Must-See Summer Shows

After Art Basel in Basel, the art world disperses to their respective summer retreats, and gears up for a bustling fall season. Galleries are left with the challenge to draw their audiences back in—and they do so through dynamic group exhibitions, solo shows, and experimental presentations to showcase their rosters. Focusing on art capitals from New York to Singapore, we offer a selection of shows that, come September, you’ll be glad you didn’t miss.
