The Art Explora Foundation together with Cité internationale des arts co-construct a unique residency programme for French and international artists and researchers.
The programme invites candidates to propose a project that questions contemporary issues, including new technologies, the links between art and science, and environmental and social issues.
Two formats are proposed and are open to artists and researchers of all nationalities, without age limit. Eligible artists are those who can demonstrate a minimum of five years of professional activity.
SOLO Programme: for artists only. Two 6-month SOLO residency sessions each hosting 6 artists: March - August 2023 / September 2023 - February 2024. That is to say 12 artists hosted each year. The eligible artistic disciplines are: visual arts, performing arts, digital arts.
DUO Programme: for a collaboration between a researcher and an artist. For this programme, only one application on behalf of both members of the duo is required. Four 3-month DUO residency sessions will each host a duo: March - May 2023 / June - August 2023 / September - November 2023 / December 2023 - February 2024. That is to say 8 artists and researchers hosted each year. The eligible research fields are: humanities, social sciences, sciences, technological innovation, sustainable development, art criticism and curating.
Every resident will benefit from:
- A live-in studio of about 50m2, equipped and furnished (shared in the DUO program).
- A living allowance of 1000 euros per month (for each member of the duo, if applicable).
- A production grant of up to 3000 euros, delivered upon proof and according to the specificities of the project (global envelope shared between the two members of the duo, if applicable).
- A round trip to Paris paid for by the foundation (for each member of the duo, if applicable).
