New this week 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
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
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.

Malevich

Malevich
Opens: 16/07/2014 Closes: 26/10/2014 Tate Modern, London.
As revolution simmered, Russia's Kazimir Malevich birthed a brand of modernism that did away with ‘the dead weight of the real world' (i.e. religion and politics): Suprematism. His 1915 Black Square infinitely altered how art is made and thought about; vivid colour and geometric forms were also key. This major career survey outlines it all, including a return to figuration under Stalin.

Phyllida Barlow - Gig
Opens: 15/07/2014 Closes: 02/11/2014 Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Bruton
Hauser & Wirth escape the city with a new rural arts centre located on an 18th-century farm. Its inaugural exhibition sees Phyllida Barlow (whose Tate Britain commission runs concurrently with this) endow the previously decrepit buildings with her colourful sculpture, drawing unlikely inspiration from the quintessentially English country fête.

Opens: 12/07/2014 Closes: 10/08/2014 The Approach, London
One of London's best champions of contemporary painting, The Approach, assembles a zeitgeisty group show. Although highly regarded UK painters including Phillip Allen, Sam Windett, Caragh Thuring and Stuart Cumberland feature, so does work by self-taught US ‘visionary' Forrest Bess, born in 1911 – signalling the show's lean toward back to basics visual expression apparent at many a major museum recently.
