Start/Pause
Organization and management
GeoAIR, a non-governmental and non-commercial organization was found in 2003.
Date of legally registration: 2007.

Strategies/Priorities
GeoAIR (from 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 years, an ‘intermediary for individuals and organizations that seek connection with the arts in this region.

Projects

During three weeks in April 2008 a group of Georgian, Dutch, Turkish and Armenian artists created platform for exchange of information, brainstorm sessions, group and individual projects and research on and around the theme: contemporary art archive. This project was realized in collaboration with the team of Georgian Contemporary Art Archive ‘Archodrome’ and took place in the Silk Museum in Tbilisi.
