AIR Vallauris


Located in the heart of the old town Vallauris, on the French Riviera, A.I.R. Vallauris (Artists in Residence), a non-profit association, welcomes artists from around the world to its lodgings and studios to meet with local artists and to research and create new works. Entering its 16th season, A.I.R. Vallauris has welcomed over 250 international artists since its conception in 2001.

The Association has three primary objectives:

  • Hosting of international artists and the support of contemporary creation.
  • Education in (primarily, but not exclusively) the field of ceramic arts.
  • The organisation and realisation of cultural events.

Artists in Residence: A.I.R. Vallauris accommodates several artists at a given time in its residence and studios. Using different mediums artists (ceramists, sculptors, painters, photographers, video and multimedia) work from an equipped studio, live in individual furnished spaces and are given access to a gallery where their works are displayed at the end of their residency period. Media involvement encourages the interest of an invited and engaged audience. The quality of artistic creation is one of the major concerns addressed by the program. A selection committee evaluates applicants based on their artistic experience, merit and project proposal.
