And the spate of shows like a restaging of a monumental Diane Arbus retrospective and screening of Meriem Bennani and Orian Barki’s delightfully kooky lizard videos that opened in September were just the beginning: October will see Alex Katz mark a career milestone with a takeover of the Guggenheim Museum, Paris host its first-ever Art Basel, and so much more. Here, a guide to all the goings-on you’d do well not to miss.

The show, which also includes a new group of paintings, opens a day into Miami Art Week on November 28.
