Ecole nationale supérieure des beaux-arts Fine Arts Postgraduate Programme
The two-years Research Programme La Seine is aimed at emerging artists, whether they be French or foreign, who have completed a Master degree (European Standard), or equivalent. The Program offers such students the opportunity to develop artistic projects, that they have already begun work on, in a professional context. Its position within the &EACUTE;cole allows participants to make the most of the rich, varied approaches and artistic practices available at the &EACUTE;cole.
Since 2009, this research programme proposes, in addition to the technical and critical support in direction of the artistic practice, a theoretical approach of the student research and a professional implantation of the artistic work. At the end of this two-years programme, each student proposes an exhibition in a professional site, accompanied by a publication, to obtain the research degree.
The Program's educational approach hinges on the exchange of knowledge and skills involved in artistic thought and practice. In addition to broadening students' knowledge, the program is organized in such a way as to ensure that they do their creative work in professional conditions. The group dynamic and interactive nature of the program encourage artists to "compare notes" on their individual studio practices and exercise their critical faculties together. A research seminar, Meetings with accomplished artists and professional practitioners of contemporary art and an individual critical support are a stimulating, enriching experience for emerging artists.
Deadline for applications is 7 June 2010.
