Every year since 1965, the Cité internationale des Arts has offered an artist-in-residence programme to artists from all over the world. Needless to say, the themes and works on show in the exhibition are very diverse.
Lee Friedlander, who was at the Cité in 1973, was already known in the US, but Thomas Ruff, in 1982, was at the very start of his career. In the 80s and 90s, Rossella Bellusci, Dirk Braekman and Alain Fleischer all took part in the Month of Photography. Joël-Peter Witkin produced some of his most important work to date in the course of several stays at the Cité. For Raed Bawayah, coming to Paris in 2005 was not just his first trip to a foreign country but a first taste of the art world.
