Four hotly anticipated exhibitions have kicked off in the United States. Held in conjunction with the “Picasso and Chicago” show at the Art Institute of Chicago, “The Artist and the Poet” brings together drawings and prints that shed light on the interaction between 20th-century artists and poets, Picasso and Max Jacob among them (until June 2).

New York’s Guggenheim Museum presents “Gutai: Splendid Playground,” the first U.S. retrospective of the postwar Japanese artists’ collective (until May 8).

At the Hammer Museum in L.A., “Llyn Foulkes” will exhibit over 140 of the artist’s macabre works (until May 19).

“Chagall: Beyond Color” at the Dallas Museum of Art explores Chagall’s relationship with space and volume by placing his paintings alongside his works in sculpture, ceramics, and costume (until May 26).
