The opening months of the year have been defined by the spread of the novel 2019 coronavirus from its origin point in Wuhan, China, to a growing number of cities and countries around the globe. Public-health concerns have led officials and event organizers to modify, delay, or completely shutter large gatherings of all kinds, from professional sporting events and concerts, to university classes and professional conferences.

And perhaps no sector of the world economy to date has had to be more flexible than the art industry—with its for-profit and nonprofit sides equally affected.

As a reference guide, below is a comprehensive list of every art-related event that has either been canceled or postponed due to concerns about the virus’s spread. You will also find information on related museum and gallery closures and a sampling of key upcoming events still proceeding as planned.

The latest developments are listed at the top of each category. We will continuously update the list if and when organizers announce additional cancelations, postponements, or other modifications.

Note: As of 6:00 p.m. EST on Monday, March 16, closures and postponements have grown so widespread that Artnet News will only update the list below to capture significant, independently newsworthy changes to the art-world calendar, such as the delay of major art fairs.
