Art Explora develops in France and abroad programs of artists' villas whose main objective is to support creation and to reinforce relationships between artists, territories and all kinds of audiences. 

In Paris, Art Explora has established a partnership with the Cité internationale des arts to co-construct a biannual residency program for international artists and researchers in Montmartre, just a stone’s throw from the Sacré-Cœur. 

About 20 residents, all working on projects questioning the link between arts and science, technology or environmental issues, will be selected every year to participate in two programs:
–a six-month SOLO residency program for artists
–a three-month DUO program designed for a collaboration between a researcher and an artist

For the first edition, 990 applications from 68 countries were received.

25 residents coming from all over the world have been selected by an international selection committe to join the two residency sessions of 2021 in either the SOLO or DUO programs.

The residency program Art Explora - Cité internationale des arts also includes regular meetings between the artists, art-world profesionnals, associations, but also audiences from all walks of life. These meetings are generally followed by a studio visit and aim at bringing together people who barely have the occasion to meet each other.

This program will host several associations such as:
–Môm’artre, which offers artistic childcare arrangements in popular districts  
–Chemins d’avenir which supports students living far away from the large agglomerations
–Les Ateliers Médicis whose aim is to developp meetings between artists and inhabitants thanks to new kinds of artistic voices;
