This neighborhood, ZAC Paris Rive Gauche, is located on the north-eastern outskirts of the 13th arrondissement of Paris, very close to the Seine and Ivry sur Seine.</p> <p class="spip">In this context planned as a model of contemporary urbanism, Bétonsalon wishes to create a space for reflection, anchored in its district, a univesity and society at large. Designed as a place for production and research, Bétonsalon experiments various formats to produce, publish and distribute art, working with actors from many disciplines (artists, philosophers, playwrights, choreographers, scientists, architects…) to develop their practice on processual, collaborative and discursive levels.</p> <p class="spip">Projects take multiple forms and develop on different time scales: workshops, lectures, publications, exhibitions, neighborhood visits, festivals, performances, interventions in the public space ...</p> Wed, 14 May 2014 14:08:57 +0000 Canadian Cultural Centre - Paris, 5 rue de Constantine , 75007 Paris, France <p style="text-align: justify;">The Visual Arts Programme at the Canadian Cultural Centre presents an average of four contemporary art exhibitions per year, which are specifically developed in relation to French or European cultural events, or to current events most likely to attract the general public and art professionals to the artists we present. The programming is conceived to maintain a certain diversity of the most competitive contemporary practices on an international level, as our objective is to present the best of Canadian creation to the public. These exhibitions are developed according to the objectives set by the Canadian Government’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, of which the Canadian Cultural Centre is a representative institution. Please note that the Canadian Cultural Centre does not operate on a call for submissions basis for its exhibition programming.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Visual Arts Programme also serves an important role in disseminating information: to Canadian artists and art professionals by providing documentary and logistical support in order to enhance the visibility of Canadian creation and to promote collaboration between Canadian and French counterparts; and by promoting exhibitions by Canadian artists in France, which are listed in the printed programme published each trimester by the Canadian Cultural Centre, as well as on our web site. It is important to note that we do not seek out potential exhibition opportunities for artists, as the Canadian Cultural Centre cannot provide individualized assistance to each artist.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In addition to the programming and promotion of exhibitions, the Visual Arts Programme produces and publishes catalogues in the Esplanade Collection, dedicated to the promotion of the exhibitions presented at the Canadian Cultural Centre. The collection is the main editorial activity of our institution and is a record, not only of its activities in France, but also of its commitment to creating intellectual and artistic encounters leading to new horizons.</p> Tue, 07 May 2013 03:51:50 +0000 Centquatre, 104 rue d'Aubervilliers , 5 rue Curial, 75019 Paris, France <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />CENTQUATRE is a place of artistic creation and production unique in the world. Open to all forms of art, this 39,000 m&sup2; (419, 792 sq. feet) space is an original architectural whole in which art meets the public head-on. The brainchild of two directors, Robert Cantarella and Fr&eacute;d&eacute;ric Fisbach, aims in particular to highlight the singular artistic languages present at CENTQUATRE, the location for an experience rooted in the everyday. It is a place where the artistic dynamic pushes back the boundary between art and the public. At CENTQUATRE, therefore, art and culture are open to visitors as well as to passers-by and the onlookers. This powerful movement gives momentum to brand new methods of creation, production and visibility. The reception and working areas in CENTQUATRE, as well as all the programmes, festivals and events are thought out with this artistic dynamic in mind. The aim of the approach is to increase the number of channels for accessing contemporary creative art and allow unrestricted access to it.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Some thirty artistic projects will be developped each year, bringing on the coming of about 200 artists from all over the world, stayin on site at the same time. CENTQUATRE is a place of production and provides artists with the technical, financial and human resources for creating a work as well as for imagining unrestricted production and co-production methods. During their stay, artists will use the various areas provided for them according to their needs. These areas can be adapted according to the artistic orientation chosen and the work stages involved. Each artist is therefore free to explore their flexibility and give them a transient and reversible purpose. Along with the workshop openings, three festivals will be held during the year, showing the finished works of artists staying at CENTQUATRE.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> Thu, 28 Jan 2016 05:48:02 +0000 cneai, 2 rue du Bac, Île des Impressionnistes, 78400 Chatou, France <p>Créé en 1997, le Cneai est un centre national d'art contemporain consacré au domaine de la publication d'artiste et de l'oeuvre-média.

Chaque temps d’exposition est l’occasion d’une programmation d'actions, de performances, de productions, de séminaires et de workshops. Chaque année, le salon Light rassemble pendant trois jours, cinquante éditeurs indépendants et des milliers de visiteurs. Le programme de publication laisse une part belle aux projets d’artistes (principalement livres d’artistes, disques et dvd,..) et aux revues associant contributions en sciences humaines et contributions artistiques.<br /> Le Cneai propose en effet des programmes d'expositions mais aussi de médiations, de publications, de productions d’œuvres multiples, ainsi que des actions hors les murs et deux collections : la collection "Multiple" composée des oeuvres produites au Cneai et la collection "FMRA" (<a href=""></a>) qui rassemble neuf mille publications d'artistes (livres d'artistes, vyniles, journaux, éphéméras...).<br /> Amarrée aux abords du centre d'art, la Maison flottante du Cneai, résidence interdisciplinaire dans son esprit comme dans son programme, créée en 2007, a été dessinée par les frères Bouroullec avec Jean-Marie Finot et Denis Daversin. <br /> Auteurs, artistes, écrivains, théoriciens y sont reçus pour concevoir et mettre en œuvre, souvent à plusieurs mains des projets publiés.</p> <hr /> <p><span class="Style5">Devoted to artists' publication, the Cneai is a national contemporary art center.

The tree was placed in a gigantic flowerpot clad with multi-coloured mosaics made by the talented and offbeat designer Alessandro Mendini. <br />Above the entrance is a `plant wall´ commissioned in 1998 from Patrick Blanc, a specialist in tropical botany who invented this unusual concept. <br />The main body of the building is set back from the boulevard and the façades on each side extend outward, seamlessly merging the garden with the building itself. Acting in turn as windows and mirrors, the glass walls offer glimpses of the works on show and reflect the clouds and the cityscape. A veritable `hall of mirrors´, the building constantly changes as the day or night progresses.</p> <p>Inside, Jean Nouvel has invented a flexible modular space that encourages artists to make the architecture their own, modifying it and inhabiting it for the duration of their exhibitions. Each project provides an opportunity to reinvent the space. <br />The ground floor, with its 26-foot ceiling, opens onto the garden and can be darkened for film screenings and video installations. Its huge plate-glass windows can slide out of sight, transforming the building into a huge structure on stilts.</p> <p>Access<br />Métro: lines 4 et 6, stations Raspail ou Denfert-Rochereau<br />Bus: 38, 68<br />RER: Denfert-Rochereau<br />Parking: Disabled parking available at 2, rue Victor Schoelcher</p> <p><input id="gwProxy" type="hidden" /><input onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" type="hidden" /></p> <div id="refHTML"></div> Wed, 22 Oct 2014 15:47:54 +0000 Fondation Taylor, 1 rue La Bruyère, 75009 Paris, France <p style="text-align: justify;">Na&icirc;t &agrave; Bruxelles le 5 ao&ucirc;t 1789.
