For more than 500 years, Paris has had a definitive influence on artists and artistic practices worldwide. As examples - Impressionism, Symbolism, Art Nouveau, Fauvism, Cubism and Art Deco are all movements and styles that evolved in Paris.
In recognition of the legacy that this city, its galleries, collections, and artistic communities have imparted on the world, UNSW Art & Design supports studio residencies for staff and students at the Cité Internationale des Arts. The aim is to support the development of artistic practices in the areas of design, visual and performing arts and encourage awareness of the importance of history to contemporary arts practice.
For UNSW academic staff, a AUD $10,000 3-month residency – complete with accommodation, studio workspace, and a living allowance – is made available 4 times a year.
For UNSW Art & Design postgraduate research students, two scholarships (Ross Steele Cité Internationale des Arts scholarships) are made available per annum to the value of $8,000 to underpin a Cité residency.
Cité Internationale des Arts residencies provided through UNSW Art & Design place Australian artists, designers, and curators in the midst of a vast and dynamic international arts community. The Cité functions as a base for creative practitioners from almost 50 countries, providing selected representatives with access to living, making, and exhibition spaces.
An information session on the 2018 Cité Internationale des Arts residencies is being held on Tuesday 9 May from 1– 2pm in the Elwyn Lynn Conference Centre, Paddington Campus.
