ARTISTS MAKING ART ON AIRPLANES.
Air Air is proud to launch a unique artist's residency experience that takes place entirely while in-flight on commercial airlines. The round-trip flights will take 3 artists to their destination locations and back, all within 24 hours. Once the artists are back on the ground, the residency culminates in a one night pop-up exhibition. Air Air aims to encourage visual artists, composers, and writers to create under the constraints of limited space, limited materials, and sensory deprivation while in-flight.
Applications are now closed and will reopen in March 2018. The next residency will take place in May 2018.
