This month, don’t miss these hot happenings around the world.
London // Move over Picasso, it’s time for South American artists to get their share of the modernist limelight. Artists of the 20th century redefined aesthetic conventions, and now visitors to London’s Royal Academy of Arts can catch a glimpse of the revolution themselves. The new exhibition, Radical Geometry: Modern Art of South America, features works from Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela that pushed boundaries and shattered expectations. Through September 28. Burlington House, Piccadilly.
Charlotte // Even 25 years after the debut of his self-titled television show, Jerry Seinfeld’s influence on the entertainment world is stronger than ever. The Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee creator is back to his roots with a U.S. comedy tour, making light of life’s mundanities in down-home North Carolina. July 25. Ovens Auditorium.
Tokyo // Fireworks shows have been synonymous with Japanese summers for hundreds of years; and Tokyo’s Sumida River Fireworks Festival, originating in 1733, is among the largest and most famous of the bunch. To rejuvenate the display, the celebration integrates a creative fireworks contest, launched from the Sakura-bashi Bridge. Food vendors and game stalls also play into the fun. July 26. Sumida River.
