invites visual artists, curators, designers and 
chefs to submit a project on the theme of

Thalie Art Foundation - ThalieLab
Thalie Art Foundation is a private foundation 
whose mission is to support contemporary creation 
dedicated to societal themes, thus fostering 
active and collaborative artistic practices in 
order to create social ties and to rise 
awareness. This is also to live and "bring to 
life" a new approach to contemporary art by being 
closer to artists and work processes.

As an artist's residency devoted to innovation 
and engagement in the public sphere, ThalieLab is 
both an incubator and a platform for the 
production and dissemination of work that 
resonates with contemporay social issues.

In January 2018, the foundation will open 
ThalieLab, a private initiative of Nathalie 
Guiot, a collector, patron, curator and author. 
ThalieLab works on four axis: production support, 
artists residency, mediation and arts education
