JADA PARIS ART WEEK EXHIBIT & ART SUMMIT
ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM

October 19th–  30th

        art for art’s sake?!

 The 2020 JADA PARIS ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM

Invites U.S. Artists and French English-speaking residents to engage in a highly immersive cultural experience in Paris, France. The program will focus on strengthening each participating artist’s personal art practice, career development, and conceptual understanding of being an artist in the 2020s.

The program will encourage a multi-layered conversation on the demise of l’art pour l’art (art for art’s sake). It will consist of daily art studio sessions, art critiques, theoretical discussions, professional career consulting, and networking opportunities with art industry leaders from Paris and the United States. The program will also focus on the social aspects of creating lasting bonds among artists and art collectives, by promoting togetherness via creative collaborations, meaningful experiences (meal sharing, art tours, sightseeing, wine and food tasting events), and more.

The program will culminate in a group art exhibit in Paris, which will showcase the works of all participating artists. All exhibiting artists will be featured in the 2020 JADA Paris Art Exhibit Catalog and will be given preference opportunity to showcase work to exhibit at the JADA Paris Art Week Exhibit from October 20th – 25th, and at the JADA Miami Art Week Exhibit from December 5th – 8th. JADA represents a murmuring artistic voice of the second decade of the 21st century, as it rises to challenge the hegemony of the establishment, to transform the perception of art in society, and to occupy meaningful spaces in the macrocosm of the 2020s.
If you identify with any of these ideals, you are JADA too!
