"New York City and Paris are both international capitals of the arts, and the diverse, vibrant cultural landscapes of our cities have been shaped by generations of artists, dancers, musicians, writers, and creators who have lived and worked in the City that Never Sleeps and the City of Light. New York is thrilled to have the chance to continue the dynamic conversation between our artistic communities with this year’s Paris-New York Tandem."
