Villa Vassilieff

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.

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.
