RECOMMENDED: our full guide to exhibitions in London
Kneebone's sculpture '399 Days' – originally shown at White Cube in 2014 – is a towering colossus made of porcelain tiles and writhing limbs, and is going to look pretty damn spectacular amongst the objects of Gallery 50a at the V&A. Three other sculptures will also be presented in the Hintze Sculpture Galleries in Gallery 21.
A showcase of award-winning advances in design and tech in the field of health and medicine. Expect bold ideas and radical approachs – previous winners have included everything from digital therapy platforms to sensors that track the filling of colostomy bags.
This exhibition at the brand-new Migration Museum focuses on the migrants of the twenty-first century, whose personal stories often go unheard over the noise of tabloid headlines and bitter debate. Particular focus will be on the Calais 'jungle', the refugee camp that was cleared in October 2016.
Fifty years since their first single, Arnold Layne, the V&A is hosting a retrospective of those psychedelic pioneers, the Floyd. Set and construction pieces from The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall join instruments, designs, lyrics and prints - and, yes, a laser show. Wish You Were Here?
An exhibition that aims to highlight the environmental issues that the rivers and waterways of South Asia face right now and in the years to come ('pani' being the widely-used word for water). Artist Daksha Patel will be showing a number of colourful maps and terracotta ceramics to explore the relationships between the region's people and their water.
California: is there any other place in the world as synonymous with hedonistic glamour and effortless cool? But what often gets overlooked among the praises heaped on the Golden State is its rich design history. This show should put paid to that, looking at 50 years of innovation – from LSD in the countercultural '60s to the tech revolution of Silicone Valley.
An overview of the acclaimed American fashion designer, who shot to fame in the early '90s and has been captivating us all ever since. Over 100 items from Sui's archive will go on display, exploring her evolving designs, which touch upon punk, rock 'n' roll and surfer cool styles.
Is there any truer path into the minds and hearts of anyone than the pages of their diary? This show amasses diaries, journals and almanacs from 1,700BC through to the present day, and also looks to what the future holds in the era of blogs, vlogs and recording apps.
Cristóbal Balenciaga all but reinvented haute couture in the 1950s, and has earned a place among the giants of twentieth-century fashion. This exhibition, marking the hundredth anniversary of the opening of his San Sebastian fashion house, will chart the Spanish designer's rise through garments, hats, drawings, photographs and film.
Original concept art and models from Godzilla, Stargate and Dark City, original manuscripts by Jules Verne, new commissions and music, film and contemporary art come together in this huge summer exhibition capturing sci-fi as we know it. Objects from beloved films, including pieces from the Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation, tell the story of how the genre went mainstream, and how the sci-fi imagination has changed for the 21st century.
We all know about Captain Scott and his ill-fated expedition into the Antarctic. But who remembers John Franklin and the voyage into the North-West Passage of the Arctic? Both ships he took there went missing, and in the following years, dark stories of scurvy and cannibalism arrived in Britain. This exhibition delves into what really happened to Franklin and his crew in the freezing Arctic wastes.
An exhibition about industrially produced sheet wood might not exactly sound enthralling. But never underestimate the V&A's ability to take the most humdrum of subjects and bring it to life. This exhibition will cast a look at plywood's revolutionary use within furniture, aircraft and architecture, and the role it currently plays in digital design.

Whatever the day, week or season, there's always an exciting show to delve into, on subjects as varied as history, fashion, art and the natural world.
Lady Chastity's Reserve, Hackney
This marvellously silly immersive team puzzle (a sort of cross between an escape game and the 'Mumsy' challenge in 'The Crystal Maze') has already spooked and amused many a team at its original venue in Battersea, but will now be challenging the people of Hackney from a dark corner of the People's Park Tavern. It's from the Handmade Mysteries team that does this kind of thing at venues across London. They know what they're doing. Expect plenty of surreal slants to challenges that can be pretty, well, challenging, and don't be surprised to be surprised either - we're told the immersive elements can be pretty interesting. They promise to let you out - or help you out - if you get really stuck but still, it might be best to bring some brains and leave your dumbass friends out of it.
Venue says: “Venture through an hour of hilarious clue-solving as you and your team attempt to win Chastity's fabled aphrodisiac wine.”
