Revisiting the Roaring Twenties 1920 / 2020: Art, Culture and the Ecole de Paris
The location of our residency, Montparnasse, is known as a historic hub for international artists, writers, performers, and musicians working and living alongside each other in this prominent artistic neighbourhood of the French capital. Artists came to Montparnasse from all over the world, from Europe, including Italy, Spain, Russia, Hungary and the Ukraine, from the United States, Canada and Mexico, Central and South America, and from as far away as Japan. Montparnasse became famous as the heart of intellectual and artistic life in the 1920s, a safe haven for international artists during the interwar period of Ecole de Paris, referred to as Les Années Folles, or the Roaring Twenties.
The year 2020 marks the 100th Anniversary of this prolific period of intercultural artistic exchange. To commemorate its legacy, in January 2020 L’AiR Arts is pleased to offer a multidisciplinary residency for artists and cultural professionals dedicated to the celebration of intercultural exchange through the arts and the realization of a series of open and inclusive cultural events, including open studios, talks and showcases – each built on the generosity of the Paris based artists and cultural professionals and the curiosity and solidarity of international arts community.
The idea of this residency is to revisit and develop the open and creative energy of the 1920s as well as the spirit of solidarity and unity that allowed arts community to thrive in the heart of Europe. During the residency period, artists will exchange ideas with their fellow residents from other countries, participate in relevant professional development events and showcase their work. The goals of this residency is not only to highlight the important role that international artistic community have played in Paris during the 20th Century inter-war period, but also to support international dialogue today.
This residency is open to artists and cultural professionals working in all art disciplines, including but not limited to visual arts, music, dance, theatre and literature. Application deadline September 15, 2019. For more information and to apply visit our website.
