Villa Vassilieff, a new cultural establishment owned by the City of Paris, opened its doors on February 2016 in the heart of Montparnasse, on the site of Marie Vassilieff’s former studio, which until 2013 housed the Musée du Montparnasse.
Contacts & Details
Villa Vassilieff is run by Bétonsalon — Center for art and research, which is thus opening its second site of activities. Villa Vassilieff is conceived as a place for working and living, where to stimulate the blossoming of ideas, encounters and the sharing of knowledge. Through exhibitions, seminars, workshops, projections and encounters of all kinds, the Villa strives to shake up art’s place in society in particular by questioning the role and uses of heritage.
Pernod Ricard, its leading sponsor, has joined forces with Villa Vassilieff to create the Pernod Ricard Fellowship: a grant aimed at supporting four international artists, curators and researchers in residence every year in the Villa’s studio.
