ACROSS #19 – October 2018

La 4ème saison de la résidence ACROSS s’ouvre avec un format inédit : 6 commissaires d’exposition et critiques d’art sont accueilli.e.s simultanément à Nice : Chloé Angiolini & Elodie Castaldo (La Balnéaire), Chloé Curci, Juliette Desorgues, Guilhem Monceaux et Estelle Nabeyrat.
Bien loin de la course aux chiffres, c’est l’expérience d’une résidence collective partagée que nous souhaitons mettre à l’épreuve avec ce 19ème opus.
Chacune et chacun des résident.e.s que nous vous présentons ci-après a répondu à l’appel à candidatures de thankyouforcoming les années précédentes. La pertinence et l’originalité de leurs démarches nous ont incité à les réunir pour ce lancement de saison, sur l’alibi de leur inscription géographique dans un grand Sud (Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, Lisbonne).

Chloé Curci (1986, Marseille, France) is graduated of MFA Fine Arts Photo­graphy & Video (2012) and obtained BFA in Art & Space ENSAD (2009), Paris. Since 2011 she is the co-director of the publishing & curatorial platform Manuel. 
She worked for Air de Paris Gallery for almost three years (2011 – 2013) and then for Triangle France in Marseille (2013 ­- 2015). In 2015 she has been selected for the curatorial training program at the Ecole du Magasin in Grenoble to integrate the 25th session. As a member of Label Famille’s collective she has co-curated their first show for the opening of their new studio in January 2017. She recently finished a one year mission (february 2017 – may 2018) for the gallery POC in Marseille as artistic director and development coordinator.
Simultaneously continuing a practice as a visual artist and independent curator, she accumulated multifaceted projects and experiences. She bridge the gaps of partitioned disciplines ; she strives to blast the traditional dichotomies, witch are still present between the artist and the curator, the artwork and the publication, the exhibition and the de-materialization, the occupation and the vacancy, the serious search and the cool attitude. 

Juliette Desorgues is an independent curator, writer and editor based in France and the UK.
She recently co-edited a publication on the work of Australian artist Helen Johnson (co-published by ICA, London and Artspace, Sydney, 2018) and curated the group exhibition ‘Hypersea’, artmonte-carlo, April 2018. She is currently curating a group exhibition for Damien and the Love Guru gallery, Brussels, January 2019. She previously worked as Associate Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (ICA), where she curated a number of exhibitions, commissions and events including ‘in formation’ (2017); ‘Helen Johnson: Warm Ties’ (2017); ‘The Things that Make you Sick: Loraine Leeson and Peter Dunn 1977-1980′ (2017); ‘Bloomberg New Contemporaries’ (2016 and 2015), ‘Yuri Pattison: mute conversation’ (2014). Prior to this, Desorgues held curatorial positions at the Barbican Art Gallery, London and Generali Foundation, Vienna. She studied Art History at the University of Edinburgh, the University of Vienna and University College London.

Chloé Angiolini et Elodie Castaldo (1992, Nice, France) are the co-founders of the collective La Balnéaire.
Taking actions at the border between curating, artistic creation and cultural mediation, La Balnéaire is experimenting the existing links between these different fields through collaborative projects: exhibitions, publications, interventions, events. Based in Marseille, the collective is nomadic and “stays” punctually in various artistic and cultural places. The hybrid status and diversified network of La Balnéaire enable to build multidisciplinary proposals, focused on experimentation. Chloé and Elodie participated in residency programmes at the Holyrad Studio (NY) and Villa Arson (Nice). In 2017, the collective took part of the first two episodes of Inventeurs d’Aventures at La Friche Belle de Mai (Marseille) and Villa Arson (Nice). In 2018, La Balnéaire curated EXTEMPO at HLM gallery (Marseille), as part of the programme “Où en tournée”.
Recently, they participated in the exhibition +33644909458 curated by Post Disaster Residencies at the Stadium de Vitrolles and MN_02, a project curated by Media Naranja on the Goudes beach (Marseille).

Guilhem Monceaux (1987, France) works as an art curator.
His projects, as an independent or in a collective, are often concerned about pedagogical processes and drawing. The last exhibition he curated in 2018 in Copenhagen, Rummet, consisted in a collaboration with four artists, who built together a temporary architecture that occupied the space and held the works together.
Guilhem Monceaux is currently working at Frac Champagne-Ardenne in Reims, after being assistant curator at Triangle France, Marseille, between 2016 and 2018.  Prior to this, he worked for Temple Productions where he coordinated conferences for the Centre Pompidou and the 12th Dakar Biennale (among others). He was also assistant curator for the 10th Bamako Encounters in 2015 and for the art centre LACE in Los Angeles in 2014. 

Estelle Nabeyrat (1978, France) is a curator and an art critic.
She lives between Paris and Lisbon where she runs a project called πνεῦμα (#pneumalisboa).
Graduated in Art History and Social Sciences (University of Leipzig, Ehess), she took part to the curatorial program of Ecole du Magasin. She worked as an assistant and then as Head of International Affairs and Education at the Akademie der Bildende Künste Wien, L’Ensba Lyon, l’Esad Reims, l’Ecole du Magasin Grenoble and also as a producer for the Studio Calzolari in Lisbon and Performa 15 Biennial NYC…
She was a curator in residency at la box Ensba Bourges, Palais de Tokyo and Capacete Rio de Janeiro where she studied the concept of anthropophagie. She recently curated shows at Museu da Republicà Rio de Janeiro, Neuer Achner Kunstverein, Quadrado Azul Lisbon. She is currently a guest curator at Cnap in relation to the collection and she has been recently collaborating with artist Eva Barto on a radio program for *DUUU about rights for art workers.
