Founded in 2018 by Francisca Viudes, a modern and contemporary art advisor for private collectors & institutions, The (He)art for (He)art Program is a non-profit organisation conceived as an intimate encounter with art.
The program is dedicated to invite collectors, art critiques, curators and international reknowned artists to mingle and discover the area. Our Artist's residency aims to reconnect the South of France with international contemporary artists to offer them an inspirational program and the opportunity to create a new body of work. Behind the closed walls of a hotel particulier in Nice, a rare setup typical of the French Riviera with picturesque gardens welcomes 5 residencies and exhibitions a year. Internationally renowned artists : Reynier Leyva Novo : “Venice Biennale 2017”; and recognized peers : Hilal Sami Hilal, “Galeria Marilia Razuk”, Hilario Isola : “Guido Costa”; currently make up the curatorial line of an initiative meant for exploration.
The (He)art for (He)art Program gets its inspiration from the rich art legacy found between the French and Italian Riviera. Monet, Renoir, Matisse, Picasso, Nikki de Saint Phalle, Arman, Cesar and Yves Klein are just a few to mention.
We are pleased to invite you and share the outcome of this very unique collaboration through talks with our guests, open artist's studio, exhibitions and other events happening all year long.
