It's all happening stateside when it comes to visual arts shows, from what I can see on my radar right now...

Above: El Anatsui's exhibition, ASI, opened on November 1st in New York and displays until December 22nd... see info

Left: Beyond the River is an exhibition of artworks by the artist Victor Ehikhamenor. It opens on November 30 @ The Embassy of Grenada, 1701 New Hampshire Ave, NW, Washington DC. The exhibition is on display till December 29. For more information on the artist, visit: Sozaboy.

Right: Look away from the illustration now... or jokes apart, visit this vital show if you're in Brooklyn NY. Ghariokwu Lemi provided the visual images to Fela Anikulapo-Kuti's epoch making records, designing 26 of his album covers. It is political art at its most uncompromising and thought-provoking. In this exhibition, Political Cartoons from Nigeria, Lemi headlines a display of his works, as well as others by Comfort Jacobs and Lordwealth Ololade. The show opened on November 10 and is on until December 17. It's @ SOUTHFIRST, 60 N6th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
