Glasgow Sculpture Studios and Triangle France Marseille have established an artist exchange programme that enables Glasgow based artists and creative practitioners to work, share practice and learn new skills in France, whilst allowing artists based in France the same experience in Scotland.
This exchange is designed for artists who are at the beginning of their career and who have left full time education or equivalent within the last five years, providing an opportunity to emergent artists.
The current recipient of this award from Marseille is Estel Fonseca.
The current recipient of this award from Glasgow is Adam Lewis Jacob.
Triangle France is a non-profit contemporary arts organization, based at “La Friche Belle de Mai”, a former tobacco factory located in the city center of Marseilles. Triangle France aims to promote the emerging international art scene through a challenging and experimental program of artist’s residencies, exhibitions, events, new commissions, and publications. Triangle France supports the production and presentation of new forms of artistic activity and aims to create dynamic relationships between art, artists, and audiences both locally and internationally.
Since its founding in 1995, Triangle France has established itself as one of France’s most innovative organizations supporting artists at a formative point in their career. Triangle France supports emerging artists as well as artists that are under-represented in France by collaborating with them in the development, production and presentation of important new projects that enable them to take new steps in their careers.
