Application deadline: November 4, 11:59pm

The 2023 residency open call for applications is now available, according to Art Explora, a global organization that fosters fresh interactions between artists and audiences locally, nationally, and worldwide.

Art Explora and the Cité internationale des arts residency programme in Paris  

In partnership with Paris’ Cité internationale des arts, Art Explora established a biennial residence program in 2021 to promote international artists. Over 40 residents of diverse ages, fields of study, and nationalities have been welcomed since the inaugural residency session began in 2021 at the Cité des arts de Montmartre in the center of Paris.

Artists and scholars from all over the world have until November 4, 2022, to submit an application to this special residency program with a project that explores the connections between art, science, technological, social, and ecological contemporary concerns.

The third iteration of the residency program will be split into two sessions, each lasting six months, beginning in March and September of 2023, respectively.

Two programmes are proposed:

–a SOLO programme for artists only;
–a DUO programme for a collaboration between an artist and a researcher or scientist based in France, and for artist collectives.

All residents will benefit from a fully-furnished studio for 3 or 6 months, a grant for living expenses and a production grant. 

The selection committee is composed of leading figures from the worlds of art and academic research: 
–Magalí Arriola (Mexico): Art critic and Director of the Museo Tamayo of Contemporary Art
–Diana Campbell Betancourt (USA & Bangladesh): Artistic Director of the Samdani Art Foundation and Chief Curator of the Dhaka Art Summit

–Isabelle Gaudefroy (France): Deputy Artistic Director of the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain
