CAMARGO – FRAC – GOETHE
Collaborative Residency in the Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolitan Area
About the Program
Through this joint interdisciplinary residency program, the Camargo Foundation in Cassis, the Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (Frac), and the Goethe-Institut in Marseille come together to support one international project led by a team of artists and scholars. The selected team, composed of two to four members, will be hosted both at Frac and Camargo in 2021/2022.
This Program focuses on the different dimensions of the Marseille metropolitan area. The newly established Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolitan Area is located on the Mediterranean Sea with a mix of urban areas and unique natural sites. As the second largest metropolitan area in France, it has nearly 2 million inhabitants in 92 municipalities, with large inequalities. This Program offers the possibility of a joint residency in two art organizations located in two very different parts of the metropolitan area. The focus of the selected project should involve some artistic research taking into account the two different settings/territories of the residency.
- For artists and scholars of the Mediterranean Basin and Europe
- Research / experimentation / production
Purpose of the Residency
The main purpose of the residency is to stimulate relations and cultural exchanges between scholars and artists of the Mediterranean Basin and Europe, in order to support the development of projects at the interface between scientific research and the arts with the aim of a common production. In their proposals, applicants should therefore clearly demonstrate their interest in interdisciplinary crossovers and exchanges between arts and sciences, on the basis of their research and itineraries.
The residents will benefit from the professional setting, the support, and the network of the involved organizations.
The residency will also include a public presentation of the working process or outcome of the residency, which will take place at each of the two residency centers (Camargo and Frac).
