In Julian Rosefeldt’s 13-channel film installation, ‘Manifesto’ (2015), renowned actress Cate Blanchett portrays 13 different characters performing various artists’ manifestos. For this month’s Family Studio Workshop, participants will engage with the prompt, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ to produce multiple self-portraits using markers and watercolor paint, which will then be collaged onto one large poster board. The workshop will be led by Matt MacFarland.
About ‘Manifesto’ In ‘Manifesto’ (2015), actress Cate Blanchett assumes 13 different personas – from a factory worker to a television news anchor to a homeless man – performing various historical artists’ manifestos. The work pays homage to the long tradition and literary beauty of public statements made by artists, and serves to provoke reflection upon the role of the artist as an active citizen in society today.
