Grant Opportunities: The Artists Residencies Art Explora: International City of the Arts

Must read

Deadline: 4-Nov-22

The Art Explora foundation, in collaboration with the Cité internationale des arts, welcomes every year about twenty residents, artists and researchers from all over the world. This programme offers the possibility for artists and researchers to carry out research and creation work in the heart of Paris, in connection with the French artistic and professional scene.

The residents’ work focuses on the theme of scientific and technological exploration and confronts the major social and environmental issues of this time.

To encourage cultural exchanges with as many people as possible, Art Explora renews the dialogue between the arts and the public on a local, national and international scale. Convinced that mobility and digital technology can broaden the boundaries of the human imagination, Art Explora encourages new forms of public access and engagement. Together with artists, cultural organisations and local actors, the foundation explores contemporary creation in all its forms and creates unique cultural experiences.

To accomplish this mission of public interest, the foundation supports several projects: the Art Explora Academy, launched in 2022, the first entirely free digital platform dedicated to learning about art history; the HangarY, which will become, at the end of 2022, a new cultural space dedicated to contemporary creation and to a renewed dialogue between the arts and the public; itinerant projects such as the MuMo, the mobile museum created in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou, as well as the ArtExplorer, the world’s first museum boat, which will sail out in 2023 to meet the communities of all the continents of the globe.
