Created in 2011 in Clermont-Ferrand, France, Artistes en résidence is a non-profit organization which supports contemporary creation by organizing residencies for artists and researchers in contemporary art. We support the international mobility of artists and the circulation of ideas and know-how, through the development of a vast network of local, national and international partners.
Artists are at the heart of the A·R’s project. Our team offers them curatorial support and provides them with spaces as well as human, technical and financial resources. A·R understands residencies as a period entirely dedicated to research and experimentation, with no obligation to produce. This orientation intends to provide artists with the necessary time for qualitative and in-depth research, to promote a real immersion in the territory and to allow all the trial and error, detours and critical questioning necessary for the development of their art practice.
A·R considers the international dimension and what it allows in terms of travel, personal development and openness to other practices and cultures, the notion of hospitality being primordial to the project. Fostering meetings and exchanges, A·R’s team puts artists in residence in touch with art professionals, researchers, associations, artisans or anyone who can help to develop their artistic research, on the local, national and international scales.
Artistes en résidence is currently building a partnership with the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe and the École Supérieure d’art de Clermont Métropole in order to initiate a residency for graduate artists from both schools.

Bruno Silva is artist and co-coordinator of Artistes en résidence since 2014.
