and Sunday 23 June 2019


Artsits will meet with foundations, galerists, art critics, collectors, journalists, curators, and art centre and festival directors during the portfolio reviews organised by the CARRE SUR SEINE association.


Come present your work in to experts from the art world, through individual 20-minute meetings. This is a unique occasion to give visibility to your work, to discover new opportunities, gather professional advice, and find financing for a project.


At the end of the event, a jury comprising of experts from the art world will elect a winner of the PRIX DE LA VILLE DE BOULOGNE-BILLANCOURT which includes a grant of 5000 euros.

Candidates also have the chance to participate in the "Ecoutez-Voir" events through CARRE SUR SEINE. At the end of the 2018-2019 season of “Ecoutez-voir”, a jury composed of members of the CARRE SUR SEINE association will assemble to elect the winner of the PRIX DES MEMBRES of CARRE SUR SEINE, which includes a grant of 2000 euros.


The portfolio reviews are open to artists of all disciplines (sculpture, photography, painting, printmaking, etc.) and allows you also to gain critical advice on your work, find opportunities to exhibit, to sell and find financing for a project.


Artists will present their work one-on-one with experts of their choice through a 20-minute meeting in a relaxed and professional atmosphere. These interviews allow artists, regardless of the discipline, to present their work to different experts (who have one or several domaines of expertise), to benefit from an outside eye, a critical appreciation of their work and to give a helping hand to their artistic career.
