Here, we highlight the 49 gallery shows (from a 20th-century mystic and abstract painter to a Facebook diarist–painter–photographer) and museum exhibitions (including disruptive surveys, post-war artist retrospectives, and a massive show featuring more than 60 black artists) we’re most excited to see this fall, and how long they’re on view.

New York University’s latest photography exhibit showcased at Grey Art Gallery, titled NeoRealismo: The New Image in Italy, 1932-1960, features a collection of 174 images from over 60 Italian photographers. As the title references, the photographs are from Italy before, during, and after World War II. The concept of neorealism was a cinematic and literary movement that showed the disastrous postwar conditions, helping inspire this collection.

How should photography respond to Fascism and its aftermath? An ambitious exhibition, which opened September 6 at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery and Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, features images made by 60 Italian photographers in the period from the height of Mussolini’s rule through Italy’s post-war economic boom. Curated by Enrica Viganò, “NeoRealismo: The New Image in Italy, 1932-1960” has already toured Europe.
