About the Artists-In-Residence Laboratory

The A-I-R Laboratory has been organising an international residency programme at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw since 2002. We consider Warsaw to be an inspiring environment for international artists to develop their ideas while using the residency as a tool for creation and critical reflection. These residencies for artists and other art-related professionals provide an opportunity to develop projects in close dialogue with a curator, and are organised with respect to artistic work reaching beyond the art market or exhibition commissions. At present, the A-I-R Laboratory can host up to seven artists at one time in studios located within the CCA and in the adjacent Laboratory building, which was opened in 2010. 

This programme is co-financed by the City of Warsaw.
