KALEIDOSCOPE MANIFESTO: On Collaboration: May 17–19
Fondation Lafayette Anticipations
9 rue du Plâtre
75004 Paris

KALEIDOSCOPE teams up with Lafayette Anticipations – Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette, on a multi-disciplinary program of public events taking place in Paris from 17–19 May 2019.

This new festival—co-curated by KALEIDOSCOPE’s creative director Alessio Ascari and editor-at-large Myriam Ben Salah with Lafayette Anticipation’s director François Quintin—will bring together some of the most interesting and influential figures on the contemporary creative scene over three days of talks, screenings, workshops and performances.

The core theme of the first edition of KALEIDOSCOPE MANIFESTO will be ON COLLABORATION. As the “collab” mentality becomes the biggest trend across fashion and design, it is important to emphasize how collaboration between artists and creative heads from different fields has been a staple of contemporary art since the 20th century. Today, as the figure of the “author” becomes increasingly hybrid and collective, we witness the shift from a linear creation of value onto a “constellar” one that relies on curiosity, reciprocity and mutual inspiration, at times resulting into enduring synergies which open up an entirely new world for the artists involved.

Over three days of encounters, KALEIDOSCOPE MANIFESTO will activate the core functions of Lafayette Anticipations, turning the OMA building into a machine for collective production of ideas, and the temporary home of a spontaneous community.

Artists, thinkers and creators participating in the festival include Virgil Abloh, Amnesia Scanner, Neïl Beloufa, Black Radical Imagination, Le Cinéma Club, Yussef Dayes, Simon Denny, DIS, Romain Gavras, Invernomuto, Kelsey Lu, Red Lebanese, Nkisi, James Richards, Cali Thornhill-Dewitt, Total Luxury Spa and Young Girl Reading Group, among others.

The visual identity and digital presence of KALEIDOSCOPE MANIFESTO is designed by Berlin-based creative studio Sucuk und Bratwurst.
