Villa Vassilieff

Villa Vassilieff, a cul­tural estab­lish­ment owned by the City of Paris, is located in the heart of Montparnasse, on the site of Marie Vassilieff’s former studio, which until 2013 housed the Musée du Montparnasse. It is run by Bétonsalon — Center for art and research, which is thus opening its second site of activ­i­ties. Villa Vassilieff is con­­ceived as a place for working and living, where to stim­u­late the blos­­soming of ideas, encoun­ters and the sharing of knowl­­edge.

Villa Vassilieff has wit­nessed over a cen­tury of his­tory and rep­re­sents an out­standing cul­tural her­itage. Today, Villa Vassilieff intends to recon­nect with this his­tory by inviting artists and researchers to look at past and pre­sent resources of Montparnasse from a con­tem­po­rary per­spec­tive. Through exhi­bi­tions, sem­i­nars, work­shops, pro­jec­tions and encoun­ters of all kinds, the Villa strives to shake up art’s place in society in par­tic­ular by ques­tioning the role and uses of her­itage.

Pernod Ricard, its leading sponsor, has joined forces with Villa Vassilieff to create the Pernod Ricard Fellowship: a grant aimed at sup­porting four inter­na­tional artists, cura­tors and researchers in res­i­dence every year in the Villa’s studio.

The pro­ject of Villa Vassilieff, run by Bétonsalon — Center for Art and Research, was made pos­sible thanks to the sup­port of both public and pri­vate part­ners, notably Ville de Paris, région Ile-de-France and Fondation Nationale des Arts Graphiques et Plastiques. Pernod Ricard is Villa Vassilieff’s leading sponsor.
