Read about Gabriella Hirst’s Cite residency experience.
‘The Cité is such a wonderful community of people from all over the world, artists, composers, dancers, curators, all living in this little island, in this strange situation of being able to focus exclusively on their art projects. I now live in Berlin and have for two years, and the artists I met in Paris are some of my closest friends here.’ GABRIELLA HIRST, 2013 Cité resident
Read about Ivan Cerecina’s Cite residency experience.
‘There, I viewed a number of films that were vital to my research and that were unavailable anywhere else in the world.’ IVAN CERECINA, 2016 Cité resident
Read about Linda Dement’s Cite residency experience.
‘Through discussions, art critique, expeditions to galleries and events and informal development I found my project taking trajectories it would not have otherwise. Influences and provocations from other artists at the Cité and from the broader various arts events in Paris inspired and challenged on every level. This wonderful range of input, along side significant undisturbed blocks of solitary time in the studio researching and experimenting, contributed to an incredibly fast moving creative development period for me.’ LINDA DEMENT, 2007 Cité resident
