Book now for these must-see 2023 exhibitions, from immersive David Hockney to incredible street art

When it comes to exhibitions, 2022 has been the visual gift that keeps on giving, with never-seen-before Van Gogh self-portraits at the Courtauld Gallery, an immersive Frida Kahlo experience and the Tate Modern's blockbuster Cézanne show. Luckily for art fans, 2023's line-up isn't looking too shabby either – and you can get your hands on tickets for three of the most exciting installations now. January sees David Hockney: Bigger & Closer (not smaller & further away) setting up home in the new four-storey Lightroom, featuring an immersive journey through his decade-spanning career via iconic paintings, rarely-seen pieces and new works – complete with narration by Hockney himself (25 January-23 April 2023; £25; 12 Lewis Cubitt Sq, London N1C).

Just announced today, Saatchi Gallery will be hijacked by 150 internationally renowned artists in one of the UK's biggest graffiti and street art exhibitions in February, as Beyond The Streets London takes over the entire 70,000sqft venue with an array of original art, photography, site-specific installations and archival fashion (17 February-9 May 2022; £15; King's Rd, London SW3). Fast-forward to March, and the Royal Academy will debut Souls Grown Deep Like The Rivers Black: Artists From The American South, showcasing 65 works which uniquely depict African American artistic traditions and methods of visual storytelling while not shying away from the less savoury moments of America's history (17 March-18 June 2023; £15; 6 Burlington Gdns, London, W1S). And just like that, 2022's exhibitions left the chat.

Tim Burton's Addams Family spin-off is creepy, spooky and incredibly watchable

Unsurprisingly for a TV series called Wednesday, Tim Burton's new eight-episode Netflix series offers up a new adventure for the world's original goth girl, Wednesday Addams. Jenna Ortega's eternally nihilistic anti-heroine leaves home for the first time and enrols at Nevermore Academy, a school for the extraordinarily gifted. There, she attempts to master her burgeoning psychic abilities, grapples with prophecies about apocalypses and tries to solve the mystery that embroiled her parents over two decades ago. Essentially, it's a thoroughly creepy tale involving our favourite Addams – which also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Gwendoline Christie and a cameo from Christina Ricci.

"I'm a diehard fan of 1993's Addams Family Values so I went into this with mixed feelings," says Stylist's digital editor-at-large Kayleigh Dray. "Although Wednesday is surrounded by Burtonian weirdness, it is still incredibly watchable. A blend of The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, it boasts a gorgeous spooky aesthetic, not to mention a powerhouse performance from Ortega – she positively oozes sarcasm and dark excellence, offering a brilliant Gen Z reimagining of this classic character. Throw in her chemistry with Emma Myers, who plays her impossibly sunny roommate, and an excellent season finale, and you have a surefire recipe for fun – even if there isn't as much time for character development as I'd prefer. I'd like a little more Wednesday with my Wednesday, but that's just me." On Netflix now
