Each year, the artist residency will create more connections between photographic production, contemporary art and the public.
The Mougins area and its local residents, its status within 7 the metropolitan community of Cannes Pays de Lérins and the Sophia Antipolis technology hub, and its relations with neighboring towns, will all be at the heart of the concerns shaping the artist residency. By testifying to the diversity of photographic practices, the works of local residents will challenge the identity of this ever-changing and constantly redefined territory, bringing genuine added value to the region’s culture and tourism policies.
The ambition, year upon year, is to showcase, to exhibit and to collect moments and layers of real life in Mougins. The photographic residency will take place at a site annexed to the Center of Photography, in what is now the Espace Culturel. The winning candidates will be selected by a jury made up of professionals and representatives from the municipality and the Ministry of Culture (DRAC). Candidates will be put forward by the joint directors of the Center.
