Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs

Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs
Opens: 17/04/2014 Closes: 07/09/2014 Tate Modern, London
The first chance in thirty years, and potentially the last according to Nick Serota (who co-curates) to see a large-scale show of Matisse's thrilling late works. What began as a means to create something in poor health became a new hybrid medium that was sculptural, painterly, chromatically brilliant and full of energy.

Chris Marker: A Grin Without a Cat

Chris Marker: A Grin Without a Cat
Opens: 16/04/2014 Closes: 22/06/2014 Whitechapel Gallery, London
 

Widely credited with inventing the essay film, Marker brilliantly treads the line between documentary and personal reflection. This long overdue retrospective screens seminal sci-fi short La Jetée - with an alternative intro - and his hypnotic meditation on memory, Sans Soleil. Also catch photos, texts and a guided tour of Marker's Second Life museum ... led by his cat.

Ursula von Rydingsvard

Ursula von Rydingsvard
Opens: 05/04/2014 Closes: 04/01/2015 Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Despite developing a severe allergy to it over her forty-year career, cedar wood is still integral to Ursula von Rydingsvard and you can expect to see considerable amounts of it installed at YSP. Widely celebrated in the US, von Rydingsvard's monumental works have not had a large-scale outing this side of the pond until now.

Tate Britain Commission 2014: Phyllida Barlow

Tate Britain Commission 2014: Phyllida Barlow
Opens: 31/03/2014 Closes: 19/10/2014 Tate Britain, London
Last year’s commission saw Simon Starling ‘reinstall’ (albeit by CGI) previous works shown in Tate Britain’s Duveen Galleries  – expect something much more vast this year, as British sculptor Phyllida Barlow delivers her response to the cavernous space. Barlow has toyed with traditional sculpting scales and materials for 40 years and this, her largest work in London to date, is sure to be monumental.

Science Fiction: New Death

Science Fiction: New Death
Opens: 27/03/2014 Closes: 22/06/2014 FACT, Liverpool
One of the most intellectually enjoyable current fiction writers, China Miéville, lends a hand to this politically aware group show: he provides ‘prompting’ texts, a new short and the script for a film on show.  The increasing sci-fi-ness of reality is the topic, with pieces from frenetic US video artist Ryan Trecartin and such items as Mushroom Death Suits and anti facial recognition software.

Peter Doig: Early Works

Peter Doig: Early Works
Opens: 20/03/2014 Closes: 31/05/2014 Michael Werner, London
This show is a surprise: firstly, it's a look back at student work and secondly, the work is pretty great. It showcases the burgeoning talent of one of the most expensive living painters in the world, and rather than his trademark luxuriant landscapes, tackles cowboys, mythology, Romans, skinheads, Burger King and crazed cityscapes.

Vikings: life and legend

Vikings: life and legend
Opens: 06/03/2014 Closes: 22/06/2014 Britsh Museum, London
What survives of a 37-metre-long Danish Viking warship features in a landmark show at the BM. The Vikings' seafaring prowess meant remarkable reach when it came to (often violent) encounters with other cultures, which this show underscores with treasures from four continents, many recently discovered.

Ruin Lust

Ruin Lust
Opens: 04/03/2014 Closes: 18/05/2014 Tate Britain, London
The 18th century saw in a cult of the ruin, via Romantics like JMW Turner. In the 21st century, crumbling post-industrial edifices seem to hold their own sway over our imaginations. This historical survery covers it all, with John Martin's overblown cataclysms and contemporary riffs on the picturesque.
