The nomadic curatorial residency

The nomadic curatorial residency set up by Arts en résidence – Réseau national since 2016, and of which thankyouforcoming is a member, regularly offers a curator or art critic the opportunity to be hosted in several structures of the network during different stays.
This project is to be considered as a residency of meetings and connections with many actors of the different territories, and for which each structure acts as a facilitating intermediary. The aim is to meet and dialogue with the local scene, in the variety of contexts offered by each of the venues.

Ninon Duhamel, resident ACROSS #35

Living between Paris and Lille, Ninon Duhamel is a freelance curator and art critic. She has been working for several years in many different art institutions in France, as head of art programs or in charge of exhibition production. She is also developping a freelance and personnal activity of writing and research, focusing on language in contremporary art. She is particularly interested in the way artists use forms and medias such as orality, writing, translation, singing, narration… – using this as a common topic of her texts and exhibition projects, in order to point and question social, cultural, historical and political issues.
After she curated « À Voix haute », her first group show in 2020 at La Graineterie, contemporary art center of Houilles, she is is currently preparing a new exhibition entitled « TELLING STORIES » which will take place at Tanspalette, contemporary art center of Bourges in early 2023, approaching questions of fiction, narration, imaginary and reality.

At the occasion of this Curatorial nomadic Residency – a first experience for her – Ninon Duhamel will meet a lot of artists and art professionals, living and working in Provence, Côte d’Azur and Occitanie regions. All along these two months of residency, she will combine times of meetings and conversations in order to discover these new artistic scene and their ecosystems, with some times of writing and research, dedicated to her new artistic project focused on letters, correspondence and long-distance communication.

She will be hosted by 4 members of the Arts in Residence network from early September to late October: Maison Salvan (Labège-Toulouse), le Centre d’arts Fernand Léger (Port de Bouc), MEMENTO (Auch), and thankyouforcoming (Nice et Côte d’Azur).
