    • The School of Nice exhibition

      French May and Musée d’Art moderne et contemporain de Nice (MAMAC)

      Hong Kong City Hall

      In close partnership with Le French May, a leading cultural festival in Asia, and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nice (MAMAC), Manifesto Expo was the driving force behind the exhibition of Nice’s avant-garde artists at Hong Kong’s City Hall in May and June 2018.Curated by Hélène Guénin, the exhibition presented some of the great masterpieces from the museum’s collection, including Yves Klein’s large Anthropométrie [Anthropometry] (ANT 84) from 1960 and artwork by César, Arman, Martial Raysse, Niki de Saint Phalle, Bernar Venet and Ben. Staged by the PEAKS architectural agency, the visitor path was particularly captivating. Manifesto Expo coordinated the international logistics and managed contract negotiations.

    • Abdelkader Benchamma

      Sogelym Dixence

      Prime Minister’s Office (Paris)

      At Sogelym Dixence’s invitation, Manifesto put together and managed an artistic consultation for a new building for the Prime Minister’s Office, the Commissioner for Human Rights and the CNIL, the French data protection body (Ilôt Fontenoy in Paris).The panel of judges, headed by Jacques Toubon (former Minister of Culture), chose the mural painting by the artist Abdelkader Benchamma (a graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and winner of the 2015 Drawing Now award); Manifesto was responsible for its production in 2017. The work was developed on the underside of the walkway connecting the Ségur and Fontenoy buildings. It integrates the space while discreetly altering it, providing movement and depth. Whether it’s seen as a whirlwind, a vortex, cosmogonic matter or an attempt to make the invisible visible, this “Cartographie des évènements” [Event map] engages the public and invites the viewer to let his or her mind wander, inspired by the relationship between the artwork’s minute details and the gigantic size of the painting as a whole. The graphic undulating design is reminiscent of a stylized wave, a nod to the building’s history and architecture.

    • Olympic Village

      Solideo

      Saint-Ouen, Saint-Denis

      SOLIDEO (the Paris 2024 Olympic Games Delivery Authority) has chosen Manifesto, partnered with curator Gaël Charbau, to be responsible for the artistic direction of the Olympic and Paralympic Village in Saint-Denis and Saint-Ouen. SOLIDEO is responsible for financing, supervising and delivering the infrastructure and urban development operations for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Designing the Athletes’ Village is a project of exceptional scope. Heritage is at the heart of the project: the aim is to create a neighborhood in which the Games will be both a significant milestone and a one-off event. The Village will showcase French expertise and the country’s focus on social responsibility, inclusivity and sustainability. The artistic aspects of this Village will be vital. Following a public consultation, SOLIDEO appointed Manifesto, partnered with curator Gaël Charbau (Artistic Director of Nuit Blanche 2018) and Bollinger + Grohmann (structural engineering consultancy), for its artistic direction. Our first task is to look to the future: how can art and artists contribute to the creation of a desirable city in 2050? We will develop an artistic program for the new neighborhood, working with public institutions and private real estate operators. This new project further strengthens our commitment to transforming cities through art.

    • Elliott Causse & Kenia Almaraz Murillo

      Groupe UGC

      UGC Les Halles (Paris)

      In view of the Groupe UGC’s ongoing creative commitment, the group asked Manifesto to envision and produce a bespoke artistic commission for the 123 meters of corridors that form the exit of the UGC Ciné Cité Les Halles, the biggest cinema in the world.Manifesto identified two talented young artists from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris for this unique artistic initiative: Elliott Causse and Kenia Almaraz Murillo. Working alongside Studio Elémentaires, a lighting designer, they created “Fluctuations” (2018), a labyrinthine artwork that plunges the public into a rite of passage from shadow to light, from fiction to reality. The combination of two different worlds – the guiding stripes in shades inspired by Kenia Almaraz Murillo’s home country and the interweaving, interlocking flow network created by Elliot Causse – gives this artwork a cosmic vibration that remains resolutely rooted in the urban reality that is all around us. In addition to this 123m mural, Manifesto coordinated the creation of a video (Nano Ville Film), shot on site with original music composed by the duo YEUZ and Dji Oto and screened in the cinema.

    • House of Mass & Mata Coco

      Novaxia

      Paris

      To welcome in 2019, Novaxia gave Manifesto carte blanche to come up with an artistic performance during its evening event, held on the floating hotel OFF Paris Seine. We invited the London artists HOUSE OF MASS & MATA COCO to give a performance combining contemporary dance and a multimedia installation in a unique space in the very heart of the hotel. The artists created “Scenario”, an original work designed specifically for a long corridor leading to hotel rooms. The Swiss choreographer and dancer Daniela Neugebauer immersed herself in a decor designed by the Venezuelan Henrique Ghersi, blending light effects and videos generated real-time from her movements, creating a paint-like effect when projected on the wood. With mesmerizing music by Nils Frahm, the dancer captivated the audience, exploring recollections and the varying scenarios created by memories.

