The Centre of Contemporary Art NAIRS

Established in 2005, the NAIRS Foundation is a unique synthesis of an art gallery, a cultural centre and an artist-in-residence programme. It links the Engadin with Swiss and international contemporary art.

As an art gallery, the NAIRS Foundation hosts exhibitions of Swiss and international contemporary art, as well as a variety of cultural events and colloquia.

As a cultural centre in the Engadin, the NAIRS Foundation deals with the culture, the cultural production and the issues that concern the region. It focuses on cultural self-awareness of the Engadin of today and conducts events relating to the cultural life of the Romansh.

As part of its international artists-in-residence programme (AIR), the NAIRS Foundation serves as an artists’ house. NAIRS invites every year about 30 jury-selected artists to stay and work here for a period of up to 9 months. The Foundation promotes dialogue and cooperation between different art forms. The focus is on the visual arts, but residencies are also awarded to artists from the fields of music, literature, theatre, dance and science.
