The principle of Rencontres Artistiques
Foundations, gallery owners, art critics, collectors, journalists, curators, art centres, festival directors... welcome you to the artist days organised byassociation CARRÉ SUR SEINE .
Present your work to experts from the art world, during individual 20-minute meetings, in the form of portfolio readings.
This is a unique opportunity to give your work visibility, to obtain new opportunities, to get professional advice, to seek funding for a project...
At the end of the readings, the Jury of the Prize Carré sur Seine, composed of experts from Rencontres Artistiques, elects the winners of the PRIX CARRE SUR SEINE, who will be rewarded with 5,000 euros each.
Carré sur Seine would like to thank its partners for their contribution to this event: the City of Boulogne-Billancourt, the Interconstruction Endowment Fund, the Emerige Endowment Fund, the Compagnie des bateaux à roues and ICART (School of Cultural Mediation and Art Market).
The team of Carré sur Seine is pleased to announce the President of the Prize Carré sur Seine Edition 2022: Mrs Chiara Parisi, Director of the Centre Pompidou-Metz.
The Meetings are open to all artistic disciplines (sculpture, photography, painting, plastic arts, engraving...) and also allow you to get a critical opinion on your work, to find opportunities to distribute and exhibit it, to sell it, to find sources of funding for a project.
The artists present their work individually to the experts of their choice during appointments of about 20 minutes in a relaxed but professional atmosphere. These interviews allow artists, regardless of their type of artistic practice, to present their work to different readers (having one or more areas of choice), to benefit from an external eye, a critical appreciation of their work and give a boost to their artistic careers.
Among the candidates selected for Rencontres Artistiques Carré sur Seine , some will be selected to participate in the annual cycle of the Rencontres-Projections "Écoutez Voir" and will be able to present their work to the members of the work in front of the members ofAssociation Carré sur Seine .
For the first time, in parallel with Rencontres Artistiques,Association is organising conferences for artists and experts.
The three conferences are free and will take place in the Amphitheatre of the same Espace Landowski.

Artists-Authors, which interlocutors and which steps to take?
- Tips and traps to avoid -
by Charlotte Delsol, Head of development and partnerships at La Maison des Artistes
The presentation explains the steps to be taken to become a professional, to obtain a Siret number, to make administrative declarations, to obtain VAT, to obtain BNC and professional expenses, and to make it possible to understand these obligations and the different options that artists will have to know in order to participate in a competition, to exhibit, to respond to a residency, or to face a client or an agency commissioning them for a project.

Mid-Career Artist, Quesaquo?
- Who are they, what is a mid-career artist? -
by Laurence d'Ist, Historian and curator
"Through my exchanges with art professionals and experts present at the Rencontres Carré sur Seine, I became interested in the mid-career artists they know, exhibit, defend and acquire in their galleries, museums and foundations. I looked at the studies that have been published on the subject.
In 30 minutes, I propose to share with you the thoughts that have emerged from these discussions. The reason for this question is that in the effervescence of the many prizes for artistic creation that exist in France, few reward a career. Behind this problem lies the question of the criteria for awarding such a prize and its legitimacy. This conference is intended for all artists who will necessarily go through this stage. Laurence d'Ist

Theory and practice of NFTs
by Charles Giulioli, Visual artist, painting and digital
For more than a year, NFTs have been the subject of media attention. These strange digital objects raise many questions:
- technical questions about blockchains and cryptocurrencies,
- practical questions: how to access and use the sales platforms
- theoretical questions about art and its trade, the notion of ownership, speculation...
In 45 minutes, the conference will address these different points and leave room for debate.
