Tell us a little bit about A.I.R.

A.I.R. Gallery is an artist-run non-profit arts organization and exhibition space founded in 1972. A.I.R. supports the open exchange of ideas and risk-taking by women and non-binary artists in order to provide support and visibility. A self-directed governing body, the organization is an alternative to mainstream institutions and thrives on the network of active participants.

How long has A.I.R. been based in DUMBO?

A.I.R. has been based in DUMBO for over 10 years. The gallery first opened in Soho, and relocated to DUMBO in the late 2000s. In May 2015, we moved to our current location at 155 Plymouth street.

What makes DUMBO’s art community different from other arts neighborhoods in the city?

DUMBO has a continued commitment to ensuring the vitality of artists and arts organizations in its community.

What artists are you excited to see at the 2022 DUMBO Open Studios?

We are excited to see work from former A.I.R. Artist Fellows, such as Lizania Cruz, Victoria Manganiello, and Destiny Belgrave!
