For March's Artist of the Month we've selected Peter Hanmer. We talk to him about his allegorical, sculptural installations that question reality and conventional truth.

On 26 April 2019 we'll be hosting Social Works?: Live in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University. The event will take the form of a social art festival with artist-run ‘stalls’—and a ‘live publication’ process, forming the basis of Social Works? Journal, vol. 2. We're looking for artists to submit proposals for a 'stall' at the event for a fee of £350 (deadline: 15 March) and you can also register to attend - it's free!

We recently filmed an interview with Lisa Selby about her exhibition 'Bang Up' at OUTPOST Gallery in Norwich. Central to this exhibition is an intimate film, a love story, focusing on her relationship with Elliot - who is currently serving time in prison and recovering from heroin addiction.

Axis Directory member Paul Digby tells us about his new body of work in drawing and figurative sculpture which emerged from a three year collaboration with the emergency services.

Our Beyond the Gallery Cohort commission winners 'Get It Done' are taking over Manchester School of Art on 7 March and holding a Soapbox event. 'Get It Done' are a DIY arts collective and community organisation based in Manchester, who provide platforms for young and disadvantaged artists, encourage creativity and work with underserved communities.

In our monthly What's On Guide we share events from our Axis Directory members that are happening in March.
