In the last couple of weeks, we have covered dozens (probably, more than hundred) exhibitions that took place all around the world. Although the season of art fairs has started, and despite the fact that we also write features about art market, art history, art collections and other various topics, art exhibitions’ previews still represent a major section of our articles. And, as you can see, we cover activities of galleries from all the continents; there are bigger and smaller ones; those promoting emerging artists, those promoting established ones. All in all, our coverage of galleries’ activities from all around the world is a representative overview of what contemporary and urban art galleries are working on at the moment. At the end of every month, we present the list of 10 most visited galleries on Widewalls. So, scroll down and take a look what galleries were the most popular ones among our readers.
