While most public exhibition spaces have been closed for months through the coronavirus pandemic, art galleries and museums are finally opening their doors once more and welcoming visitors back.

This autumn numerous exhibition spaces are opening up. Yes, it will be different—a new regime of pre-booked tickets and one-way systems—but it feels as though the art world is getting back on its feet at long last.
