The Season’s Best Exhibitions

Autumn always brings a flurry of excellent art shows across the country – and this year is no exception. In addition to the William Klein show at Tate Modern, Monograph has rounded up the best of the other top art events.

Jim Shaw: The Rinse Cycle: LA artist Jim Shaw is best known in the UK for his hilarious, abject and sometimes inspired paintings found in second-hand stores. His investigations of popular culture span all media: painting, music, video and performance. Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, 9 November to 17 February 2013.

Liverpool Biennial: The latest Liverpool Biennial, titled The Unexpected Guest, explores the underwhelming theme of hospitality. It’s a city-wide catch-all including 242 artists in 27 locations: rude words by Gilbert & George, Mona Hatoum in the Cunard Building, the sci-fi work of Anthony McCall and the brilliantly voyeuristic photographs of Kohei Yoshiyuki. Various venues, Liverpool, until November 15.

Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s: More than 400 works by 12 photographers from around the world, including the incomparable William Eggleston, Boris Mikhailov, Raghubir Singh and Sigmar Polke. What the subversive German painter Polke is doing here is a tantalising mystery, in a show that deals with politics, wars, colonial misadventures and photography’s coming of age. Barbican, London, until 13 January 2013.
