Expectations towards the artist

AiR Sandnes is primarily a work oriented residency and focus highly on process, being a space where artists can feel free and allowed to experiment with their own work and practice. An exhibition or presentation is not mandatory, but we highly encourage our artists to end their stay with an exhibition or some sort of presentation of the works created during the residency.
