In a world characterized by inequalities, A.I.R has been functioning as a space for self-identified women artists since 1972, developing a unique cooperative model through which scarce assets have been shared and women’s issues have been raised. As a feminist artist-run organization, with a self-directed governing body, A.I.R. is an alternative cultural institution and is supported by its network of active artist participants. It’s existence proved to be fundamental in the careers of artists so diverse as Nancy Spero, Ana Mendieta, Mary Beth Edelson, Judith Bernstein and many more. The struggle continues and now on our 45th season, it is time to extend our resources to an even larger and more diverse body of women and femmes regardless of their current social, economic, national and racial background, while enabling a broader public to benefit from the content and the space A.I.R. can provide.
