SEEING IS BELIEVING

(Tate Liverpool)

The Tate divides its works into spiritual sub-sections of contemplation, harmony and reflection. Bridget Riley is in the congregation. (0151-702 7400) to 2 May

WALTER SICKERT

(City Art Gallery, Southampton)

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

WYNDHAM LEWIS (Courtauld Institute, London)

Drawings by the British avant-garde artist and novelist, who was a superb shape-maker and colourist. (020-7848 2777) ends Sun

ZJOSEPH BEUYS

(Tate Modern, London)

The mythic German artist and shaman devoted to the cause of "social sculpture"; here, his vitrines, "actions" and environments. (020-7887 8000) to 2 May

FACES IN A CROWD (Whitechapel Gallery, London)

A pocket history of figurative art and the modern city, in paintings (Manet, Hopper) and photos (Capa, Gursky). (020-7522 7888) to 27 Feb

AND ONE TO AVOID

FRANcOIS BOUCHER (Wallace Collection, London)

We're not seduced by the 18th-century French painter's erotic-decorative world of frothy and flouncy romps.
