Current and Upcoming Museum Exhibitions

Updated 5 April 2021

Each month, the AJA provides information about current and upcoming museum exhibits around the world that are related to topics within the scope of the journal. The list includes exhibition dates, locations, curators, information about catalogues, and links to museum websites with further information. It is organized by geographic location (The Americas, Europe, the United Kingdom and Russia, the Middle East, Africa, East Asia, and Oceania). Within that larger framework, exhibitions are arranged alphabetically by country and then by closing date. If a catalogue is not mentioned, then no catalogue is known to us. New museums and permanent gallery installations are included on the list for six months following their opening. The AJA Museum Review Editor welcomes input from readers for additions to this list.

The public health crisis associated with COVID-19 has closed many museums around the world. We will persist in listing all of the exhibitions that we know about in the hopes that they will be accessible again soon. Many of the exhibitions on the list have robust websites that are worth a close look. Please check with individual museums before making a visit in person.
