We're already a few days into the new year, which means that everyone around you has probably already made up his mind to lose weight or drink less in 2015—new year's resolutions that are sure to last only a few days. Instead of vowing to accomplish the impossible, make a new year's resolution that you'll actually keep: visit more art exhibitions. There is scientific evidence that our brains have literally been designed for art appreciation. It's a foolproof goal that'll only add more culture to your life and help you not look like an idiot during Art Basel Miami Beach next December.
There are a handful of dope art exhibitions happening throughout the month of January. Spring Breakers filmmaker Harmony Korine will soon open not one but two shows with Gagosian Gallery, in Beverly Hills and the Eden Rock Gallery in St. Barts. Then, on Jan. 16, the New York Historical Society will be opening the doors to "Freedom Journey 1965," in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March that took place during the Civil Rights era. Close-up photographs taken by Stephen Somerstein of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, and others will be on view.
No matter where in the world you find yourself this winter, there's an art exhibition for everyone. Check out the Best Art Exhibitions to See This Month (January).
