United Artists for Europe is an exhibition, cultural event and a charity auction based on an original idea by Bernard-Henri Lévy, hosted at Ely House in London and organised by The Hexagon Society with Tancrède Hertzog and Léopold Legros. The charity auction will be conducted by Simon de Pury.
The French philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy is among the leading European intellectuals. In January 2019, he initiated a Manifesto signed by thirty European writers, to warn of the dangers incurred by the rise of nationalism in Europe. Simultaneously, he began a European tour for his play Looking for Europe, a plea for a united Europe, and a remedy against populism and extremism. Curator of the exhibition The Adventures of Truth in 2013, and author of publications about Mondrian and Frank Stella, he is one of the initiators of the United Artists for Europe Manifesto.
