Album review: Stefano Scodanibbio, Reinventions (ECM New Series)

Besides being the most inventive of double bassists, the late Stefano Scodanibbio was a sound-sculptor of unmatched imagination, as demonstrated in this radical programme of string quartet arrangements of Bach, Spanish guitar music and Mexican popular songs, performed with quicksilver grace by Quartetto Prometeo.

Artwalk: Peter Jensen, The Hepworth, Wakefield

From sculptor's studio to catwalk collection

Danish designer Peter Jensen finds his inspiration in the most unusual places. Each season he presents a muse for his collections – so far, as diverse a bunch as Jodie Foster, Cindy Sherman, disgraced ice-skater Tonya Harding and even his own Auntie Jytte. But for spring 2013 Jensen pays tribute to Barbara Hepworth, grande dame of British sculpture and friend of Picasso, Brancusi and Mondrian, in geometric circle prints and dulled navy mixed with chartreuse. Her artist's smock is reworked as a dress in simply but luxurious white georgette, while wide-brimmed hats by East London milliners Bernstock Speirs recall Möbius strips in their cutaway angles – a signature of Hepworth's work.

Art review: Tate Britain's self-reflexive new commission 'Phantom Ride' by Simon Starling is elegantly executed but too restricted

Public galleries make much of their artist commissions these days. The more traditional their collections, the more directors want to give a contemporary zing to their establishments by presenting a new work by a contemporary artist. But they are, by nature constrictive. You ask an artist to make a statement about the collection, the edifice or whatever, but too often it remains just that: a statement rooted to a place by the terms of the deal.

Amon Tobin, Hammersmith Apollo, London

Bad news: Amon Tobin's one-off set at Hammersmith Apollo was the last ever British outing for his ISAM project. This was version 2.0 of the live show, with music largely drawn from his 2011 album of the same name, and with truly ground-breaking visuals.

The Pike, By Lucy Hughes-Hallett

An illuminating study of the Italian poet, dandy and aesthete who inspired Fascism

Contemporary artist Mark Wallinger is pictured examining his sculpture, 'The White Horse', which was unveiled outside the British Council headquarters in London today, March 5th 2013. The sculpture is a life-size representation of a thoroughbred racehorse made of marble and resin.

Mark Wallinger hopes life-size white horse unveiled on The Mall will 're-kick-start' momentum for its 50m sister

Turner Prize winning artist Mark Wallinger believes his new life-sized sculpture of a racehorse may “re-kick-start” funding for a 50 metre version in Kent, which is currently stuck in Limbo.

Yinka Shonibare: class act with a dash of gallows humour

There's mischief in Yinka Shonibare's eyes when he says that he wants money and power. "Don't you? Isn't that what everyone wants," he chuckles. It's difficult to know if he's joking or not, and this interplay between seriousness and humour extends to his art.
