Take an artistic journey across the world

Francesco Clemente has spent most of his 40-year career as a type of nomad, from his native Italy to periods of work in New York, Brazil, Afghanistan and India. At the heart of his work is an understanding of the self that traverses geography and civilisations. This exhibition in New York sees him explore this ideas by transforming tents into artworks. Two Tents runs at the Mary Boone Gallery in New York until December 20. For more information visit www.maryboonegallery.com.

Visit Antwerp for its cultural fair

Collectors, dealers, art-lovers, design experts and gallery owners are all set to converge on Antwerp for its eight-day cultural fair next month. Local museums, historical buildings, antique showrooms and jewellers have all been harnessed and organisers have promised a cultural fair of diversity, with an interesting blend of art, interior design and more. Art Antwerp runs from December 5 to 12. For more information visit www.artantwerp.com.

Explore Rembrandt’s late works

The later years of Rembrandt were marked by bankruptcy, legal wranglings, personal turmoil but also creativity. From the 1650s until his death in 1669, his style became expressive and radical. This London exhibition looks at the themes that preoccupied Rembrandt as he grew older: light, self-scrutiny and experimentation. Take your chance to see Rembrandt: The Late Works as it finishes at the National Gallery on January 18. For more information visit www.nationalgallery.org.uk.
