Galleries You Must Visit - October's Favorites
In the midst of the art fair season, we are blessed with many opportunities to see remarkable exhibitions of our favorite artists outside the gallery spaces as well. As ART.FAIR Cologne is behind us, we are looking forward to the 2016 edition of Artissima, where the eclectic modern and contemporary art from Italy will meet the international scene yet again. Many of our favorite galleries will once more be there to show their very best works, but let’s not forget the amazing shows opening outside the realms of art fairs as well, which are definitely worth our attention and time. Straight from our galleries database, following our monthly tradition, we bring you the most popular spaces you should visit, as we explore what’s on view and what’s coming next! Scroll down.
