Artists Residency at Fondation FIMINCO, Romainville – January and June 2020

Deadline for applications: May 31, 2019

The Fondation FIMINCO is launching its call for applications to transdisciplinary visual artists of any age from across the world for a residency in research, creation, and production based in Romainville (Seine-Saint-Denis, France).

A total of 18 artists will be selected, divided into two sessions: a first session with 9 residents to start in January 2020, and a second session with 9 residents in June 2020.

The Fondation FIMINCO is a contemporary art space focused on international cross-disciplinary visual art located in Romainville, just east of Paris. It is dedicated to supporting multidisciplinary contemporary international creation through a program of residencies, exhibitions, performances, events, and workshops. The Fondation FIMINCO will open its doors in Fall 2019.

The Residency

The Fondation FIMINCO supports creation, research, experimentation, and production by contemporary artists. The residency program is open to visual artists from France and abroad, of any age, who have shown a significant professional development. Projects relating to the area the residency is held in (understood in the widest sense of the term: projects related to the institutions, organizations, communities, and researchers of Seine-Saint-Denis and Paris) and to its public are encouraged.

The residency’s main goal is to provide artists with an ideal setting for their creative and research work. Artists will be guided by the Fondation’s team during their entire residency, and will have access to creative tools and conditions that enable collaborations within the Fondation and beyond it, group work, and more largely all types of exchange between its residents.The residency thus aims to build bridges between different art scenes and give artists the opportunity to confront their work to a variety of cultural, political, and social contexts, in order to enrich their practices and encourage the exchange of ideas.

Deadline for applications: May 31, 2019
