Étant Donnés Residencies

French professionals
Institut français-Paris, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, and FACE Foundation joined forces in 2017 to launch this new residency program. These 3 grants are intended for French or France-based visual artists seeking to spend a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 months in the United States, as long as their residency is organized in partnership with an American organization.
The projects should take place in the US between June 1, 2021 and August 31, 2022.

Étant donnés Contemporary Art aims to strengthen ties between France and the U.S. in the field of contemporary art by fostering active collaboration and encouraging long-lasting partnerships between French visual artists, curators, and collectives and American curators and cultural institutions. The fund supports the discovery of emerging talents, while also sustaining interest in established artists. Furthermore, it has been instrumental in creating a network of curators from France and the U.S. Since its inception, Étant donnés has developed an international reputation by allocating over $3 million to fund more than 300 projects and 30 curators.
