Centre International d'Art et du Paysage (France) > Residency in art history

For this 11th season of residencies, art historians are invited to apply for a residency by submitting a research project about the history of sculpture parks in Europe and the renewal of this model from the example of the Sculpture Wood on Vassivière Island.

Founded in 1983 and now composed of 60 open air works in the public sphere, the Sculpture Wood reflects today's principal trends, from permanent to temporary, from monumental to more discreet pieces, such as those of Gilles Clément, Yona Friedman, Andy Goldsworthy, Koo Jeong A, Victor Man, Olivier Mosset, Hans-Walter Müller, David Nash, Michaël Sailstorfer, Erik Samakh, Oscar Tuazon...

 Today the Art Centre is developing a new project to expand itself out of the Island by commissioning works out of the lake’s shore. The institution is also engaged in a thinking process on the renewal of the sculpture park model, by linking its commissioning activity to rural contemporary issues, particularly through the residency programme.

Residence allowance: The resident receives living expenses of 500 euros taxes included per month. His or her presence is not required full time, but the full amount on expenses can only be paid if the resident is present for at least half of the residency duration, continuously or otherwise. In addition the Art Centre covers travel costs between the resident's home and Vassiviere island up to a total amount of 300 euros.

Deadline: 19 March 2017
