Art shows to leave the house for this December

From Jimmy DeSana’s radical nudes to the unsung women of Atlanta’s hip hop scene, we round up the best art and photography exhibitions to catch this month

If you’re reading this, congratulations – you’ve made it to the final level of 2022… and my last art list for the year.

A lot is closing this month – which means new beginnings in 2023 – so I’ve included a few “last chance to see” shows here. Of course, there’s the usual museum, gallery, and online mix, so I hope you’ll be able to use this list in whatever way you can. Don’t forget some shows from last month’s list are still running (like City of Kings at Howl! and Theaster Gates’ retrospective at New Museum, both in New York City), so make sure to re-visit if you’re looking for even more (!) to see. I’ll be back here in January as a bright, shiny new year of contemporary art dawns.
