For this second term, Aurélie Filippetti will ask Éric de Chassey to undertake an in-depth reform of the status of residents in order to better integrate their stays in their professional careers and to return, in France in particular, the results of their work.

It should intensify partnerships with higher education institutions under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and Communication in all disciplines (visual arts, architecture, heritage, performing arts, cinema...) and with European and international artistic structures so that the Villa Médicis becomes a real platform for developing research in art and promoting the inclusion of its residents in international networks.

Eric de Chassey will also have to amplify the relations of the establishment with Italy and the European and international influence of the establishment while ensuring to continue the modernization and rationalization of the management methods of the establishment, during its first mandate.

Born in 1965 in the United States, Eric de Chassey, normalian, doctor in art history, professor at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, former member of the Institut universitaire de France, has combined a solid classical education with a very good knowledge of contemporary art, as well as the academic approach to a recognized activity of art critic and curator.
