Phyllida Barlow: Cul De Sac Now until 10 Jun – Royal Academy of Arts www.royalacademy.org.uk Housed across three rooms, these new sculptures have one thing in common: they’re massive!

Lee Krasner: Living Colour Now until 01 Sep – Barbican Centre www.barbican.org.uk As the title suggests, one reason for buying a ticket is to check out Krasner's vivid, large-scale canvases that explode in fireworks of colour. But that’s not all as you'll also be able to see her superb charcoal drawings and some early self-portraits.

Marking the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, this exhibition will bring together more than 200 of the Renaissance master's greatest drawings in the Royal Collection, forming the largest exhibition of his work in over 65 years.
