NEW DATE TO COME

ART EXPLORA INITIATES AN ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CITÉ INTERNATIONALE DES ARTS IN PARIS

CITÉ INTERNATIONALE DES ARTS - MONTMARTRE - PARIS

Art Explora has established a lasting partnership with the Cité internationale des arts, in close collaboration with the city of Paris, to co-construct a new biannual residency program for international artists and researchers in Montmartre, just a stone’s throw from the Sacré-Coeur.

The “Art Explora - Cité internationale des arts” residency program offers the possibility for artists and researchers to carry out research and creation work in the heart of Paris, in connection with the French artistic and professional scene.

The 1st edition will begin in spring 2021 and will host 13 residents:
 
Brook Andrew
Oulimata Gueye
Mohssin Harraki
Sophie Houdart
Hamedine Kane
Maya Minder
Sara Ouhaddou
Mélanie Pavy
Fatima Rodrigo Gonzalez
Dineo Seshee Bopape
Charwei Tsai
Maarten Vanden Eynde
Akram Zaatar
About twenty residents will be selected every year to participate in two programs:  
  • a 6-month SOLO residency program for artists. 
  • a 3-month DUO program designed for a collaboration between a researcher and an artist.
Both programs are open to artists and researchers of all nationalities, with no age limit, who can justify a minimum of five years of professional activity. The eligible artistic disciplines are visual arts, performing arts, digital art and the areas of research are the humanities, social sciences, sciences, technological innovation and sustainable development, art criticism and exhibition curating.

The goal is to select profiles that explore tomorrow’s world and which take into account the social and environmental issues of our societies. Thus, all residents must defend a project that questions the links between art and science and such themes as scientific exploration, technological exploration and the exploration of the world through the promotion of emerging artistic scenes.
