Art shows to see in London, LA, NYC, Amsterdam and Paris in September 2023

From the long-awaited retrospectives of Marina Abramović and Sarah Lucas to an expansive survey of Black British fashion, and Quil Lemons’ kink-inspired self portraiture... we take a look at some of this month’s most exciting exhibitions

The September issue! The month where everything comes back with a bang after a restful August. Honestly, there are so many amazing shows opening that I haven’t been able to fit them all here. So this list, though not definitive, should keep you very busy – at least until October.

Given its fashion week worldwide, expect shows to pay homage to the design greats of past and present with shows like Rebel: 30 Years of London Fashion at the Design Museum and The Missing Thread at Somerset House. Everyone’s Art Mutha Marina Abramović will finally open her retrospective at the Royal Academy in London. And in New York City, 20 seminal queer artists explore the “comforts and complications” of queer domestic life in a show that takes inspiration from one of Catherine Opie’s most affecting works. Oh, and I’m back with a new season of Art After Hours, kicking off in London in mid-September. See you there!
