VINGT Paris, a curious mix between real estate and arts listings based in Paris, is attempting to combine the two spheres by offering artists the opportunity to live and work in Paris for a month rent-free in one of the company’s managed apartments.
Until October 19, 2011, candidates, artists of all mediums, are asked to submit portfolio, written motivation and proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for the project. The goal is to encourage artistic creation in Paris by offering residencies throughout the year in a paid‐for Parisian apartment as well as the opportunity to showcase work at a final event as defined by the artist, and profiled in the VINGT Paris Magazine.
For this launch residency, the artist will stay in the 15th arrondissement in a 15m2 apartment from November 20th to December 20th, and will work closely with the VINGT Paris Presents curator to create the final event. However, it should be pointed out that the artist will need to pay for other expenses including travel, food, and supplies.
