Vivanto is the associate producer of “La Nuit américaine”, which celebrates the Villa Albertine’s first anniversary at the Musée d’Orsay.

” What happens when dozens of creators and thinkers scatter across America, from New York to San Francisco, from Chicago to Los Angeles, from Texas to Alaska? In 12 months, Villa Albertine has already welcomed more than 80 residents in around 30 cities across the United States, who have brought back impactful experiences and inspiring reflections; 80 are preparing to embark in the coming months, each for a tailor-made exploratory project.
On November 17 from 6:30pm to 11pm, a hundred of these residents—visual artists, filmmakers, writers, choreographers, musicians, architects, designers, and more—will stop by the Musée d’Orsay, to propose an unprecedented exploration of the United States through multiple formats, all inspired by their residencies. They will be joined by leading American experts and cultural figures, notably Glenn D. Lowry, Director of MoMA in New York, and Katherine E. Fleming, President of the Getty Center in Los Angeles.
Sit down with a resident for a 10-minute on-on-one exchange, experience choreographer Nacera Belaza’s voyage across America through dance, immerse yourself in the sounds of New York recorded by composer Michel Risse, marvel at the variations in the color of the Mississippi River with photographer Nicolas Floc’h, move to the sound of the voice and double bass of Sélène Saint-Aimé back from La New Orleans, sojourn to Alaska with archaeologist Claire Houmard who is working with the Yupik population to rediscover their heritage threatened by climate change, explore 11 American cities through the eyes of illustrators from The Parisianer collective, dance under the nave of the Musée d’Orsay to a DJ set by Zimmer… La Nuit Américaine celebrates creation and creators, and opens up new perspectives on the United States of today.”
