Art shows to see in London, Amsterdam and Los Angeles in October 2023

From Marina Abramović and Amber Pinkerton’s long-awaited solo exhibitions, to a nostalgic portrait of London's indie sleaze era, we take a look at the world’s must-see exhibitions this month

If you thought September was packed, wait until October hits. Not only does Frieze land in London’s Regents Park and 1-54 Contemporary Art Fair opens at Somerset House, but galleries and museums all across the world seem to be putting the final touches on an array of brand-spanking new shows, readying to open.

It will be particularly hard to miss Marina Abramović as her art majesty descends on London with the opening of her long-awaited RA retrospective (as detailed in last month’s column), but there’s also the UK premiere of her opera and a staged takeover with the students of the Marina Abramović Institute. Further abroad, the Hammer Museum’s sixth iteration of Made in LA launches with the theme ‘acts of living’, while feminist art hero Judy Chicago gets her flowers with a NYC retrospective. Whereas Anna Uddenberg’s UK solo show will undoubtedly cause a big social media stir. Oh, and don’t forget to join my Art After Hours tour later this month – otherwise, see you back here come November.
