David Zwirner presents new large-scale paintings and sculptures by Dana Schutz in 'Jupiter's Lottery' at 525 and 533 West 19th Street in New York. The exhibition, painted wet-on-wet, is ambitious in scale and complexity, depicting allegorical scenes in which often grotesque characters negotiate the human predicament. Likewise, the sculptures modeled in clay before being cast in bronze, give three-dimensional, gestural form to Schutz's imagined characters and scenes.

Happy Gas, Sarah Lucas' newly opened exhibition at Tate Britain is a theatrical and at times surprising installation of works from 1991 to the present. The presentation was selected and configured by the artist and gives us the full spectrum of her bold, provocative but tender works that challenge our understanding of sex, class and gender delivered with Lucas' wry humour and unflinching social commentary.
In the summer of 1982, Jean-Michel Basquiat travelled to Modena in Italy at the invitation of Gallery owner Emilio Mazzoli.

More than 40 years later all the 'Modena Paintings', which are now held in global collections, are being displayed together for the very first time.
