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

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.

Virginia Woolf: Art, Life and Vision

Virginia Woolf: Art, Life and Vision
Opens: 10/07/2014 Closes: 26/10/2014 National Portrait Gallery, London
Virginia Woolf was famously forthcoming (and often sharp-tongued) with opinions of others, but it is portraits of Woolf by her contemporaries that dominate the first gallery exhibition dedicated to her life. Likenesses by her Bloomsbury chums (including her sister, the painter Vanessa Bell), photographs by Man Ray and personal diaries and letters are among 100 works on display in an intimate exploration one of literature's brightest minds.

The Wind Tunnel Project
Opens: 09/07/2014 Closes: 20/07/2014 Farnborough, Hampshire
From WW1 fighter planes onward, Britain's aeronautical machines were once tested at special facilities in Farnborough. Closed since the 60s, the imposing buildings, relics of a recent-past science age, are open to the public for the first time and are hosting evocative works by artists James Bridle and Thor McIntyre-Burnie.

Ryan Gander: Make every show like it's your last
Opens: 03/07/2014 Closes: 14/09/2014 Manchester Art Gallery
The British artist Ryan Gander told us all about his belief in imagination and ambiguity during a recent National Trust project. This is a chance to see his ideas in action, such as an ad campaign he commissioned to promote a fake Government initiative titled ‘Imagineering' and his unusable escape routes into a fictional world of fun called Culturefield.

Allan Kaprow: Yard 1961/2014
Opens: 01/07/2014 Closes: 31/08/2014 The Hepworth Wakefield
The moment the artist Allan Kaprow decided Abstract Expressionist painting wasn't doing it for him any more is quite significant. He went on to coin Happenings, conflating art and life and influencing performance as an artform. Musician David Toop and other artists make works to complement this ‘reinvention' of Kaprow's big, interactive pile of tyres.

Barbara Kruger
Opens: 28/06/2014 Closes: 31/08/2014 Modern Art Oxford
Shouty black and white works made Barbara Kruger a key figure in late-70s postmodern feminism, alongside artists like Cindy Sherman. She now engulfs Modern Art Oxford with new and old work, confronting the viewer with large-scale slogans that provocatively examine consumerism and the gendered gaze.
