Etant Donnés: French-American Fund for Contemporary Art

      Étant donnés Contemporary Art aims to strengthen ties between France and the U.S. in the field of contemporary art by fostering active collaboration and encouraging long-lasting partnerships between French visual artists, curators and collectives and American curators and cultural institutions. The fund supports the discovery of emerging talents, while also sustaining interest in established artists. Furthermore, it has been instrumental in creating a network of curators from France and the U.S. Since its inception, Étant donnés has developed an international reputation by allocating over $3 million to fund more than 300 projects and 16 curators.

      Over the past 20 years, the art world has profoundly evolved. Étant donnés seeks to embrace new practices and enable different approaches to creation in contemporary art, to include projects that draw on the visual arts, design, architecture, and performance. Étant donnés aims to support ambitious projects, with high priority given to coproductions, new commissions, and projects that can be developed across several cities in the U.S.

      To this end, and with the aim of introducing French visual artists whose works have rarely, if ever, been shown in the United States, the fund supports projects at three levels. Financial support is granted to American nonprofit institutions to organize exhibitions, installations, or research projects featuring French artists; a curatorial fellowship assists American curators, either independent or affiliated with institutions, who wish to conduct research in France; and a residency program supports French visual artists seeking to develop specific projects with American partners.
