First solo show in this country for American-born Hiller, one of the stars of last year's "Rites of Passage" exhibition at the Tate in London. Seductive, hallucinatory videos which update romantic narrative notions of memory and death.

A celebration of the ballet impresario and collector Sergei Diaghilev. Works by Bakst, Cocteau, Goncharova and Benois.
Barbican Art Gallery (0171-638 4141). Thurs to 14 Apr
Young Americans I
In a nice reciprocal gesture for the recent wave of young British art in the USA, the Saatchi offers a look at the work of four American artists from its own collection, including Janine Antoni's licked and gnawed chocolate bars, Gregory Green's potentially lethal home-made bombs, Sean Landers's frenzied writings on the wall and Charles Long's models of amorphous rubber lumps which recall that B-movie classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Don't miss it.
Saatchi Gallery, 98a Boundary Rd, NW8 (0171-624 8299). Thurs to 3 Mar (Thurs-Sun only)
