The (He)art for (He)art program includes:
_ an artist's residency, The (He)art residency, in Nice.
_ an exhibition space, The (He)art House, showing worldwide artists.
_ a program, the (He)art program, that will guide collector's, art critics and curators thru our most famous cultural's places to discover or rediscover our beautiful French Riviera.
_ a yearly contest offering a 2 months residency stay, The (He)art prize, made of a national and international professional jury.
_ a lab space, The (He)art lab, offering all creatives (furniture designers, writers, chefs...) a place to hang out, exchange ideas and innovate.
Our Artist's residency aims to reconnect the South of France with international contemporary artists, to offer them a new inspirational program and the opportunity to create a new body of work.
The French Riviera has hosted for decades major names, artists like Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso, Leger, Miro, Chagall, Matisse, Cocteau, Klein, Tinguely, De Saint Phalle, Arman, Ben, Cesar and many more.
In line with their predecessors, emerging and established international artists will be able to stay in a unique place, entirely dedicated to creation.
In direct connection with the local culture, they will have the opportunity to discover the rich heritage of Nice and its department, even crossing the Italian borders from Cannes to Bordighera, conducive to new plastic research.
You can support the program by making donations to The (He)art for (He)art Program association.
