Extended Until Sunday 15 July: Julian Rosefeldt’s Manifesto

Extended Until Sunday 15 July: Julian Rosefeldt’s Manifesto

Auckland Art Gallery Toi Tāmaki’s presentation of the immersive 13-screen film installation, Manifesto, by Julian Rosefeldt featuring Cate Blanchett has been extended until Sunday 15 July. See trailer here.

Rosefeldt’s Manifesto (2015) delivers extraordinary filmmaking that invites viewers to explore the limits of emotional range as actor Cate Blanchett inhabits thirteen roles from school teacher to puppeteer, newsreader and factory worker.

Throughout, Rosefeldt pays homage to the tradition of artist manifestos, drawing on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists and other artist groups.

Last month, Manifesto triumphed at Germany’s biggest film awards, the Lolas, taking out awards for Best Production Design, Best Costume Design and Best Makeup.

Local commentators have called the exhibition ‘stunning’ (Stuff.co.nz), ‘unforgettable’ (Concrete Playground) and ’a total work of art’ (Art News New Zealand).

Manifesto offers Gallery visitors a rich, visual experience and the chance to explore the role of artists – and artists’ manifestos – today.

Upcoming public programmes:
Makeup Demonstration: Diane Ensor & Bex Elliot from the Makeup School
Sunday 20 May, 3pm, Gallery’s North Atrium

Join Diane Ensor and Bex Elliot from the Makeup School as they explore the extraordinary physical transformations that Cate Blanchett undergoes in Manifesto. Diane and Bex will transform identical twins Hannah and Rachel into two radically different characters from Manifesto.
