Today...

Never mind the National Gallery; in Trafalgar Square you'll find exciting, free art at Under Scan. The week-long temporary installation will project video portraits of over 1,000 people from around the UK that will shadow visitors around the square (artlightslondon.com).

This week...

The Fontainebleau hotel is set to reopen tomorrow in Miami Beach after a decadent refurb (fontainebleau.com). Back in London, the Earthwatch Institute's annual debate is at the Royal Geographical Society on Thursday. Five leading scientists will defend their choice of the world's most precious species (earthwatch.org.uk).

In the diary...

All eyes will be on Qatar next Saturday when the new IM Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art opens in Doha, housing a trove of work from the Middle East and beyond (mia.org.qa). Be prepared for air traffic in Italy to grind to a halt on 25 November as Alitalia pilots and crew threaten further strike action (alitalia.com). And in Chichester, The Fish House hotel is set to open at the end of the month, with 15 stylish bedrooms, hot tubs and a restaurant serving a fish-focused menu and sizeable wine list (thefishhouse.co.uk).
