New York

The Bolshoi Ballet is famous, but St Petersburg's Bolshoi Puppet Theatre is less well known. Hopefully that will change after the puppeteers' three-day run, which ended yesterday, at the Baryshnikov Arts Centre in New York. The company performed a puppet adaptation of Tolstoy's short story Kholstomer: The Story of a Horse.

Paris

Austrian artist Markus Schinwald, best known for taking classic paintings and modifying them with a bondage sensibility, is now previewing a project he is working on for next summer at the CAPC Museum of Contemporary Art in Bordeaux. Described as an "infernal machine theatre", the show runs until January 7 at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

Beijing

The Beijing Music Festival has been around for 15 years, but perhaps the organisers feel the time has come to inject it with some youth. This year, the festival has expanded its usual offering of classical music to include pop - both Western and Chinese - and the event has been moved to trendy bar district Sanlitun. Well, not too youthful: Michael Bolton (pictured) is headlining. The festival ends on November 2.

Sao Paulo

Brazilian octogenarian and kinetic art pioneer Abraham Palatnik is showing four never-before-seen works a the Nara Roesler Gallery in Sao Paulo. They are part of a 60-year retrospective that features pieces from the artist's early kinechromatic devices to his more recent paperboard paintings. The show closes on November 24.

Bologna

"You'll Never Be the Same", an exhibition by US artist John Copeland, opened at the Marabini Gallery in Bologna, Italy, last week. For his new show, Copeland, who is best known for his paintings and drawings, presents a series of portraits depicting bikers, nudes and a smattering of evocative still-lifes. The event ends on December 21.

Prague

The 7th TINA B. Contemporary Art Festival is on now in the Czech capital. This year's encouraging theme is "Art and Happiness". The organisers' aim is to "get the inhabitants and tourists of Prague in a positive mood" and artists have specific instructions to select work that evokes feelings of happiness in the festival attendants. The festival, sadly, ends on October 31.
