Top Trending Art Exhibitions to see in the first 6 months of 2020!
Olivia Drage, January 28, 2020

2020 is packed with fascinating and jaw-dropping art exhibitions. Although there are hundreds of notable exhibitions this year, it would be almost impossible to attend them all. I have read about many and compiled a list of what I believe to be the most significant exhibitions dominating the next six months. My choices were based on a number of factors: The artist, the venue and the location, and not just because they are my personal favourites. They explore and highlight significant advancements and achievements in art, crucial debates of the modern day and celebrate the talent housed in our creative institutions.

This might be due to loss of documentation, the nature of style within artistic movements or forgery.
