The Art Explora – Cité internationale des arts residency program, launched in 2021, gives artists and researchers from all over the world the opportunity to engage in research and creative work in the heart of Paris, in collaboration with the French art scene and professionals. It encourages creation in all its forms, disseminating it to the largest possible public. The residents’ work focuses on the theme of scientific and technological exploration and confronts the major social and environmental issues of our time.
Some 20 residents are selected each year to participate in two types of programmes: a six-month SOLO residency programme for artists only, and a three-month DUO programme for a collaboration between a researcher and an artist. Both programmes are open to artists and researchers of all nationalities, with no age limit, who can demonstrate a minimum of five years of professional experience. Eligible artistic disciplines include visual arts, performance arts, and digital arts. Eligible research areas include humanities, social sciences, technological innovation, sustainable development, art criticism, and curating.
For the 2nd edition, 12 recipients including 50% of women, from 10 countries were chosen by a selection committee for the SOLO and DUO programmes.
They will arrive at the Montmartre site of the Cité internationale des arts fro residencies of 3 to 6 months.
