London Fashion Week
February 19-24
London, UK

This event brings together established British designers and new talents in a five-day showcase event. London Fashion Week recently added a day specifically dedicated to men's fashion.


Edvard Munch exhibition
February 19-July 18
Pinacothèque de Paris
Paris, France

The Paris exhibit entitled "Edvard Munch or the anti-scream" at the Pinacothèque aims at giving a different perception of the Norwegian master, mostly known for his internationally acclaimed painting The Scream (1893). According to the Pinacothèque, this work is not "representative of his oeuvre", that's why the survey will showcase around 100 Munch works, an event in the French capital since the painter hasn't been seen there in 20 years.


Size Does Matter: curated by Shaquille O'Neal
February 19-May 27
The Flag Art Foundation
New York, USA

Professional basketball player Shaquille O'Neal has set out to show the world that size does actually matter. The NBA star is curating a large-scale art exhibition that boasts microscopic, barely visible pieces and creations so big they dwarf even the likes of 2.16m tall O'Neal. Works by the likes of Franz Gertsch, Anselm Kiefer, Jeff Koons, Ron Mueck, Paul Pfeiffer, Charles Ray, Cindy Sherman, Ken Solomo, Willard Wigan and Ivan Witenstein will highlight the relationship between size, scale and perspective throughout a variety of different mediums.
