SEEING IS BELIEVING

TURKS

(Royal Academy, London)

Culturama of Ottoman artefacts and objects, from AD600 to 1600, tracing developments in textiles, metalwork, ceramic, script. (020-7300 8000) to 12 Apr

WYNDHAM LEWIS (Courtauld Institute, London)

ZWALTER SICKERT

(City Art Gallery, Southampton)

Drawings and prints by the turn-of-the-century painter of the London underside: cramped interiors, crowded theatres, unsettled nudes. (023-8083 2277) to 20 Mar

AND ONE TO AVOID

BRUCE NAUMAN (Tate Modern, London)

The artist fills the Turbine Hall with sound. Even he admits he can't stand to be around his own work for too long.
