Creativity stands as one of the most effective tools to face the complexity of global challenges since it allows for redesigning and transforming our societies. From this perspective, it is of great importance that we foster a renewed dialogue between science and arts, the two dominant creative forces of society. Their role has always been that of understanding the world we live in and projecting us into the future. Art that experiments with new technologies is a tremendous engine for technological, social, economic and scientific innovation.
With this in mind, Sony CSL Paris launched a call for application in partnership with Fondation Fiminco and the European S+T+ARTS (Science, Technology & the Arts) program. The call is aimed at visual artists of all disciplines, from all over the world, to undertake a residency (creative research and production). The framework of this residency is: ‘Urban mobility: exploring new imaginaries’. The selected artist will undertake a 5-month residency—from January to May 2021—shared between Fondation Fiminco, located in Romainville (Seine-Saint-Denis), and the Sony CSL laboratory, located in Paris.
The deadline for submitting applications is October 15, 2020.
