After over ten years of activity, the Pavillon Neuflize OBC, the Palais de Tokyo’s research lab, is now reinforcing its presence within the museum. Next November, the Pavillon will welcome five international young artists for an eight-month residency, from November to June. Each year a number of these artists are selected through the Palais de Tokyo’s international outreach effort in different emerging regions of the world.
The program is divided into two sections.
Its first half is dedicated to travel abroad – a time to reflect, exchange ideas and discover. Through collective work, the artists observe different methods of production and compare diverse realities of art in the world.
The second half of the program is spent on individual work. Advised by a curator of the Palais de Tokyo and a member of the Tokyo Art Club, each artist is invited to create a work that will be presented to the public at the Palais de Tokyo or by a partner institution.
Candidates can submit applications, unsolicited or invited by the Pavillon’s team and the Palais de Tokyo’s curatorial staff. The jury then meets with ten artists to discuss their motivations and projects. The selected artists will begin their residency in fall 2015*.
The 2014/15 artists-in-residence will be invited by the Palais de Toyko.
*The call for applications for the session 2015/2016 will be posted in May 2014.
