Highlights 2018

During 2018 we will see four years of focused work come to full fruition. Beyond the 18 participants in our Core Program we will host over 70 other residents through our new activities. These include partnerships with foundations, art organizations and universities from both France and the US, including International Opera Festival of Aix-en-Provence, the Aix-Marseille University, the Jerome Foundation, Art Matters NYC or 3Arts Chicago.

With support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation we have developed a new initiative, The Cultural Diaspora, that brings together African-American and African playwrights. And, with the Pythéas Research Institute and the Calanques National Park we have created an art & science residency, which allows artists to consider and create work around the human/nature relationship.

The Calanques: Land of Science and Source of Inspiration

From January 10 to February 14, 2018

In 2017, the Pythéas Research Institute, the Calanques National Park, and the Camargo Foundation invited artists to submit applications for an art & science residency, in order to think, create and work on the Human/Nature relationship. Eight international artists or collectives will be hosted at the Camargo Foundation for a one month residency in January-February 2018.

Accompanied by researchers, officers and users of the Calanques National Park, selected artists will be invited to re-invent links between the nature and the inhabitants of the Marseille metropolitan area.

With support from the Daniel & Nina Carasso Foundation.
