Suite programme 2021

In partnership with ADAGP
Programme Suite 2021

The 7th edition of Suite programme, initiated by the CNAP, in partnership with the ADAGP, gives continued support to a selection of projects from artists who have benefited from support for artistic project beyond their research phase. In association with locations managed by artists or curators anxious to renew curator practices, the Suite programme therefore enables artists to try out their ideas in the real setting of an exhibition.

Suite Programme: supporting the artists

These exhibition spaces, forming part of a network of cultural outreach over the nation and real artistic staging posts, take account of every form of current writing and creation. In this way they contribute to an inter-disciplinary and de-compartmentalised way of looking at contemporary art, in the fashion of the Suite programme.

Taking account of the experimental nature of the projects it supports, the Cnap initiated this new programme to make possible significant exhibitions of the diversity of the research and creation. Suite tends to develop mutually stimulating views of methods of producing and manufacturing works. It therefore makes it possible to bring to light new innovative projects, and to encourage new artistic and curating practices.

In order to set up these projects, in 2021 the Cnap joined forces with four places oriented towards emerging art and experimentation: Zone i in Thoré-la-Rochette, Minoterie21 in Peillac, Zébra3 in Bordeaux, Station Culturelle in Fort-de-France and Idem+arts in Maubeuge. It also gives continued support to artists who have benefited from support for artistic research/production.
