Picasso, Miró, Dalí. Angry Young Men: the Birth of Modernity tracks the three influential artists during their early career, detailing how their early works played a decisive role in the beginning of modern art in Spain. The exhibition focuses on Picasso's pre-cubist works painted during 1900 to 1905, Juan Miró's works from 1915-1920 and Salvodor Dalí's works from 1920 to 1925 - all of which have been rarely shown in mainstream exhibitions.

Art Paris
March 31 - April 3
Grand Palais
Paris, France
Map

Art Paris bends the rules of traditional art fairs by creating an event that is centered around contemporary art projects rather than the traditional art fair booth model. Participating galleries co-organize projects with other local and international participants, creating a cacophony of thematic works that extend the barriers of the traditional art fair set-up. The artworks revel around strong creative ideas, fusing mediums such as painting, sculpture, drawing, video, performance and installation with architecture, design, fashion gastronomy, literature and cinema. In 2011 there are 120 galleries exhibiting works and more than 48,000 visitors are expected to attend. Other notable art fairs taking place in Paris in 2011 include Le Salon D'Automne (October 12-16), FIAC (October 20-23), Cutlog (October 20-23), and Paris Photo (November 9-13).

April 1-3
Tokyo International Forum, Exhibition Hall & Lobby Gallery
Tokyo, Japan
Map

Art Fair Tokyo is a broad-ranging art fair that encompasses contemporary and modern art as well as more traditional Japanese art forms such as nihonga (Japanese-style paintings) and ukiyoe (Japanese woodblock art). The event drew a record crowd of 50,000 visitors in 2010. The Fair's motto is "art is something to buy, not just something to look at." More than 130 galleries will showcase works made by local and international artists. Art Fair Tokyo will be held concurrently with exhibitions at several art museums and art projects in the greater Tokyo area as part of Tokyo Art Week (March 26 - April 3).
