Each month, AnOther's editors give their recommendations for the coming month
LA, 2011 by Cat Stevens © Cat Stevens A Year in Development at Labyrinth Photographic, featuring Emilie Lindsten – until March 22
For the second year running, Labyrinth Photographic printing house are holding an exhibition showcasing the work of over 70 of their most talented photographer clients, in homage to the analogue printing process. This year's show includes the work of AnOther contributor Emilie Lindsten, whose nature inspired, washed-out photographs, at times enhanced with abstracting paintwork, merge a sense of modernity with a haunting nostalgia.
Oz: The Great And Powerful Costumes at Selfridges – from March 1
Today, Selfridges unveils a new window display featuring a number of costumes from the much-anticipated Oz prequel – including that of Glinda the good witch, played by AnOther cover star Michelle Williams – created by master costume designers Gary Jones and Michael Kutsche. More costumes, props and even yellow bricks from the set can be viewed in-store, alongside an Oz-inspired shoe collection by Nicholas Kirkwood, exclusive to Selfridges.
Luftbobler by Dinos Chapman
This month sees the launch of the eldest Chapman Brother's debut album, a subversive and witty form of electronic "Schlampge Musik" recorded in his east London basement. Insomnia, horror films and boredom are cited by Chapman as the driving force behind the 13-track record, which is the culmination of ten years of soundscape experimentation.
Saint Laurent at DSM and & Other Stories, Regent Street
Two new store openings are set to tantilise shoppers this month: the brand new Saint Laurent space at Dover Street Market, showcasing men and women's ready-to-wear and accessories, and with concept architecture and design by polymath creative director Hedi Slimane; and the first UK store from & Other Stories – the sophisticated sister brand of H&M – which opens March 8, along with their online store Stories.com.
Mat Collishaw: This Is Not an Exit – until March 30
Renowned YBA artist Mat Collishaw has returned with a new exhibition of large-scale oil paintings at the Blain|Southern gallery. At first glance abstract and grid-like, the eye-catching images in fact depict folded scraps of luxury goods advertisments from magazines. But typical of Collishaw's multi-layered approach and meditations on illusion and reality, an even closer look reveals the paper's true function. The fragments form origami-like "wraps", used by drug-dealers to package cocaine, and complete with white traces of the narcotic – a wry comment on the all devouring nature of capitalism.
Affecting Perception - until March 31
A new exhibition in Oxford this month explores art, neurological disease, creativity and the neural basis of visual perception, through the works of artists who suffer from these conditions and pieces inspired by developments in neuroscience. Created by the AXNS Collective, the project is the brainchild of recent graduates who span the scientific, medical and artistic spectrums, who have worked together to fashion an experience as visually beautiful as it is enlightening and thought provoking.
M/MANIFESTATION – March 8 - April 28
The first in a series of events conceived to coincide with the US release of the wonderful M/M (Paris) monograph, M/MANIFESTATION at the Art Center College of Design, Pasedena, will feature more than a hundered of the celebrated design duo's posters. Double Agent, one of their latest posters, will form a giant backdrop to the works, covering the space from floor to ceiling. This unique display approach is designed as a "metaphoric representation" of M/M (Paris)'s distinctive, multi-dimensional practice.
Walk On: 40 years of Art Walking – March 27 - May 6
Just as spring and the great outdoors beckon, the act of walking forms the basis of an upcoming exhibition at London's PM gallery, which traces a journey through art inspired by travels on foot. It considers the fascinating extent to which important artworks over the past forty years have begun with perambulation, and includes the work of Marina Abramovic, Mike Collier and Bruce Nauman.
