Julian Rosefeldt, Manifesto - Park Ave Armory, NYC

 

The recent show at the Park Ave Armory, New York City – “Manifesto” -  by artist Julian Rosefeldt was a compelling use of a giant exhibition space to create an immersive, provocative artwork. Across thirteen large screens, Australian actress Cate Blanchett embodied over 50 artist manifestos, many of whose fighting, revolutionary call-to-arms I believe have never sounded more pertinent than at this present time.  This video installation displayed both a thrilling use of screens and of elaborately-produced filmmaking to provoke and challenge the role of the artist in contemporary society and politics.
