Created by the Montresso* Art Foundation, the artistic residency Jardin Rouge supports and accompanies for nearly ten years the research of international artists. Eight studios allow to welcome nearly thirty artists per cultural season, in a preserved environment, conducive to experimentation and dialogue. Focused on the theme of territories, Jardin Rouge is a creative laboratory in which artists benefit from research time but also help with visibility.
The artists residency Jardin Rouge is a meeting place between art and its amateurs. Presentations of projects are regularly organized within the «Helmet Room». The artists exchange, discuss with the public, answer interviews with journalists, decipher their works with art critics.
Some of the works created by the artists during these residencies are offered for sale to collectors Friends of the Montresso* Art Foundation. The funds raised in this way, added to the foundation’s endowments, are used to finance the programmes and projects of Jardin Rouge.
