This month’s selection of current and fourthcoming global exhibitions features art works that ask viewers to consider difficult questions about the relationship between style and substance and form and function. Indeed, all art highlights these relationships, but in some ways these exhibitions offer canvases for tough questions about the freedom of speech, representations of gender and sexuality, modernism, design, social and political policies, architecture and photography. Specifically, they ask us to consider how the codification of cultural moments and artifacts expresses how we we want our public conversations about them – and who we are as individuals, nations and cultures – to unfold. – Joanne Molina
