Here are over a dozen other art museum exhibits currently on view that we would love to see — if time and our travel budget would permit it, we’d visit all of these in the next few weeks. Are you in?

One of our far-flung correspondents is on his way there even as we write, and he promises to share the highlights upon his return. While we wait for this year’s edition to commence, we thought this was the perfect moment to look at the best art from the past few years of the festival.
