Nastasia Meyrat, Yan Xing, and Claire Trotignon will be introduced to the Casa de Campo community tomorrow evening, January 24th as the new artists in residence of the Davidoff Art Initiative 2017. You are all cordially invited to attend the presentation of these talented individuals to take place at the Davidoff Art Studios at 7:00 p.m.
We already know a bit about their backgrounds, but this is the perfect opportunity to meet and greet the artists, learn about their work, and hear what they aspire to accomplish during their time here. With Altos de Chavón being the artist’s village, we are sure they’ll be able to find inspiration and inspire everywhere they go! We look forward to watching them achieve new vision, perspective, and sharing it with the Casa community.
Last year we fondly remember witnessing the work of Jimmy Roberts in Berlin with a group of Chavón students, so we can’t wait to see what’s next from Davidoff. In the not-so-distant future, we will also meet the rest of this year’s artists in residence; stay tuned as we await their arrival.

ABOUT THE DAVIDOFF ART INITIATIVE RESIDENCY
The centerpiece of the Davidoff Art Initiative is the Davidoff Art Residency.
Each year, the Davidoff Art Residency offers residency positions for Caribbean artists who participate in five artist-residency programs worldwide, as well as for approximately five artists from outside the Caribbean region who spend three months in the Dominican Republic. A limited number of positions are also reserved for curators and writers working on projects of relevance to Caribbean art.
Artist residency programs help working artists develop their skills, make connections within global networks, earn exposure for their work, and share their expertise with others. In offering emerging and mid-career artists an opportunity to spend an extended period of time working in a different social and creative environment from their own, the Davidoff Art Residency serves as a conduit for professional mobility, cultural immersion, and creative exchange.
