An opportunity for the public to discover masterpieces -some shown for the first time- many of which have long since left European shores.

Guggenheim Museum : Constanin Brancusi, 1876 - 1957
Constantin Brancusi is a legendary figure of twentieth-century art. He was described by one of his contemporaries, the poet Guillaume Apollinaire, as an artist of "great refinement," a description that fits both Brancusi's spiritual quest as a sculptor and the radically simplified, essential forms of his sculpture. Organized thematically, Constantin Brancusi: The Essence of Things seeks to capture the essential character of Brancusi's sculpture. This carefully selected group of works, primarily carved from wood and stone, traces themes that preoccupied the sculptor for more than thirty years.

Modern Tate: Edward Hopper, 1882–1967
Edward Hopper is considered to be one of America's greatest modern painters. This retrospective exhibition is the first major Hopper show to take place in the UK for over twenty years and presents many of his most iconic images. Hopper's enduring popularity stems from his ability to stage scenes from everyday life in a way which also addresses universal concerns. This exhibition features seventy works ranging from his early Parisian subjects to the poignant portraits of American life created more than sixty years later. It also presents his iconic streetscapes of New York, including the much-loved paintings Nighthawks and Automat.

Kyoto National Museum : The Sacred World of Shinto Art in Kyoto
The former capital of Kyoto with its long history is blessed with many famous shrines, which are endowed with many treasures. These sacred gifts to the gods were not meant for mortal eyes, hence, their very nature kept them from public display. This exhibition explores the world of Shinto through images of deities, narrative handscrolls, paintings of festivals, documents, and votive ema plaques from renowned shrines in Kyoto.
