Founded in 1965, Cité internationale des arts, is today the largest artist residency center in the world: 22, 000 artists have been hosted in residence since its creation. Its ideal location in the heart of Paris is an added value for artists to interact with the cultural scene of the French capital, and it makes Cité an important hub in the cultural landscape of Paris and internationally.
Cité internationale des arts is located on two complementary sites, one in the Marais district and the other in Montmartre. With its 135 French and international partners, it welcomed in 2016 more than 1,200 artists from 100 countries in more than 300 studios. Artists from all disciplines but also curators are hosted for residencies that can last from 2 to 12 months.
The ambitious project of Cité international des arts is to welcome artists from all around the world, giving them the adequate environment to encourage encounters, artistic crossovers and creativity. It is a place open to dialogue between cultures, where artists meet their audiences and professionals.
