Dear friends of Mayeur Projects, dear visitors, Mayeur Projects space is temporarily closed. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we were forced to cancel the exhibition and art residency program for this year 2021.
But we have good news:
- Arnaud Dezoteux’s movie “The New Kid” has been screened at Fondation Pernod Ricard in Paris last June, 3rd. This film was designed and entirely shot in Las Vegas, New Mexico, during Arnaud’s 3-month residency in 2019 at Mayeur Projects, with the support of FACE Foundation (Institut français). On the spot, Arnaud benefited from the technical resources of our partners, Pr. David Lobdell and especially Angela Meron and Miriam Langer at Media Arts & Technology Department of New Mexico Highlands University (NMHU) and the participation of many of our friends and residents in town, including a very exceptional student: Jim, who you’ll find in the movie. From no less than 40 hours of rushes, Arnaud carried out an important post-production work in France during 2020, with the help of Le Fresnoy – National studio of contemporary arts. We are very pleased to have contributed to this project and we send a HUGE THANK YOU to all People on town who were involved or supporter this project.
2. We’ll be happy to welcome two French artists in residency next year:
- Théodora BARAT, winner of AUDI TALENT Awards 2016 for her film Pay-Less Monument, a documentary devoted to a series of monumental museums and architectures located in New Jersey. Théodora’s residency at Mayeur Projects’s title is 2.5D, in relation with New Mexico’s mining and military history and dunes formed by uranium tailing deposits. Théodora makes a link with Robert Smithson’s Aerial Art and how the shift between a ground and an aerial point of view changes the perception from 3D to 2D. Now a resident at Villa Medicis in Rome, Théodora has got support from Institut Français / FACE Foundation for her residency in Las Vegas NM.
- Jérôme PORET, with his project called ” Tsaakù nttnnuwee. Atahtu nùnnuwee”, in relation with Navajo code and inclusion of Native people. A video artist, sculptor and musician, Jérôme creates powerful installations mixing image, obsessive sounds, and even chemical reactions. He has got support from DICREAM for his residency in Las Vegas NM.
We are preparing a new formula for 2022. We will be loyal to our mission, to the Las Vegas community and to our Love for New Mexico, with increased support to the talents of the local arts and culture scene.
Anyway, if you are interested by availability and prices of works presented on this website, please feel free to send us an email to the address below. YES, WE SHIP !
