Artist Residency

SOLARIS is a programme of artist residencies, founded by Anne-Sophie Dinant and Benoit Doche de Laquintane in Bordeaux in 2015.

The programme consists of one residency per year for invited artists. It aims to support emerging and established artists from the international art scene by enabling them to focus on specific research and to develop new work during their time in the city.

SOLARIS is a private structure initiated by the Fonds de dotation DLD.


The Fonds de dotation DLD has supported Benoît Maire's exhibition Thèbes at CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux in 2018 and has supported Alice Theobald's new film Il y aura…, 2021 which emerged from her residency at SOLARIS.
