During Winter 2023, thankyouforcoming launches an open call for applications for 1 art critic and/or
curator, for a 3-week residency between 13 April and 14 May 2023.
This residency program allows the residents – through meetings, visits to artists’ studios, time for exchanges
– to discover the French Riviera area’s contemporary art scene, to develop their research work and to
participate in a new network.
The purpose of thankyouforcoming’s residencies is to foster links and collaborations between its local art
ecosystem and international artists, curators, art critics, institutions, galleries etc at a national and
international scale.


1 residency period of 21 consecutive days for the selected candidate is available between 13 April and 14

May 2023 (stay to be scheduled in agreement with thankyouforcoming).
