Art shows to leave the house for in April 2023

From Steve McQueen’s film on Grenfell to Nan Goldin’s vast San Francisco retrospective, we round up the best exhibitions to catch this month

The power running through this month’s art shows rundown is palpable – at times, overwhelming. Many important conversations are being held in galleries and museums around the world through the mediums of art and photography, from Steve McQueen’s debut of his film bringing awareness, six years on, to the Grenfell Tower fire, to Ryan Calais Cameron’s stunning play, For Black Boys, which explores race and masculinity through the site of a group therapy session. Elsewhere, the legacy of our great women artists – from Nan Goldin, Tacita Dean, Brigette Lacombe and Catherine Opie – are being uplifted, and new artists like Dazed 100 alumni, filmmaker and photographer Gabriel Moses are opening their first solo shows. There’s a lot to be felt in the shows that follow, but that’s the gift of great art. See you back here next month.
