The AIR Celeia programme has been up and running since 2005. The programme encourages the development and promotion of the contemporary artistic and curatorial practices and is based on open dialogue, exchange and cooperation. It is conceived as a two-month residency for international artists and curators. The residency comes with a fee to the artist, space and time, as well as other structural conditions for artists to take on in-depth research, to develop and implement projects, on their own or in a group. It acquaints and connects its residents with local artistic goings-on, as well as those further afield.
AIR Celeia residents have the opportunity to present their work in an exhibition venue run by the Centre for Contemporary Arts, which can take the form of a lecture, discussion, performance or exhibition.
Selections are based on open calls and invitations.
A residential apartment (80 m2) is located in the old town centre of Celje, in the Art Quarter, a stone’s throw away from the Centre for Contemporary Art. The apartment is furnished, has access to a wireless internet connection, and comes with an available parking space.
