It is free to refuse the appointment if he wishes.   The artist can also <strong>choose not to give the exact positioning of his studio</strong>, but only the name of the village or the street. In that situation, only during the first contact with the visitor that he give the exact address.   <img alt="Dscf6831-1441964096" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/230656/DSCF6831-1441964096.jpg"> <p>  </p> <p> AN IDEA WHICH RESULTS OF EXPERIENCES:   </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Young, I grew up in a large studio with paintings and sculpture</strong> in the heart of the Landes forest in the Southwest of France. My parents, who are artists created a wonderful place that has long remained secret to everyone.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Throughout my studies and experiences, I realize that there is a need to make art more accessible. </strong>In analyzing the role of the art market, I quickly understood that it lacked a new tool that would streamline the relationships between artists and the public.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>When going on a trip, we all love discovering new places</strong> and to meet new people at a street corner. However, it is very difficult to get into an artist's studio without feeling at ease, or being intrusive.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>When I rented my first apartment in Montreal in 2013, I wanted to be surrounded by unique items. </strong>I was excited to create a "small museum" at home by investing my savings in the purchase of works of art from local designers and if possible in my neighborhood (because I had no car) . Again, I had great difficulty in identifying places near me.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Museums and art galleries are elitist places for all.</strong> The approach may seem impersonal, works are detached from their creator, their workshop and can lose their meaning.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Our residential areas are extensions of ourselves.</strong> Tired of standardization and consumerism, our society needs markers, decorative items chosen and reflected that give meaning to our lives.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Art schools are multiplying all over the world, but there is no tool which allows us to know these young creators.</strong> I want to give these new artists a powerful tool to easily identify them wherever they are.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>All artists regardless of their age or their routes merit visibility.</strong> I wish to offer a simple and innovative tool that will emerge from the shadow of the creators never discovered.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Capture_d__cran_2015-09-09___10.51.53-1441788742" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/229921/Capture_d__cran_2015-09-09___10.51.53-1441788742.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>WHO AM I ?</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> Maylis Doucet, daughter of artists, holder a <strong>MASTER 2 LAW AND TAXATION OF THE ART MARKET </strong>(Lyon), a <strong>MASTER 2 RIGHT OF INTELLECTUAL CREATIONS </strong>(Bordeaux) and a double <strong>LICENSE OF HISTORY OF ART. </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> I wrote two memoirs during my studies: <strong>"The art collectors of tomorrow"</strong> and <strong>"New alternatives in the art market ».   </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Following a period at <strong>Christie's</strong> and <strong>Sotheby's,</strong> I worked two years at an auction house in Montreal, Quebec (iegor.net) as <strong>Head of the art international and object d'art department.   </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Back in France,<strong> I participated in the creation of a new art gallery in Biarritz</strong> (galeriehausseguy.com) that supports a dozen French and international artists.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> In 27 years, I am challenging myself to create an application for <strong>a one and unique purpose to make art accessible.    </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Your help is important for me.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Wherart-1439745868" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/224786/WHERART-1439745868.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>

<p> <strong><i>WHAT HAS BEEN ACHIEVED?</i>   </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> With my savings, I<strong> have already realized the graphic identity </strong>and a presentation allowing me to communicate my final project.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> My specifications, tree structure, graphics and features are ready.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> I am trying to do multiple quotes to develop my application.   </p> <p>  </p> <p> The application inauguration should be complete by late fall, <strong>depending on the amount of money raised.</strong> It will likely be in Biarritz but also in Paris. Everyone who has contributed will be invited to attend the inauguration.(Ex: share in Facebook).</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dscf6650-1440764641" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/227016/DSCF6650-1440764641.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>HOW WILL I DEVELOP MY PROJECT?</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>I will gradually develop my project geographically.</strong> I'll start  with the workshops in the Southwest of France where I live, and then actually in to other regions according to where my meetings take place.</p> <p>  </p> <p> In each new area of action, I will spend four days physically : </p> <p> - The <strong>first two (Monday and Tuesday) </strong>will be destined to the visit of 8 workshops (pre-selected) with two visits in the morning and two afternoon visits, </p> <p> - <strong>The third (Wednesday)</strong> will be destined to the launch of these workshops, </p> <p> - <strong>The fourth day (Thursday) </strong>will be reserved for the <u>inauguration of the application in the region.   </u></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays </strong>are days when I plan to return to Biarritz.
