A.I.R. Vallauris: 2015 residencies

Create and exhibit new work in the town where Picasso worked with ceramics on the French Riviera

Located in the heart of the old town Vallauris, France, A.I.R. Vallauris (Artists in Residence), a non-profit association, welcomes artists from around the world to its lodgings and studios to meet with local artists and to research and create new works in a unique setting. The Association became active in October, 2001 and has three primary objectives:

• The hosting of artists from around the globe and support of contemporary creation.

• Education in (primarily, but not exclusively) the field of ceramic arts.

• The organization and realization of cultural events.

Artists in Residence

A.I.R. Vallauris accommodates several artists at a given time for a period of one to two months, in its residence and studios. Using different mediums (ceramists, sculptors, painters, photographers, video and multimedia) artists work from an equipped studio, live in individual furnished spaces and are afforded access to a gallery where their works are displayed and celebrated at the end of their residency period. Media involvement encourages the interest of an invited and engaged audience. The quality of artistic creation is one of the major concerns addressed by the program. A selection committee evaluates applicants based on their artistic experience, merit and project proposal. Over the approximate thirteen year period from April 2002, over 200 artists from 30 different nationalities have participated in the A.I.R. program.
