ARTIST RESIDENCE Project
4th edition 2019 – 2020
GalleriaMonteoliveto will select artists who will have the “task” to create a work (painting, sculpture, photography, installation, video art, street art …) inspired by the light and colours of the Mediterranean and by the ‘art de vivre’ of the French Riviera, a land of inspiration of great artists from all over the world, Renoir, Bonnard, Matisse, Picasso, Chagall and their successors of the famous Ecole de Nice, César, Klein, Arman, Niki de St. Phalle, Ben, … The selected artists during their stay will have to “soak up” the light and atmosphere of the area, visit the places of art, and create an original work having a footprint in new trends in contemporary art.
During their stay the artists will be able to follow a stage of painting or sculpture as they prefer with a French Master, originary form Italy but living and working in the art field on the French Riviera from long time. And they will be able with her to follow a special course and also be personally informed – according to their interests – about the special art events and exhibitions in Nice during their stay together with a full list of locations, museums, galleries and sites of arts.
