Looking back at 2017 - My Year in Art

It's that time of the year again, and as I have a bit of time on my hands and hundreds of digital photos to organise, I thought that list-making might make it more fun. The following list is not a 'best of' but an all-inclusive (read: boring) roll of the exhibitions I visited in 2017, whereas the photos are the ones worth sharing.
