Days by days, Art exhibitions helped to change the course of art history by scandalizing, provoking and influencing both artists and art audiences alike. These fine art exhibitions were powerful, in part, due to the vision of the curators, who knew which themes and selection of artists, and the juxtaposition of their artworks, would help create historical exhibitions that would not be forgotten.

But the time has change the art taste of people and every year we have a different list of most popular art exhibitions. In this article we will provide the top of Art Exhibitions of 2017 in different art schools.


Icons of Modern Art at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris

In 2017 Icons of Modern Art at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris comes firstly in the list of people loving modern Art.

The Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil with exhibition named “Monderian and De Stijl” is the second one which has drawn many visitors’ attention. The Brazilian venue is the only free show—a contrast to 2016, when six of the top ten were free.

The exhibition brings together about 70 works including paintings, architectural drawings, furniture and photographs. It was emphasized the work by Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) and an important names of the Dutch movement known as De Stijl (The Style)


The exhibition is held in the capital of Japan with hundreds of different large and small paints. The Japanese have a particular interest in European art from the beginning of the 19th century, so it is not surprising that the three most fashionable exhibitions in this genre should be held in Tokyo, with the Tower Bruegel's babel. The first exhibition showed an enlarged reproduction of the titular painting so that visitors could get a closer look at the hundreds of tiny figures depicted in the work. Famous names, Vermeer and Caravaggio, did bring the success to here. Of course we can see that, no matter what the world, the names of some artists are guaranteed to drag in the crowd: Vermeer and Caravaggio both did the tricks for the Louvre last year.

We can see that the Saatchi Gallery exhibits a consistent presence on this list, demonstrating that false judgments or lack of art knowledge did not hinder the progress of the museum. There are over 7509 visitors every day for Painters' painters beggars belief. Unlike Saatchi's free programs, based on the number of people visiting, we can see the popularity of this gallery, and Bill Viola and Yayoi Kusama, two popular names around the world. , attracted a lot of people.

Pierre Huyghe, acclaimed by critics, has benefited from his undoubtedly biggest audience at the Guggenheim in Bilbao. But the most famous artist of the year has to come to David Hockney: his show in Tate Britain has left 478,000 people with their money, just for him, and then 621,000 people see the exhibits.
