Work in progress (everyday)


A residency center never stops: it is first and foremost a place to live and work before being a place of performance. Despite the context, creation still lives at the Cité internationale des arts. We have decided to virtually knock on the doors of the artists in residence studios here in Paris and of those who have left to show that creation continues to take place.
A daily place for artistic creation in all its forms on a daily basis...
