Toronto

Tomorrow marks the end of Art Toronto, Canada's largest contemporary art fair. More than 100 galleries from Canada and abroad draw art lovers and gallery owners from around the world. This year saw the introduction of Focus Asia, an invitation-only section dedicated to contemporary Asian art, curated by Zheng Shengtian, managing editor of Yishu: Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art.

Paris

Slick in Paris, the annual modern art fair that brings together Europe's established galleries with younger, more cutting-edge artists and spaces, might have ended last week, but the second annual Slick in Brussels is set to descend on the Belgian capital in April next year. Slick has established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the European art world.

Moscow

Two members of Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot have been transferred to isolated prison camps. The move was especially harsh as the two had hoped to remain near their children in Moscow. Third member Yekaterina Samutsevich, 30, has been freed. Maria Alyokhina, 24, and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22 (both pictured), will be jailed until March 2014.

Chicago

The Windy City's 48th annual International Film Festival ended last Thursday. This year's World Cinema Spotlight was on the Middle East with the focus on up-and-coming filmmakers and breakthrough films from the rapidly changing region. Other highlights included France's Holy Motors and Mexican family drama After Lucia.

New York

The 32nd CMJ Music Marathon, which ended last week in New York, is an annual event like no other, with more than 1,200 performances by new musicians taking place in more than 80 venues across the city from clubs, theatres, ballrooms and even a cake shop. Highlights included Death Grips (pictured), Brooklyn's DIIV and Canadian rockers Metz.

Beijing

As tempting as it is to ignore Gangnam Style in the hope it will go away, Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei recently uploaded his own tribute to South Korean rapper Psy on YouTube, and everyone should watch it. Keep an eye out for the handcuffs, a symbol of the artist's constant state of semi-incarceration perhaps? Regardless, it's good to see Ai having fun.
