With so much to see, navigating it all can be tough. Here, we bring you our edit of the top 20 exhibitions.

Fabrica’s exhibition at Ace Hotel London is a study of ordinary, everyday items. Created by an international team of young product designers, graphic designers, architects and illustrators, and produced in Italy, these objects celebrate the beauty of daily rituals with simplicity and elegance.
13 – 21 September; Ace Hotel London Shoreditch, 100 Shoreditch High Street, E1 6JQ
