A word from the Spokesperson
When an event you’ve been admiring so much for so long asks you to be its spokesperson, you feel like a 9-year-old who got picked first by the soccer team captain in Phys Ed. Except that had never happened to me before. So, I blushed a little.
La Manif acts on so many levels. It shakes you, stimulates you, astounds you and—dirty word ahead—disturbs you. It scatters ideas, it disseminates art, without levelling down. It speaks to your brainy side. Which is rare. And precious.
Unanimousness is mind-numbing boredom. Long live bodacious events! La Manif is about art that refuses to match the shades of your sofa. And that’s fine by me.
Happy Manif d’art 7!
