Exhibitions can come in many ways and forms. They are usually done to commemorate festivals,events, cultural traditions, and art celebrated in a certain geography. As travelers, we ought to know that art exhibitions are not exclusively for the rich and sophisticated. They can also be pop culture-centric beautiful masterpieces we can simply appreciate during our stops. A work of art does not necessarily have to be done during a renaissance period or a contemporary artist; all that matters is the creative mind on display. With that said, here are 6 must visit exhibitions for travelers in 2018:
