A look at selected arts events worldwide.

Shanghai

Myth/History II: The Shanghai Galaxy Yuz Museum, Shanghai. Through July 12.

This new museum, a center for contemporary Asian art housed partly in a former airplane hangar, opened last year with the inaugural exhibition "Myth/History." This follow-up exhibition brings together a new crop of works by contemporary artists from Asia and beyond. One section focuses on works that chart the development of Shanghai's contemporary art scene, while another (in the museum's airy central gallery) focuses on huge eye-catching contemporary work from across the world. Works on view include a room full of laser beams arranged to evoke a prison cell by the artist Li Hui, and a larger-than-life-size fossil skeleton by the artist Maurizio Cattelan. yuzmshanghai.org

Rabat, Morocco

Mawazine Festival des Rhythmes du Monde Various venues. Through June 6.

Music from Morocco, sub-Saharan Africa and the international pop circuit will appear at this festival of mostly free concerts across the Moroccan capital. Each night of the festival, major pop acts like Sting, above, Pharrell Williams, Sean Paul and Maroon 5 will perform. Most of the concerts, though, feature hitmakers from Morocco and across the Middle East. A number of artists mix a variety of musical traditions -- like Temenik Electric, which crosses electronica with acoustic music traditions from North Africa. festivalmawazine.ma

Tokyo

Cy Twombly: Fifty Years of Works on Paper Hara Museum of Contemporary Art. Through Aug. 30.

The American visual artist Cy Twombly (1928-2011) bucked many of the artistic trends of his day: He largely ignored the brightly colored, brand-conscious artwork of his pop art contemporaries, and moved to Italy as most of his American contemporaries focused on building careers in New York. This exhibition, which has traveled to several major museums worldwide, brings together around 70 of his playful, spare paintings, prints and drawings, in the distinctive childlike aesthetic that he made his trademark. It is the first major retrospective of his work held in Japan. haramuseum.or.jp

Bergen, Norway

Bergen International Festival Various venues. Through June 10.

This weekend, the world-famous electronica group Royksopp and the Norwegian actors Thorbjorn Harr and Jan Gunnar Roise will stage "Kafka Feat. Royksopp," a new performance piece that mixes the electronic group's sounds with lighter extracts from the work of the existential writer. The piece is one of several eclectic works that will appear in this festival, which also brings symphony concerts, dance and public outdoor spectacles to this otherwise-sleepy seaside town on the country's west coast. Above, an image from the Berlin choreographer and director Sasha Waltz's "Orfeo," a dance-heavy take on Monteverdi's opera. fib.no
