The Fondation FIMINCO will open its doors in Fall 2019 in Romainville, just east of Paris (Seine-Saint-Denis) in a former pharmaceutical factory. The Fondation FIMINCO is a contemporary art space focused on international cross-disciplinary visual art through a program of residencies, exhibitions, performances, encounters and workshops.
For several decades now, the international contemporary art scene has been undergoing a deep transformation, that has retraced new geographies of art across the world and given rise to artistic forms with multidisciplinary sources and approaches. The Fondation FIMINCO aims to support emerging and established artists worldwide by drawing from this plural cartography and constantly evolving artistic diversity.
The Fondation FIMINCO is launching its call for applications until May 31, 2019 to transdisciplinary visual artists of any age from across the world for a residency in research, creation, and production based in Romainville.
Its main focus is the anchoring of research and creation in current socio-political issues, from the local to the international level. Supporting artists to develop their work and project in specific contexts on the territory will also be at the heart of the dynamics of the Fondation.
The residency's goal is also to build bridges between different art scenes and give artists the opportunity to confront their work to a variety of cultural, political, and social contexts, in order to enrich their practices and encourage the exchange of ideas.
Alexandra Baudelot, artistic director of the Fondation Fiminco, will come to present the project of the Fondation and residencies at the Théodore Monod Museum.
