From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia

From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia
Opens: 01/11/2014 Closes: 08/03/2015 Dulwich Picture Gallery, London
Peter Doig has compared her to Van Gogh, but you may never have heard of Emily Carr, one of Canada's best-known painters. Working in the early 20th century and bringing a touch of Post-Impressionism to the Pacific north west, she was remarkable for her often solitary journeys to indigenous settlements, whose culture she was bent on capturing in paint.

Raphael Hefti
Opens: 18/10/2014 Closes: 04/01/2015 Nottingham Contemporary
Originally trained as an engineer, this Swiss artist is fascinated in the striking results of laboratory mistakes and experiments. Flammable plant spores on photosensitive paper and rivers of molten lava are used as materials; scientists and dogs count among his collaborators. See a selection of his mimimal, poetic and frequently cosmic works in Nottingham.

Mirrorcity: London artists on fiction and reality

Mirrorcity: London artists on fiction and reality
Opens: 14/10/2014 Closes: 04/01/2015 Hayward Gallery, London
Assessing the digital in our lives and informed by JG Ballard, this group show promises a lot, not least because of the calibre of artists involved. All London based, they include mercurial film artist Lindsay Seers, Turner winner Laure Prouvost and painter Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, all experts in the emotional and the uneasy as much as the cerebral. Zietgeisty collective Lucky PDF and performance/theatre artist Tim Etchells are also on board.

Sigmar Polke: Alibis

Sigmar Polke: Alibis
Opens: 09/10/2014 Closes: 08/02/2015 Tate Modern, London.
Bubble wrap, soot and arsenic were all art materials for Sigmar Polke, the oddball in a triumvirate of major postwar German artists along with Richter and Kiefer. His output veered from cartoon dots, 'capitalist realism' and trippy videos from sojourns in the Middle East to ghosts of concentration camps painted onto kitschy wallpaper. Worth trying to get your head around.

Tracey Emin - The Last Great Adventure is You

Tracey Emin - The Last Great Adventure is You
Opens: 08/10/2014 Closes: 16/11/2014 White Cube Bermondsey
Enfant terrible Tracey Emin is well on her way to grande dame. This first major show at her gallery, White Cube, for five years should shore up the transition. Still finding traction in the self, and a new mastery of the nude, the show presents Emin's paintings, embroideries, bronzes, relief sculptures and poetic, scribbly neons. Responses so far have noted its traditionalism.

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
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.
