L´Expressoir / ACEA

Name of Residency: L’Expressoir

L’Expressoir invites emerging and established artists of all disciplines for a time and space away from their usual environments. We provide an opportunity for artists to reflect, research, create, and present in the small, rural village of Marnay Sur Seine, France.
L´Expressoir allows regional, national, and international artists the opportunity to exchange professional and emotive approaches towards new experiences and aesthetic realities. Located in the historic village of Marnay Sur Seine (1 hour by train from Paris) L´Expressoir emphasizes the connection between the local community and the diverse artists this village attracts. This residency encourages projects promoting the interaction and relationships between different cultures worldwide.
