Antwerpen Artist in Residence

International residency project for visual artists

AIR Antwerpen is centered around the contemporary artistic practice and focuses on individual artistic needs of the emerging visual artist. The organisation guides the artist in a process-based project, with time and space as a premise for a site-specific and contextual practice.

As an independent institute in a (supra) national network AIR Antwerp is offering national and international artists a temporary stay in a specific environment with selected partners. AIR Antwerpen values its unique and experimental identity and guarantees a consistent quality and competitively range of artists, partners and projects.

AIR Antwerpen nurtures intercultural dialogue that arises from its local roots and the cultural, social and political current environment that Belgium offers. Embedded in a city with a glorious past and a vibrant contemporary art scene, AIR Antwerpen triggers conversational exchange between past and present, local and global.
