The Centre Culturel Irlandais is delighted to announce the recipients of its 2015-16 programme of residencies. 22 artists across the spectrum of artistic backgrounds will spend from one month to three months in Paris to develop their proposed projects, which range from composing a multi-violin composition influenced by the Paris Metro system to an exploration of queer narratives and queer cultures in Paris. This year sees CCI partnering three Irish arts organisations for the first time in the awarding of a design residency (Design Crafts Council of Ireland – DCCoI), a music residency (Music Network) and a composer’s residency (Contemporary Music Centre).
Artists in residence have been appointed on an annual basis since the Centre Culturel Irlandais was inaugurated in October 2002. Through the residencies and its diverse cultural programme, the Centre Culturel Irlandais showcases Ireland’s dynamic contemporary culture on an international stage.
Recipients of the visual artist residencies are: Susan McWilliam, Alan Phelan, Padraig Spillane, Corban Walker and Tom Watt.
Special projects residencies are awarded to: Corinna Askin and Softday (Sean Taylor and Mikael Fernstrom).
The design residency was awarded to: Joe Hogan in association with DCCoI
