Villa Albertine is elevating arts and ideas with its residency program in the United States. Through this program created by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, and supported by the French Ministry of Culture, artists, thinkers and cultural professionals participate in residencies and collaborate with American cultural institutions in 10 major U.S. cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.
Writer and filmaker Céline Tricart is a resident of the Villa in Washington, D.C. who is working with the National Gallery of Art. She specializes in the use of new technology for bold, powerful storytelling, and in the promotion of women’s talents in film-making. Tricart’s work has been showcased at many major festivals, including Sundance, Venice, Tribeca, SXSW, and HotDocs, and has won many prizes. During her residency at Villa Albertine, she will be developing Constellations, an XR journey through the impressionist collections of the National Gallery of Art.
Representatives of the French-American Cultural Foundation were honored to attend a Villa Albertine launch event featuring Céline Tricart at the French Ambassador’s residence in Washington, D.C. in December, and we look forward to meeting and collaborating with participants of the program in the future.
