This event has ended.

Inspired by the article "Inside the Studios of Five New York Artists," by Vogue Style Editor-at-Large Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Manifesto is co-curated by von Thurn und Taxis and Antoine Guerrero, Director of Visual Arts at FIAF, and highlights a group of accomplished artists who draw inspiration from the city. Von Thurn und Taxis profiled the artists in November 2011, shortly after arriving in New York. To create a visual manifesto of her article, the curators asked each artist to present one artwork that offers a reflection on New York City.

"Each of the artists I interviewed draws an abundance of inspiration and drive from living in New York City—it is their home, their muse, and their creative laboratory," said von Thurn und Taxis. "What I loved about my initial article was that it offered me the opportunity to interview these interesting artists and to discover this magnificent city through their eyes, their works, their creative process. To me, there is no better guidebook than firsthand insight from a creative mind."
