la Cité Internationale des Arts
The support provided by the Cité internationale des arts for cultural development is based on the idea of a project: each artist organizes his or her residence independently and can submit a project to the Cité internationale arts. Thus, through several programs, the resident-artists can present an exhibition, a concert, a meeting, a projection or a performance. A number of events at the Cité internationale des arts are also organized in partnership with other structures.
The Cité internationale des arts is also a relay of current events Off-The-Cité by the artists in residence, through a dedicated section.

Elisabeth Czihak (Austria)

Elisabeth Czihak's work is about the transformation of the seemingly constant, as well as the everlasting continuity of architectural bodies, traces and memories. In the effort to record the ephemeral, hidden and that no longer exists, lies one of the themes of her documentary photographs and abstract drawings on paper or wall.

By these different artistic means she sounds the spatial and temporal dimensions of her realms in experience and memory. This includes taking possession of abandoned places with her camera, or detecting the rapid mutability of urban space, whether it be in her inscribing graphic marks in the form of frazzling stains into exhibition rooms, or giving own space to her linear creatures on paper.

Free entrance, from 6pm to 10pm

Anna Katharina Scheidegger (Switzerland)

After a residence at the Casa de Velázquez in Madrid and their installation/performance entitled "Contreforme" at the Cité Internationale des arts in 2016, Anna Katharina Scheidegger and Romuald Dumas-Jandolo continue their collaboration. For this open studio “POP UP”, Romuald Dumas-Jandolo will present his work in echo with a work by Anna Katharina Scheidegger. This event will mark the meeting between two artists who appear not to have the same aesthetic codes, but whose reflection on the world coincides as much as it offends the antagonisms of childhood to death, the history of Art to the cinema or from eroticism to aesthetics.
