About the artists-in-residence laboratory
The artists-in-residence laboratory program has been organising residencies for foreign artists at CCA Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw since 2003. In parallel, it seeks to promote Polish artists internationally by facilitating their participation in creative residencies hosted by the laboratory’s partner programs throughout the world. At present the a-i-r laboratory can host up to seven artists at one time in studios placed in the CCA and the adjacent Laboratory building opened in 2010.
Resident artists receive an opportunity to present their projects publicly at the CCA as lectures, projections, public discussions, exhibitions and performances. The laboratory also strives to encourage visiting artists to realise their work in the public spaces of Warsaw or in one of the laboratory’s numerous independent partner galleries.
This programme is co-finanaced by the City of Warsaw in the frames of the competition for the title European Capital of Culture 2016.
