Centre International d’Art et du Paysage

Centre International d’Art et du Paysage


In addition to the production of works and exhibitions, the International Centre international d’art du paysage  has, since 2012, organised a programme of ten artistic residencies each year in the castle on Vassivière island, refurbished by the architects Berger & Berger and Building/Building. The unique history of the Vassivière landscape, the resources that the art centre can offer in terms of art, architecture and landscape, and the high level of initiatives generated by local citizens associations from the Plateau de Millevaches, stimulates experimentation and thoughtful reflexion for creative projects inspired by an area far from urban centres, at the same time protected from and influenced by industrial uses.

Each season, which consists of 4 months, welcomes three residents at the same time who can collaborate if they wish.


Centre d'art reserves the right to ask the resident to participate in public meetings organized by the Centre d'Art as part of its mediation activities (cultural actions and educational actions) around his work as an artist and his project of residence on the island of Vassivière.
