The year’s not over yet, and there’s still plenty of exhibitions up through 2017 that warrant your attention. Over in picturesque Zürich, the city’s robust gallery scene is offering up some much-needed distraction in the form of art. Skip the slopes for a day and peruse some shows, featuring a range of talent that includes Douglas Gordon, Zhang Xiaogang, and Robert Indiana, to name a few. To make your itinerary a breeze, we’ve gathered together a list of recommendations so you won’t have to parse gallery listings and get to just focus on looking. Hurry and head out there—think how bummed you’ll be if you miss the unmissable, and look out for some of these shows that are closing really soon.
