Artagon. Project dedicated to European art students and young artists
Artagon is a non-profit project dedicated to European art students and young artists. Its purpose is to explore, bring together and support their ideas and practices towards a global audience. Founded in 2014 in Paris by Anna Labouze & Keimis Henni, Artagon is run with the contribution of Marine Gracies, Ségolène Souloy, Alexandre Reverdito, Basil Isitt, Alexis Bourély, François Parmantier and Luna Blanchard.
Born from the will to support young artists in their fledgling career, its activity revolved until now around the “international exhibition of art school students”. This event − a world premiere − gathered every year more than 30 artists chosen by an international jury in a selection of schools, with a focus on an European region.
In four editions 90 jury members visited 35 European art schools and discovered the works of 850 students, 150 of them have been exhibited in Paris. The exhibitions brought together more than 50,000 visitors and offered many opportunities for the artists.
Artagon Live 2019
invites you to join young European artists during 13 evenings made of performances, interactive installations, video projections, sound works, talks, workshops, concerts and DJ sets. The event brings together 50 young artists already presented by Artagon, as well as collectives and musicians from across the continent.
Entirely dedicated to spontaneous, ephemeral and performative artistic practices, Artagon Live is experimenting with a new format, between exhibition, artist residency and festival. A laboratory that shows art being made, while putting it in dialogue with music, party and concerns driving youth in Europe. These evenings are set in Villa Radet, a warm and intimate house surrounded by a wide garden. It is the second Parisian venue of the Cité internationale des arts, located in the heart of Montmartre, historical cradle of bohemian life and avant-garde.
