Selection committee

Artists selection

The documentary collection represents more than a hundred artists to date. The commitment of the team in an editorial work with each artist allows the realization of ten new files per year and twenty updates on average. The website concerns professional artists, visual artists or designers, living and working in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. Their production must be sufficiently committed for a thorough documentation to be devoted to them.

Selection committee

Once a year, a selection committee is invited to determine the artists who will integrate the site the following year. This jury, renewed each year by part, is composed of various professionals of the art (artists, curators, managers of places of diffusion, institutionals, collectors, critics...) which contribute to building the quality and diversity of the documentary collection.

The last committee was held in September 2022, in the presence of the following jury members:

  • Sophie Auger-Grappin, director of Creux de l'enfer, Art center of Thiers

  • Fabienne Ballandras, artist and teacher at Ensba Lyon

  • Xavier Jullien, director of Art center of Vénissieux

  • Thomas Kocek, visual arts advisor, Ministry of Culture - DRAC Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes

  • Bertrand Riou, director of CACN - Art center of Nîmes

  • Gunther Ludwig, curator, critic and teacher at ESAD Orléans

  • Ariane Réquin, independent consultant of artistic projects, Lyon

  • Claire Viallat, critic and teacher at ESAA Annecy
