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 recently acquired works by residency artists as well as works by Renato Leotta and Marie Lund. It supported Benoît Maire's exhibition Thèbes at CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux in 2018.
