Program Description

AiR 351 is an independent international visual arts residency program located in Cascais, Lisbon region (Portugal). AiR 351´s praxis follows a collaborative model and its team works closely with each resident on a highly supportive environment. Due to the specific current circumstances PLMJ and AiR 351 have agreed to launch a thematic residency open call. This call seeks artists whose works address one or more of the following topics: vulnerability, uncertainty, social solidarity, isolation/proximity, borders, crisis, vigilance, migration, refuge, social inequalities, protection, politics of movement and touch, virtuality. Although connected to the current situation these topics can be considered in a broader and even metaphoric way and not being merely illustrative of reality. Works (texts, images, objects) may or may not be recent and should make room for relating with the current turn. Detailed info about the application process:
