Andrew Graham-Dixon looks back over the year in art, with highlights including a show by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and pop star Florence Welch picking out the work in the National Gallery that inspires her. Also featured is Michael Smith's nocturnal hike up to Arthur's Seat with hundreds of runners wearing specially designed suits, creating a mass act of light and colour above Edinburgh. Plus, a selection from this summer's London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, including a rooftop sculpture recreating the final scene of The Italian Job and an eyebrow-raising underwater wheelchair performance.
