In/Between 2020: TRANSFIGURE

Artists Abril, Castro and DeltaDawn developed the 2020 theme, TRANSFIGURE, before the pandemic and uprisings. At the time, they were considering the upcoming U.S. elections and the call not just to strengthen democratic principles but to affect a transformation. There was/is a need for radical change towards a further completion of the democratic experiment, to equitable and just participation. Immigrant artists are among those at the crux of these conversations.

A.I.R. Gallery Fellowship

The A.I.R. Fellowship Program was established in 1993 by former artist member, Stephanie Bernheim, in order to support underrepresented and emerging self-identified women and non- binary artists in New York City. Each year, six artists are awarded a year-long fellowship to develop a project at A.I.R.



In the last 27 years, more than 100 artists have had the opportunity to have their first solo exhibition in New York City with the support of the A.I.R. community. The 2020-2021 Fellowship Program received over 300 applications which were reviewed by a panel consisting of artist Gina Beavers, poet and critic Monica de la Torre, and Chapter NY director Nicole Russo. Today, we are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2020-2021 A.I.R. Fellowship:
