Masterclass art and the city
Manifesto and the Centre Pompidou are launching a Masterclass on
Art and the City
What role can art and culture play in our cities? How can the presence of art play a part in reinventing the relationship between the built environment and urban space? Those are the key issues at the heart of the new Centre Pompidou masterclass. Open to real estate and architecture managers and professionals, the masterclass will be hosted in an art installation designed by Swiss architect Leopold Banchini right inside the Centre Pompidou Museum.
Today, art and culture play an increasingly important role in the modern city. The Centre Pompidou Masterclasses and Manifesto have joined together to develop a training program on artistic contributions in architecture and urban spaces. City developers acknowledge it always makes a difference. So what are the tools you can use in order to include art and culture in your projects ? How to make an arts project successful for the urban developer, for his audiences and the artists themselves ?
Encouraging and supporting reflection on the issues of an artistic contribution (whether temporary or permanent), incorporated into the built environment and the city.
- Exploring the different types of artistic commissions and contributions and understanding the artist and his/her relationship with the urban environment.
