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.

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.

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.

Making Colour
Opens: 18/06/2014 Closes: 07/09/2014 National Gallery, London
Animals, vegetables and minerals have all provided pigment over the centuries. This colour-by-colour exhibition – reaching from the Renaissance to the Impressionists – examines the science in art's history: how colours were created and what that meant for artists. Eyes can be feasted on works by the likes of Botticelli, Van Dycke and Degas.
