'A new vision for Tate Modern'

Described by the Tate Modern as just that, a new building will be added at the south of the existing gallery, creating more space for collections, performance and installation art.

The rebuild is set to ''redefine the museum for the twenty first century, integrating learning, display and social functions.''

Alex Katz at the Met

Alex Katz at the Met has been on show since October, but the popularity of it proves it will still be a must-see in 2016.

As one of modern America's most acclaimed artists, the show explores Katz's career and includes drawings, prints, and paintings. The works were acquired through Glenn Fuhrman, Leonard A. Lauder, and Katz himself, with 8 in total in the exhibition, including two cutouts, the innovative artistic device that Katz pioneered in the late 1950s; a haunting cityscape; several portraits of Ada, Katz's wife and long-time muse; and portraits of luminaries from Katz's own social and artistic circles.
