Not to be missed, 2011

‘You mustn’t miss it – it closes on Sunday’. How often we have heard this or said it. And how often, having failed to catch some important, revealing or enhancing exhibition, we offer a lame excuse – the queue was too long, there was a train strike – for not having experienced this ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ show. We therefore offer here a selection of museum exhibitions to give readers advance warning of some of the potential delights of 2011. Of course it is not always easy to gauge the scope and depth of future shows. Museum press releases put their best foot forward, not always being strictly accurate in their recommen­dations of ‘groundbreaking’, ‘iconic’ and ‘innovative’ shows.
