In 2017, the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation entered into a partnership with Villa Arson, based in Nice. This contemporary art institution combines, on one site, an École nationale supérieure d’art, a Centre national d’art contemporain, an artists’ residence and a dedicated library.
The Foundation is committed to awarding a 10,000 euros scholarship every two years to an artist who has graduated from Villa Arson with the national diploma of advanced artistic expression (DNSEP), obtained in recognition of his or her artistic practice and production in painting or drawing.
This financial support will provide help for the young artist at the beginning of his or her professional life and artistic career (accommodation, materials, studio and other expenses).
The next artist support scholarship will be awarded in 2023. For more information, please see the Villa Arson website
