Fondation Fiminco has invested in a former industrial site in Romainville, on the outskirts of Paris and accessible by the metro, to create a place that supports artists from all over the world and open to all audiences. Each year, the Fondation Fiminco hosts an 11 months residency for artists of different nationalities, giving them the opportunity to develop their work and their research. Designed for artists, this project aims to provide space, tools, and support to create a working environment for artists, across disciplinary practices. The aim of the Fondation is not to build and show a collection, but to support artists throughout their creative process, accompanying their professional and artistic development.
Inaugurated in October 2019, the project covers 11,000 square meters in five separate buildings, including a monumental 14-metre-high boiler room that has become an exhibition space. This unique site brings together the international artists’ residency of Fondation Fiminco, exhibition spaces, four art galleries - Air de Paris, Galerie Jocelyn Wolff, Galerie Sator et In Situ fabienne leclerc - an association, Jeune Création, an art and design school, Parsons Paris, a book design and publishing house, Laurel Parker Book, and the new storage facility of the Fonds régional d’art contemporain Île-de-France.
