Every week, on Forbes.com, Jonathon Keats will be curating "an itinerary of exhibitions worldwide." In his words: "Every week, I’ll add a new one, interpreting the work and making a case for why it deserves notice. And at the end of the month, I’ll call attention to a few more worthy shows in a few more cities around the world. Regularly visiting here, you can expect to encounter more than a hundred exhibitions a year.
You will not, I trust, see all of them. You may not get to see any. But while direct experience often affords the best view of artwork, by no means are plane tickets a requirement, since the world can also be traveled on the web. There has never been a better time to be an art aficionado than right now, because there have never been more opportunities to experience art vicariously."
The first show he takes us to see is now open at the San Francisco Legion of Honor: Man Ray/Lee Miller: Partners in Surrealism.
HERE you can read his article, where he talks about the famous couple - "one of the era’s most original artists" and "one of the century’s great photographers" - and about their "solarized portraits", which "possess the uncanny allure of surrealism without the usual cloying symbolism."