    • Joia Mérida

      Pitch Promotion – Eiffage Immobilier

      Nice

      Manifesto pilots the artistic and cultural program of Joia Méridia, the winner of the Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur’s consultation on the Eco-Vallée area. It includes the creation of monumental artwork by Carsten Höller.Manifesto is part of the team managed by Pitch Promotion – Eiffage Immobilier, including architects Sou Fujimoto, Cino Zucchi, Lambert-Lénack, Dream, Chartier Dalix, Carta Associés, Anouck Matecki and the landscaper Alain Faragou. Joia Méridia aims to become the hub of the Nice Eco-Vallée urban technopole. Manifesto devised a high-profile artistic program to which the project’s developers decided to allocate 1% of the cost of construction. The company chose an artistic director from Nice, Eric Mangion, director of the Centre d’Art of the Villa Arson, and mobilized major local partners: the Musée National du Sport, the Espace de l’Art Concret and Le 109 – Pôle de Cultures Contemporaines. Manifesto was the driving force behind an exceptional artistic commission that will provide Nice with a new international artistic signature. Several decades after his time at Villa Arson, Carsten Höller will create a large-scale work of art, positioned high up on walkways, for Joia Méridia that will enhance the project’s architecture with the magical touch for which the artist is known. The team put together an ambitious and varied cultural program for the city’s residents and tourists that will begin with the construction phase and contribute to the creative life of the local area. As an example, Manifesto first commissioned photographer Olivier Amsellem to illustrate the landscape inspirations for Joia Méridia (Fall 2019).

    • Tour Eiffel Site

      City of Paris

      Paris

      The OnE project was chosen as the winner of an international competition launched by the City of Paris. Manifesto is responsible for artistic and cultural programming, within a multidisciplinary team led by Gustafson Porter + Bowman. Every year, 30 million people visit the Eiffel Tower. It’s become a victim of its own success: overcrowding has an adverse impact on the site and its surrounding areas. In May 2018, the City of Paris chose 4 finalist teams from 42 candidates to reinvent the area around the Eiffel Tower by focusing on three criteria (discovering, getting closer, visiting) and adopting a resilient, inclusive and environmentally friendly approach. A year later, it chose OnE, the project managed by Gustafson Porter + Bowman with Chartier Corbasson, Sathy, MA-Geo, Ariane Dienstag, Atelier Monchecourt, Devillers & Associés, 8’18, Area 17, Brichet Ziegler, Yris, Bollinger + Grohmann, ducks Scéno and several others. OnE will have a unifying approach, creating a major city park celebrating from Trocadero to the Ecole Militaire, with the Eiffel Tower at its center. The project will create recreational and contemplative spaces, from the east to the west of Paris, across the entire length of the site (54 hectares) to offer new perspectives. Manifesto is responsible for the project’s artistic and cultural programming, overseeing contemporary art commissions and leading the various experts and partners involved. By 2024, this area will host heritage trails, artworks, temporary installations, events and creative gardens for tourists and Parisians alike. We will contribute to developing a visitor experience with a poetic and creative focus while reaffirming the role of this area as one of the capital’s major cultural hubs.

      Saint-Denis

      Managed by the group represented by Sogelym Dixence, Les Lumières Pleyel – the winner of Inventons la Métropole du Grand Paris (Let’s Invent the City of Greater Paris) – provides Plaine Commune, the recently named “Land of culture and creation”, with a new, resolutely contemporary, innovative and protean site, devised by Manifesto.The project will provide 176,000m² for offices, housing, a hotel, student halls, shops and community and sports facilities and a 15,000m² park. The architectural team comprises Snøhetta, Baumschlager Eberle, Chaix & Morel, Ateliers 2/3/4/, Mars Architectes, Maud Caubet and Moreau Kusunoki. The hybrid and modular nature of the facilities – designed with a focus on their usability rather than on sole ownership – are unprecedented at a neighborhood level. To successfully create a lively, creative and contributory neighborhood, Les Lumières Pleyel has come up with a completely innovative concept in terms of urban animation: the “dissemination” of the program of activities throughout the neighborhood. This objective involves joint development for a total of more than 50 cultural, academic, creative and institutional stakeholders.

    • WALL#4 by JEAN BOURGOIS

      This series of photograph document the course of the river from the bay of Tokyo to the Shibuya station. It begins nearby the mouth where Tara** is docked at the front pier to extend her journey until inner city. Like in a movement of inertia, bridges follow themselves under highways to the ending Canal. As the level of light diminishes but the sources increase, it takes more time for every image to come before nightfall. Slowing down in the landscape becomes an experience of transfer. Moving through the city to the witness of its own shifts, construction sites and speed.

    • WALL#5 by MASAHO ANOTANI

      Masaho Anotani was born in 1991 in Hyogo. He studied design at Kyoto Seika University and Fine Art at Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Holland. He currently lives and works in Tokyo.
