Tram is coordinating Hospitalities, the first shared project by the network’s 25 member spaces. Hospitality is the unifying theme of this event and reflects our commitment to artists, their work and all audiences. Exhibition spaces in cities, on their outskirts or in the country are places where welcoming the public is a daily reality and where art is tied to hospitality. Our aim is to highlight the extraordinary amount of artistic activity going on and to create local and international connections showing that we are all involved with what artists have to offer.

Within the synergies operative at regional, national and international level, the different structures appropriate the theme according to their identity, their missions and their prospects, and respond in a variety of ways: residencies for artists or curators, exchanges with other spaces in Europe, cartes blanches for visiting curators etc. As part of the network rationale, major international institutions are being included in the project, among them the Centre Pompidou and the the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard.

The programme: some 20 exhibitions, about a hundred artists, a series of meetings and performances that will contribute to 10 days of hospitalities. The whole of the Ile-de-France region will share this contemporary art experience. The public Hospitalities’ main guest will be invited to move between projects from Paris to the outskirts and vice versa, thanks to 10 ‘taxi tram’ buses provided for the event.

Tram is a network of 25 structures engaged in the production and exhibition of contemporary art in Ile-de-France. Art centres, museums, art schools, artists’ collectives, foundations and the Regional Art Collection (Frac) all carry out activities which complement creation, exhibition, collecting, teaching, outreach, publishing, etc.
