The Cité internationale des arts and the Centre national des arts plastiques have joined forces to create a unique residency program for curators and art critics from the French scene.
This program is part of the new support measures to help us emerge from the crisis caused by the pandemic. It aims to provide material and artistic support to cultural actors who are in a very precarious situation in these uncertain times.
The aim of this scheme is to offer exhibition curators and art critics a living and working space, financial support and a conducive artistic environment for a period of six months.
A call for applications has been launched from June 27th to August 16th, 2020, open to curators and art critics of all nationalities living in France, who have been involved in professional life for at least 5 years.
Some key numbers!
• 57 applications
• 5 residencies of 6 month (October 2020 to March 2021)
• A grant of 750€ per artist/per month
• The recipients: 4 women & 1 man
