ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
Magnum Manifesto
exhibit celebrating 70 years of Magnum Photos

This landmark exhibition celebrates the 70th anniversary of Magnum Photos, founded by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David Seymour and George Rodger in May 1947. Tracing the ideas and ideals behind the founding and development of the cooperative, curator Clément Chéroux, formerly photography curator at the Centre Pompidou, now senior curator of photography at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, explores the history of the second half of the 20th century through the lens of 75 masters, providing a new and insightful perspective on the contribution of these photographers to our collective visual memory.

Featuring group and individual projects, the exhibition will include over two hundred prints as well as books, magazines, videos, and rarely before seen archival documents.
