Artists-in-Residence Laboratory is a meeting place, a workshop, a house, a space for artistic and curatorial activities. We are looking for new forms of intercultural and international cooperation and the exchange of experience in the field of art, constantly re-defining our understanding of the concept of artist residency and the role of artists-in-residence in the modern institution of culture. While working for the CCA Ujazdowski Castle, we are at the same time striving to offer artists staying with us the possibility of going beyond the gallery, beyond the concept of the exhibition as a method of the communication of art.
We support the development of international bonds between artists, curators and researchers; we promote the idea of the mobility of artists and art professionals in Poland and widely understood Eastern Europe. At the same time, the works of residents and curators of the A-I-R Laboratory are deeply entrenched in the local context of Warsaw, on many layers they map and enter into the dialogue with the city, involving its inhabitants in the creation process. We encourage cooperation between the foreign artists staying with the A-I-R Laboratory and the Warsaw artistic and scientific circles. Throughout the democratically structured workshops, discussion panels and meetings, our residents share their knowledge and skills with various groups of viewers."
