Introduction

Est-Nord-Est (ENE) is an artist-run centre whose mission is to provide an international community of artists and authors in contemporary art with support by offering space and time for research and experimentation, as well as privileged access to local resources and knowhow.

The centre is situated in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, a village on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, in a unique geographic and historical locale. The predominant aspects of the landscapes are farms, forests, and the river. Saint-Jean-Port-Joli is situated 115 km from Quebec City and 350 km from Montreal.

Originally based on the idea of encounters between sculptors with contemporary practices and those using regional traditional skills, ENE now welcomes contemporary visual-arts artists from all disciplines.

Because it is convinced of the important bond between artworks and words, the centre encourages writing about contemporary art by offering a residency to authors. More specifically, these residencies are reserved for authors whose research and writing focuses on notions, practices or issues related to contemporary and current visual and media arts.

In 2020–21, ENE opens its call for applications to international authors for the first time.

The work and living spaces are common to all residents, and so the authors may immerse themselves in the art that is being made. Residents have an opportunity to explore their research more deeply, to experiment, and to create in a cultural space that is unique, lively, and stimulating. ENE is a member of Res Artis, Pépinières européennes de création and of the Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec.

The eight-week residency periods, which bring together four artists and one author in the field of contemporary art, are offered in spring, summer, fall, and, in 2020 for the first time, winter. In summer 2019, ENE moved into its new building created and designed specifically for artist and author residencies. The centre’s expertise in hosting residencies oriented the choices made when its premises were built. This new architectural concept places exchanges, friendly relations, and technical and logistical assistance at the heart of the experience offered to residents. Through these choices, the centre once again reaffirms its innovative position with regard to art residencies.
