The Year Ahead: the best exhibitions to look forward to in 2022

In this first episode of The Week in Art podcast for 2022 we preview the big art world events of the year and look at what’s ahead in the art market. The Art Newspaper’s contemporary art correspondent Louisa Buck and the novelist and columnist at The Art Newspaper Chibundu Onuzo preview the year’s biennials and exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale and exhibitions devoted to Donatello, Stonehenge and Faith Ringgold, among many others. And our editor-at-large Georgina Adam has a stab at predicting the art market’s fortunes.
