With Mon Artist et moi,
Support an artist in his everyday life

"YOU'RE NOT BORN AS A PATRON, YOU BECOME ONE"

 A new form of patronage based on an enriching human exchange between artist and patron.
An agreement signed between the artist and his patron for a minimum period of one year .

The association, #MonArtisteEtMoi, aims to support the everyday life of artists while allowing a patron to live a rich experience by supporting an artist for a year or more.

The idea of this new form of support was born during the health crisis that is currently affecting the entire planet and has shown the precariousness of certain social groups and in particular artists whose economic situation in normal times is already fragile.

We are proposing a new form of patronage that tends to relieve artists of the inherent costs related to the charges represented by the rent of a studio or apartment, but also electricity, insurance, etc…but also specific artistic projects.

This form of aid is not intended to help with the production of a work or the organization of an exhibition, as these are already offered in many forms. Here we are talking about an accompaniment that contributes to the vital comfort of the artist. By trying to relieve him of these unavoidable expenses, we allow him to devote himself serenely to creation.

This form of sponsorship over one year is also a link between two worlds that are affiliated together but who do not always meet. One is opening its personal or professional network to an artist, the other one offers the patron the possibility to share and discover what the real life of an artist is. An extraordinary human adventure, a sharing between two individuals.

The godmother of the association

matali crasset supports the association in its development and her constructive advice by sharing her experience and transmitting her knowledge. Her eclectic universe which extends from art to crafts, electronic music to the textile industry or even fair trade corresponds entirely to the open-mindedness of this association. We are deeply grateful for her support.

The Patron

  • The Patron chooses an artist from a selection suggested by #MonArtisteEtMoi. This choice is the basis of the support. It is essential that the sponsor is convinced of the artistic line of the artist in order to create a real complicity, a dialogue and therefore a real exchange.
  • Possibility to support several artists.
  • One-year agreement between the patron and the artist, to help the artist in his everyday life.
    • The artist offers his patron a recognition in form of a proof of his commitment to him at the end of the agreement. It is important that the sponsor is able to keep a record of this time spent with the artist. This can take various forms, to be determined or presented at the moment of signing the agreement.

    The Artist

    • To be eligible for #MonArtisteEtMoi, the artist must justify an unstable and difficult situation. Under no circumstances may the artist work regularly and/or permanently with a company.
    • The artist agrees to grant his patron free access to his studio within reasonable limits. The exact rights are defined in the agreement.
    • The artist will sign an agreement with his patron. He may have several sponsors.
    • At the end of the sponsorship, the artist is agrees to thank the patron for his commitment by means of a gesture which can take various forms and which must be taken into account when signing the contract.

    Thank you for your generous support

    The current curfew has put a stop on all cultural events. This puts artists and their art in a very difficult situation because an important part of their creative process is to show the fruits of their work to the public.

    To oppose this, a Facebook & Instagram page, called “ART STUDIO VIEWING”, has been launched to allow artists to show their studio. Depending on the situation, it may be their studio at home or their temporary studio that they have set up spontaneously.

    The artists film their own studios and present their work in a video of a few minutes.A visit of an artist’s studio by an artist himself is always very emotional, as the viewer steps into the intimacy and the core of artistic creativity. There are as many forms of studios as there are artists, and these, personalized by their presence and their work, function as a kind of self-portrait.

    The studio videos presented here, filmed by the artists themselves, reflect multiple meanings: What does the artist show in his studio, what does it say about him, with which linguistic elements and in which form.

    The videos of the artist on facebook

    ART STUDIO VIEWING also offers "Les ateliers du lundi" (The Monday Studios), where archive videos of artists' studios that are part of the art-history of the 20th and 21st centuries are shown every week.

    In addition on Fridays, statements by collectors, gallery owners or cultural institutions will enrich and complete the theme with "Les Vernissages du Vendredi" (The Vernissages on Friday).
