As the world become increasingly surrealistic, it is fitting that a major exhibition on André Breton, the father of surrealism, is being held in the Cahors Museum, in southwestern France until the end of December.
You may have heard this story before: classical music is in decline, music education is so important, but why should you care? Failing orchestras create severe economic, social, and cultural repercussions for our nation as a whole. This is very much your problem.
I am proud to present the first UK exhibition of the photography of Mikhail Baryshnikov, world famous dancer, choreographer, actor and accomplished photographer. 'Dancing Away' is a visual representation of Baryshnikov's very personal interpretation of dance and performance; an expert dancer's reflection upon his own metier.
To dole out fines for wall art, or sell the Detroit Institute of Arts' assets to satisfy creditors in the city bankruptcy, would be to destroy the core of what sustains this city and will continue to make it stronger.
While civil unrest continues to pervade the east of Ukraine, a new generation of artists and musicians in Kiev are creating wide spectrum of sounds and spectacles. At the forefront of this burgeoning scene is Lyudska Padova (Human Shape).

Presented by an entity that calls itself "New York's Piney Fork Press Theatre," the reading took place at a New York Public Library branch I'd also never heard of: the George Bruce branch on West 125th Street.
That could be why Aspen Santa Fe Ballet -- which runs this week at The Joyce -- has developed such a solid fan base among Big Apple balletomanes.
Wright would go on to become the impossibly prolific leader of the Prairie School: He completed more than 1,100 designs, nearly half of which were built, and a number of his masterworks were set in and around the Windy City.
Saying the unsayable in his wickedly funny, well-observed folk songs, Wainwright is profane, smart, poking received wisdom in the eye and then grabbing your heart with a tender and devastating truth about life and love, mistakes and mystery.
