Michael Fullerton, Meaning Inc, Glasgow Print Studio, Glasgow
Glasgow artist Michael Fullerton’s show as part of Generation’s celebration of 25 years of Scottish art is packed with new work and brimming with ideas. Through paintings, prints and installation, Fullerton grapples with the big questions of communication and artistic ownership in the information age. Included are portraits of file-sharing ‘entrepreneur’ Kim Dotcom, Black Panther propagandist Emory Douglas, MGM founder Samuel Godwyn and current governor of Barlinnie Prison, Glasgow. Until 17 August, www.gpsart.co.uk

Dennis Hopper, Royal Academy of Arts, London
In the four years since his death, Dennis Hopper’s reputation as a photographer has steadily increased. Well known for his acting roles in Easy RiderBlue Velvet and Apocalypse Now, the 400 images here illustrate Hopper’s skills behind the lens, powerfully capturing American culture and life in the 1960s – a decade of progress, violence and enormous upheaval. Until 19 October, www.royalacademy.org.uk

Bridget Riley, David Zwirner, London
Spanning paintings and studies from 1961 to the present day, this retrospective takes place across all three floors of the gallery and culminates with Bridget Riley’s most recent work, including a number of drawings that document her working processes. The show marks the biggest survey of Riley’s work in the UK since her 2003 Tate Britain exhibtion. Until 25 July, www.davidzwirner.com  

Stone and Water, The Grand Pavillion, Matlock Bath
The Grand Pavillion is the unique setting for this show of artists’ responses to the town’s spooky Edwardian architecture. Olivia Punnett’s prints are particularly noteworthy; she used old photographs of the local petrifying wells, then traced, collected and printed them again using Cyanotype print, a form of old blue printing. Spooky indeed. Until 27 July, www.thegrandpavilion.co.uk
