2-12: Tailor-made AiR at Cité internationale des art
Cité internationale des art is inviting producers of visual and audiovisual arts, the performing arts, music and writing to apply for 2-12, part of their 2023-4 residency programme. The programme’s two-to-twelve-month residencies provide artists with time to do research and the space they need to live, work or both. Artists can apply for residencies running from September 2023 to August 2024.
In addition to a studio, the 2-12 programme offers networking opportunities within a community of 325 other artists in residence from various disciplines, of different ages and nationalities, as well as – depending on the project – with professionals. To best meet the needs of artists and culture professionals, there are two residency options on offer this year as part of the 2-12 programme:
- Live-in studio residency, i.e., a place to live and work.
- Work studio residency, without accommodation.
Whether applying for a live-in studio or a workshop without accommodation, the applicants must finance their own residency.
The live-in-studio option includes the provision of furnished accommodation (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen) and a workspace for the duration of the residency. Every studio has Wi-Fi, and some studios have a piano. The surface area of the live-in studios varies between 25m2 and 60m2. The monthly service charges start at 600€* and depend on the size of the studio. Residents may share their accommodation with an adult and/or a child under 7 years old, for which a supplement will be charged.
The work studio option is for artists and culture professionals who only need a place to work. This option includes the provision of a furnished workspace (worktable, chairs) equipped with a sink for the duration of the residency. The live-in studios/work studios all have Wi-Fi and vary in size between 30m2 and 40m2. Monthly rent for a workshop starts at 400€ and varies according to its size.
These residencies are open to French and foreign artists, curators and researchers in the field of visual and audiovisual arts, music, writing and the performing arts. Applicants must be aged 18 years or older (there is no age limit).
Applicants must provide a residency project. A committee composed of experts in their field studies the applications and selects the recipients. In addition to evaluating the candidate’s professional background, the members of the jury pay particular attention to the project’s artistic quality, the arguments explaining the added value of doing a residency in Paris, the work protocol envisaged and any contacts or partnerships that have already been established.
