Manifesta 12 is the Nomadic Biennial of contemporary art and culture, on view in various locations in Palermo, Italian Capital of Culture 2018, where 50 artists exhibit their works. The Sicilian capital comes alive with exhibitions, installations, videos and performances, urban interventions and projects linked to the event’s theme, "The Planetary Garden.
