Galleries You Loved the Most in December

December 29, 2015

Among contemporary art circles, December is usually perceived as a month when all activities during the year are being summed up. When it comes to galleries, they measure the success of the exhibitions they organized, how many artworks were sold, and finally, and most important – they plan activities for the year to come. In December, we saw a number of amazing exhibitions, and we have covered dozens of them. We are slowly approaching 2016, and while making New Year resolutions, we hope that the quality of the galleries’ activities whose work we are following will remain the same. Here, in Widewalls, we are also recapitulating all our activities in 2015, and we are looking forward to new adventures in 2016. Still, as every month, we are looking back what marked the month, and now, the time has come for December. So, scroll down, and take a look at 10 most visited galleries on Widewalls during the month of December.
