Villa Vassilieff

The Pernod Ricard Fellowship


Pernod Ricard, Villa Vassilieff’s leading sponsor, has joined forces with Villa Vassilieff to create the Pernod Ricard Fellowship: a grant aimed at sup­porting four inter­na­tional artists, cura­tors and researchers in res­i­dence every year.

ThePernod Ricard Fellowship is con­ceived as a plat­form for artistic research ded­i­cated to the exper­i­men­ta­tion of both non-linear models of cre­ation and knowl­edge dis­tri­bu­tion between researchers, con­tem­po­rary artists, cul­tural insti­tu­tions, non-profit orga­ni­za­tions and the gen­eral public.

Selected by an inter­na­tional com­mittee con­sisting of ten mem­bers, four fellows are invited to spend three months in res­i­dency within a refur­bished his­tor­ical studio at the Villa Vassilieff. It is a unique oppor­tu­nity for these artists and researchers to enhance their vision and to focus on their own work or any other pro­jects. Reflecting the cos­mopolitan iden­tity and con­vivial atmo­sphere of the former studio of Marie Vassilieff, the Fellows will enjoy bespoke sup­port from researchers and art pro­fes­sionals, along with access to a rich net­work of insti­tu­tions in France and abroad, such as the Centre Pompidou (a long­standing partner of Pernod Ricard and Bétonsalon – Center for Art and Research) and the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, a partner in the pro­ject.

The Pernod Ricard Fellows will also ben­efit from numerous research pro­grams focusing on unex­plored resources, devel­oped by Villa Vassilieff in col­lab­o­ra­tion with museums, public and pri­vate archives, as well as uni­ver­si­ties and art schools. Lastly, the Fellows will enjoy a dynamic events pro­gramme at Villa Vassilieff, offering var­ious options for con­ducting new inves­ti­ga­tions and col­lecting mul­tiple nar­ra­tives of our glob­al­ized world.
