L’AiR Arts Association – Atelier 11 is part of the Artists at Risk (AR) hosting institutions network.
Built by artists for artists in the 1860s, Atelier 11 is the last preserved atelier of the historical artists community of Cité Falguière in Paris. During its 150+ years of artistic history, the Cité Falguière served as a working and living place to more than a hundred French and international artists. Once home to Amedeo Modigliani, Tsuguharu Foujita, Constantin Brancusi, Chaïm Soutine, and Paul Gauguin, it was built with connecting staircases and footbridges to foster connections among artists. Artists of Cité Falguière from different cultural and social backgrounds, such as Chaïm Soutine and Amedeo Modigliani, often shared the same atelier space that brought them closer together and provided the opportunity for exchange, encouragement and inspirations.
