Here's my annual round up of the best exhibitions of 2012. These are the moments when my stomach flipped, brain blew and I got all excited. The reason why I refuse to say all art is rubbish.
The list below of course does not include my hat trick of exhibitions this year - The Dark Cube at the Palais de Tokyo, E-Vapor-8 at 319 Scholes and Responsive Eyes at Jacob's Island - though of course they were a big focus for me...
Documenta (for so many reasons)
2 Bronze at the Royal Academy of Arts London
3 Ghosts in the Machine at the New Museum
4 Les Maitres du Desordre at Musee Quai Branly
5 Antoine Catala at 47 Canal Street
Ed Atkins at Chisenhale
7 Bruce Lacey at Camden Arts Centre
8 One on One at KW Berlin (especially for Jeremy Shaw's incredible hypnotic video installation)
9 Jeremy Deller at Hayward Gallery
10 The Historical Box at Hauser and Wirth
