One of the most important events this season is the Art Basel Hong-Kong on March 23-25, 2017. Art Basel stages the world's preeminent Modern and Contemporary Art Shows, held annually in three dynamic cities, Basel, Hong Kong and Miami Beach. Each show is defined by its host city, teeming with parallel exhibitions and cultural events held at public museums, private collections, non-profit spaces and art galleries. Art Basel in Hong-Kong showcases the works by emerging generation of artists in Discoveries. Galleries will exhibit new works created specifically for the show by up to two emerging contemporary artists from their gallery program.

This issue of Roadshow of Contemporary Arts Magazine also presents: "A Revolutionary Impulse: The Rise of the Russian Avant-Garde” at The Museum of Modern Art from the 3rd of December 2016 through March 12, 2017. This exhibition brings together nearly 300 works from MoMA’s collection, tracing the arc of a period of artistic innovation between 1912 and 1934.

'Works & Process' at the Guggenheim is pleased to announce its spring 2017 season. Since 1984, the performing arts series has championed new works and offered audiences unprecedented access to leading creators and performers. Each intimate, 80-minute performance combines artistic creation with stimulating conversation, and takes place in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed, 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. Described by the New York Times as “a popular series devoted to shedding light on the creative process,” Works & Process is produced by founder Mary Sharp Cronson.

Another interesting exhibition at MOMA's Contemporary Galleries is Nan Goldin's "The Ballad of Sexual Dependency" from June 11, 2016 till February 12, 2017. Comprising almost 700 snapshot-like portraits sequenced against an evocative music soundtrack, Nan Goldin’s The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a deeply personal narrative, formed out of the artist’s own experiences around Boston, New York, Berlin, and elsewhere in the late 1970s, 1980s, and beyond.
