(Nov. 15-Jan. 16) MASTERWORKS SIDE BY SIDE Northwest Washington's Phillips Collection is doing its best to provide some arresting juxtapositions in Side by Side. The collection's own modernist masterworks are presented alongside works on loan from Oberlin College's Allen Memorial Art Museum that sample from a range of periods and countries. It's a way of seeing how art history has unfolded as a conversation across time and culture. Runs through mid-January.

(Nov. 15) KILLADELPHIA And Killadelphia: Mixtape of a City is a one-man show that sheds light on the Philadelphia's inmates, some of whom are employed to beautify the city while serving out life sentences.
