As part of the FOCUS for Visual Arts program, organized by Institut français, 10 international curators have been chosen for a familiarization visit to France from May 19 to 24. They are invited to discover the French artistic scene through the diverse spaces dedicated to contemporary art (museums, art centers, foundations, galleries) and meetings with artists and curators. Their program includes the Salon de la jeune création de Montrouge and the first Paris-based Collectors Weekend, CHOICES.
 
Jonathan Middleton, director and curator of the OR Gallery in Vancouver, will participate from Canada, with the support of the French cultural services.
