16 May: Now You See Us: Women Artists in Britain 1520-1920, Tate Britain, London, until 13 October 2024

Covering 400 years of art history, Now You See Us follows women such as Angelia Kauffman and Laura Knight as they worked to become professional artists. These women pushed back against the expectations of society by having painting commercial careers and exhibiting their work. The exhibition seems to redress the stereotypes that follow female artists, including that they were amateurs, and demonstrates how many took on subjects thought only for men: history paintings, battles, and nudes. It also shows how these women fought for equal access to training and Academy memberships and blazed a trail for artists working today.

2 June: Georgia O’Keefe: “My New Yorks”, The Art Institute of Chicago, until 22 September 2024

Though most well-known for her floral canvases and visions of the Southwest desert, O’Keefe also spent several years painting New York City. In 1925, she moved into the brand-new Shelton Hotel in 1925, which was then the tallest residential building in the world. She called the works she produced her “New Yorks,” going on to say that “One can’t paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.” This exhibition presents the first serious examination of O’Keefe’s New York period and brings it into dialogue with her other compositions of the 1920s and 1930s and argues that her New Yorks were central to her modernist artistic practice.


14 September: Van Gogh: Poets and Lovers, The National Gallery, London, until 19 January 2025

Celebrating its 200th anniversary this year, the National Gallery is hosting a crowd-pleasing blockbuster exhibition centered on Vincent van Gogh. The Gallery is bringing together the Dutch artist’s works from all over the world, some little seen in public, to be paired with his drawings. It looks at the years Van Gogh spent in Arles and Saint-Rémy as a “decisive period” of his career in which he” revolutionized” his style.

22 September: Matisse: Invitation to the Voyage, Fondation Beyeler, until 26 January 2025

In September, the Fondation Beyeler will host the first Henri Matisse retrospective in the German-speaking world in nearly 20 years.

Matisse continually referred to Baudelaire’s poem and its themes of luxury, peace and pleasure were central to the artist, who wrote in his Notes d’un peintre (1908), “what I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity”.

28 September: Paula Rego: Power Games, Kunstmuseum Basel, until 2 February 2025

The fantastical work of the late and daring Portuguese artist Paula Rego, who died in 2022, comes to the Kunstmuseum Basel in September. Rego, known for her fairy-tale figures was a powerful and visionary explorer of human relations, including social, political and sexual power and their particular effects on women, leading to her paintings to be called “crime scenes” by the Neue Zürcher Zeitung.

Works by Robert Delaunay, Sonia Delaunay, Marcel Duchamp, and František Kupka will be included.
