A look at selected art exhibitions worldwide.

New York

Tomas Saraceno on the Roof: Cloud City The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Through Nov. 4.

Mr. Saraceno (born 1973) is the 15th artist to be given free rein to occupy the museum's roof garden. At the 2009 Venice Biennale, the Argentine artist's galaxies made of elastic ropes reflected his fascination with complex geometry and interconnectivity. These are at play again in his constellation of 16 modules in steel and plexiglass which the happy few can climb and walk through, weather permitting. Whatever Mr. Saraceno's architectural, technical or aesthetic achievement, the view on Central Park and New York City cannot be beat. www.metmuseum.org

Tokyo

Ilya Repin: Master Works From the State Tretyakov Gallery Bunkamura Museum. Through Oct. 8.

The Russian artist's most famous work, "Barge haulers on the Volga" (Russian Museum, St. Petersburg) is not in the show. Nevertheless, the Tretyakov's collection, the largest gathering of Repins, aptly illustrates how Repin (1844-1930) acquired his reputation. A realist painter, he exposed social disparities, stimulated Russian spirit with historical paintings, painted flattering portraits of cultural celebrities and depicted stirring family scenes. About 80 paintings and drawings are in the show. Below, a portrait of Repin's wife, "A Rest, 1882." www.bunkamura.co.jp

San Francisco

Man Ray | Lee Miller, Partners in Surrealism Legion of Honor. Through Oct. 14.

They were briefly lovers in the early 1930s, and their affair shaped their artistic collaboration. The interaction between Man Ray (1890-1976) and Lee Miller (1907-77) is illustrated by about 115 photographs, paintings, drawings and objects. The two Surrealist artists inspired each other, and collaborated on various projects, including the solarization process -- a thin black contour around the subject they photographed -- that they had chanced upon. Their works are complemented by paintings by their Paris friends Picasso, Ernst and Dora Maar, among others. http:// legionofhonor.famsf.org

Valencia, Spain

Frank Stella: Del Rigor al Barroquismo Institut Valencia d'Art Modern. Through Oct. 14.

Mr. Stella's versatility and inventiveness -- and the influence of Malevich and Mondrian -- lured him away from Abstract Expressionism. The show's itinerary includes his geometric compositions, his oddly shaped canvases, the painterly reliefs that the artist insisted hang on walls like canvases, and his more recent monumental steel sculptures. About 36 works figure in the show. www.ivam.es

Taipei

Dali: Mind of a Genius. National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. Through Sept. 30.

The well-traveled private collection of more than 100 works assembled over the past 40 years takes the viewer into Dali's realm of dreams, subconscious metaphors and symbols. …
