The 2018 AIR-Bellagio Award Winners
The Africa Centre is pleased to announce its 2018 AIR Bellagio Center award recipients.
This strand of our continental residency program awards highly accomplished artists across disciplines who share in the Africa Centre and Rockefeller Foundation’s mission to highlight and support the artistic practice of those working to promote the well-being of humanity around the world.
These four artists were selected from an extraordinarily talented shortlist of 13, who were selected from an equally impressive pool of 100 applications to our AIR – Bellagio Center program. The residency award includes a month at the Rockefeller Foundatio Bellagio Center and round trip airfare from the artist’s country.
Congratulations to these 4 winners!
