In our hy­per-con­nected, vis­ually driven world of in­stant ac­cess, a cu­ri­ous art en­thu­si­ast does not need to look too hard for art. Sim­ple internet re­search will get you front-and-cen­ter with (lit­er­ally) thou­sands of images of art from artists, gal­leries and fes­ti­vals from around the world. How­ever, to truly ex­pe­ri­ence a work of art; to con­nect in­ti­mately and, per­haps, gain an in­sight into the artist’s mind, one must see it first-hand. Whether it be the vis­ceral ex­pe­ri­ence of a stun­ning oil on can­vas; an at­tempt at un­rav­el­ling the myr­iad lay­ers of a con­cep­tual in­stal­la­tion; get­ting lost in a sound and video project; or gaz­ing open-mouthed at a tow­er­ing mon­u­men­tal sculp­ture, art is best seen in real life.

With that re­sound­ing over­ture, here are 5 of the ab­so­lute best art ex­hi­bi­tions tak­ing place over the next 12 months.
