« Some of Us », winner of the Connexion 2018 grant, presented in the French Pavilion of Nord Art (Germany)
Part of the international exhibition NordArt, Eternal Network presents its exhibition "Some of Us" which was supported by the Connexion Grant 2018. Gathered as a generational panorama, the artwork of a hundred female artists shine French scene.
For twenty years, the NordArt festival welcomed annually some 300 artists from around the world. Jérôme Cotinet - Alphaize, curator, and Marianne Derrien, associate curator inaugurated this year the French Pavilion and deployed "a historical, retrospective and prospective panorama of more than a hundred living artists in France"
"Some of us" offers through this panorama a "societal position" on two generations of women artists.
This exhibition is a major export of the French scene. That's the reason why this project - which was presented by the Eternal Network for the Connexion 2018 grant - particularly appealed to the jury of the ADAGP cultural committee.
This jury composed of artists Hervé Di Rosa, Eva Jospin, Gaël Charbau (art critic and curator), Philippe Régnier (Editorial Director of THE ART NEWSPAPER), Valérie Vesque-Jeancard (Honorary Director General Rmn-GP) and Béatrice Salmon (Deputy Director for the Visual Arts at the Ministry of Culture) awarded a grant worth 30,000 euros to the project
Connexion Grant 2019
Organizing an exhibition abroad is a complex and expensive operation. ADAGP is aware that few French dissemination organizations do not have the means to carry out such projects.
Two Connexion annual grants, of € 30,000 each, support thus these French broadcast venues to materialize an international co-production project or the resumption of exhibitions abroad. These grants aims to maximize the influence of the work of French artists and create as many connections as possible between French institutions and their foreign counterparts.
The 2019 Connexion Grant application is now open and we invite you to read the application conditions
