Sophia Lapiashvili / GeoAIR

back to organisations

GeoAIR (2003 onwards) organizes and supports international exchange projects with the goal of strengthening the Georgian and Caucasian art world, bringing together artists from different cultural backgrounds and finding relevant contexts for them to work in. Besides this, GeoAIR stimulates and raises awareness and engagement with art and culture from this region. We work together with international individuals and organizations that share our goals. GeoAIR has also become, over the past years, an ‘intermediary’ for individuals and organizations that seek connection with the arts in this region.

In January 2010 GeoAIR opened it's residency program. This is a self directed residency program, that offers primarily curators and culture producers the opportunity to base themselves in Tbilisi, Georgia and use this location as a starting point to build networks, meet artists, cultural institutions and curators from the Caucasus region, and develop and deepen their knowledge and research of the Caucasus context. In return local artists, curators and organizations will have the opportunity to extend their knowledge about the innovative ways that many international curators are working. GeoAIR has designated her residency mainly for curators or cultural producers because it feels that they are most able to affect multiplier effects through exchange and production and are more equipped to use the residency as a platform from which to jump for to instigate future collaborations between the resident and artists and organizations form the Caucasus region.

GeoAIR team is changing in time,?currently it is Sophia Tabatadze (Artist), Nini Palavandishvili (Curator / Graphic Designer), Sophia Lapiashvili (Curator/Photographer), Data Chigholashvili (Anthropologist).
