New this week Lizzie Fitch/Ryan Trecartin
Opens: 02/10/2014 Closes: 21/12/2014 Zabludowicz Collection, London
Whatever form of dial or scale might possibly relate to the work Ryan Trecartin makes, the ‘high' setting doesn't quite do it. Fitting into a trend for mad, homemade performance work, Trecartin focuses on digital youth culture in amped-up, YouTube semi-parodies. Refreshingly, he's less sniffy about life lived through technology than fascinated by it. A special theatre environment made with Lizzie Fitch extends the films' visual world.

Turner Prize 2014

New this week Turner Prize 2014
Opens: 30/09/2014 Closes: 04/01/2015 Tate Britain, London

The Turner Prize is 30 this year, but has been a responsible young adult for a few years now, offering thoughtful rather than incendiary snapshots of contemporary British art. The four under-50s to get the nod this time are: Duncan Campbell, for a filmic provocation about commodity culture; installation artist Ciara Philips who looks at craft and community; lyrical film artist James Richards and the sound and new media artist Tris Vonna-Michell.

Anselm Kiefer
Opens: 27/09/2014 Closes: 14/12/2014 Royal Academy, London
As fellow postwar German painter Georg Baselitz has a London moment, Kiefer's largest UK retrospective is announced. It covers 40 years, with early watercolours and work about the loaded image of Templehof airport demonstrating his typically unflinching take on European history. As well vast, elemental paintings, his installations also feature, one of them in the RA courtyard.

Constable: The Making of a Master
Opens: 20/09/2014 Closes: 11/01/2015 The V&A, London
Not many artists can be said to have shaped the way we think about British landscape as much as Constable. This sets out to shed new light on how the great painter became so prominent, showing the masterpieces that influenced him alongside his own. Pictures such as his iconic Haywain will also be joined by preliminary sketches of rural England.

The Influence of Furniture on Love

The Influence of Furniture on Love
Opens: 14/09/2014 Closes: 02/11/2014 Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge
The emotional and psychic impact of domestic interiors inspires this group show, sparked by a John Maynard Keynes essay and set in a 17th-century farmhouse. Turner Prize alumni Elizabeth Price and Laure Prouvost seem perfect candidates for participants – especially given the latter's creepy tea party piece, Wantee. Modern-day Omega Group types, The Grantchester Pottery also contribute.

Late Turner: Painting Set Free

Late Turner: Painting Set Free
Opens: 10/09/2014 Closes: 25/01/2015 Tate Britain, London
As with many pioneers, JMW Turner faced a rather hostile response to his remarkable innovations. Loose, expressive and frequently spectacular, the apex of his career is now considered pivotal in the opening out of possibilities for painting in the 19th century. A burning House of Lords, tumultuous oceans and mythical scenes are all here.

Disobedient Objects

Disobedient Objects
Opens: 26/07/2014 Closes: 01/02/2015 The V&A, London
The dissemblers behind the art and design pieces in this show include barricade designers and graffiti-writing robots; their products are tools of protest and activism. Spanning the late-70s to now and many countries, there is much ingenuity at play, particularly in the hijacking of benign technology to make a point.

Primrose: Russian Colour Photography
Opens: 25/07/2014 Closes: 19/10/2014 The Photographers' Gallery, London
After its entrance in the 1860s, the history of colour photography in Russia is traced, through the days of the Tsars and the Soviet years. Don't miss a soft-focus Stalin lying in state, works by constructivist luminary Rodchenko and some early images you can't help feeling Wes Anderson might enjoy.
