Art Exhibitions You'll Be Talking About - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/07/2015-art-exhibitions_n_6424402…
An art exhibition is traditionally the space in which art objects (in the most general sense) meet an audience.
The exhibit is universally understood to be for some temporary period unless, as is rarely true, it is stated to be a "permanent exhibition". In American English, they may be called "exhibit", "exposition" (the French word) or "show". In UK English, they are always called "exhibitions" or "shows", and an individual item in the show is an "exhibit".
Such expositions may present pictures, drawings, video, sound, installation, performance, interactive art, new media art or sculptures by individual artists, groups of artists or collections of a specific form of art.
