Fondation Fiminco is launching a call for curators for a six-month research, creation and production residency taking place in Romainville (Seine-Saint-Denis). It is open to emerging curators as well as curators with significant professional experience, living in France and abroad.

Deadline to submit applications: November 30, 2021.

About Fondation Fiminco
The Fondation has reinvested a former brownfield on the outskirts of Paris (Romainville) in order to make it a resource centre for international artists and curators. This place provides them with spaces, tools and support in order to create a working environment that encourages encounters between all forms of art and the enrichment of their practice. The Fondation’s objective is not to constitute and expose an art collection but to support residents throughout their creative processes, accompanying their professional and artistic development.

The residency
The primary objective of the residency is to provide the curator with a privileged setting for a research and creation work.

The Fondation Fiminco’s residency is conceived as a place of professionalization that helps artists and curators to gain visibility on the French art scene and to anchor themselves in a network. The Fondation will organise meetings with art world professionals. Open house days will also be organised, allowing the public to discover the studios and creative spaces of the artists and curator in residence over a whole day.

Living and working spaces
She or he will have a work space, an individual furnished studio between 20 and 25 m2 with an internet connection. She or he will also have access to shared kitchen and living spaces, as well as conditions that facilitate collaboration with other residents and with external structures.

Terms of open call
The residency is aimed at artists residing in France or abroad, without an age limit, who can demonstrate a professional practice, either emerging established.

A jury composed of art and culture professionals will establish a shortlist of candidates based on their application. Pre-selected candidates will then be invited for an interview (in person or via videoconference) taking place in December 2021.
