Take a look at these fall exhibitions with two looks at landscapes.
The McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College is breaking ground on its fall exhibitions with two looks at landscapes. First up, Nature’s Mirror: Reality and Symbol in Belgian Landscape chronologically traces the birth of the art form from the Middle Ages through the early 20th century with the help of professor Jeffrey Howe. He’ll be on hand for a walk through the Daley Family Gallery on Sept. 24 to chat about the 120 rarely seen works from the likes of Antwerp printmaker Hieronymus Cock, School of Tervuren realists and symbolist painter Léon Spilliaert (whose Trunks of Beech Trees in Spring, 1945 is seen above). Elsewhere, professor Alston Conley paints the Maine and Massachusetts skies with collage techniques a la Matisse. Dial into these landlines at the McMullen Museum, where Nature’s Mirror and New England Sky are on display through Dec. 10. / Sarah Hagman

Aug. 11 brings a bout for the ages when the Museum of Fine Arts unveils Showdown! Kuniyoshi vs. Kunisada. The new exhibit pits two 19th-century Japanese woodblock artists—both students of the ukiyo-e print powerhouse Utagawa school—against each other, displaying 100 works in color-coded frames: black ash for Kuniyoshi, cherry for Kunisada (whose 1820s print The In-demand Type is pictured here). See how each master tackled the same subject matter, from cheeky theater actor portraits to epic sumo battle renderings, in the Lois B. and Michael K. Torf Gallery, where the rivals go head-to-head through Dec. 10. / Sarah Hagman

Experience the future in a digital sensory experience ‘XYZT: A Journey in 4 Dimensions’ at Peabody Essex Museum through April 22.
Art, math and science collide in a digital sensory experience at XYZT: A Journey in 4 Dimensions. Created by French artists and computer scientists Adrien Mondot and Claire Bardainne, this interactive exhibit features nature-inspired holographic landscapes that imagine four dimensions: horizontal (X), vertical (Y), depth (Z) and time (T). Blur the line between physical and virtual as you step into a darkened gallery and manipulate beams of light with nothing more than the movement of your body. Experience the future at Peabody Essex Museum through April 22. / Brenna Donovan
