artshock, the Pépinières européennes pour jeunes artistes' newsletter

Launched last July, the mapXXL programme reveals a new generation of artists inventing tomorrow’s forms of expression. Its first laureates are already succeeding in their projects, like Gayle Chong Kwan, who is going to realize in Venice a work initiated during her four-months residency in Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto. Furthermore, Angelo Sturiale is going to Japan for a one-year residency, David Rolland orchestrated the opening ball of the Bordeaux’s TNT season, Justine Triet, Donald Abad and Aurélie Slonina’s works are exposed at the Bellevilloise and Ayelen Parolin’s at the Fondation Cartier. All these young artists reveal their desire for travelling and a real curiosity for the other. Cultural diversities are nourishing the projects they develop and make the quality of their productions. The Pepinieres’ actuality consists also in our participation at the Res Artis conference in Berlin, probably one of the most important and active artistic networks concerning creative venues. Several Asian structures’ representatives will participate in this conference. This will allow us to pursue our opening into the direction of these countries, rich, as we believe, in unexpected propositions. All these news seem promising to us and we want to share them with you in this new version of Artshock.
