A.I.R. Gallery Announces
CURRENTS Exhibition Series
*New Opportunity for Women Artists*

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce CURRENTS, a timely and innovative exhibition series. Each year the CURRENTS exhibit will address an
issue that warrants expanded critical attention in the art world.  A.I.R. will invite established and non-traditional curators (artists, activists, writers,
poets) to select the works to be exhibited with the theme designed as a collaboration between the curator and the gallery.  This new opportunity
is open to all self-identified women artists worldwide and will be curated through an open call and through invitations by the curator.

For the inaugural CURRENTS exhibit,
Martha Wilson will curate, "At Her Age," an exhibit on Women, Age and Sex. The deadline for entries is
May 14, 2010.  The exhibit will take place in A.I.R.'s Gallery I space from December 1, 2010 through January 2, 2011.

At Her Age will examine how women at any period in their life, old or young, view their changing bodies. Questions to be addressed could be:
"How does age affect experiencing one's sexual/sensual life?" or "How does age impact one's evolving personal and social relationships?"  
While others may perceive older women as inconsequential or asexual, they personally may experience increasing knowledge of themselves.  
Younger women may experience curiosity/fear/pleasure about the changes in their own bodies due to age. A.I.R. Gallery is looking for artwork
that addresses age and sex as part of a transformational process.

About the Curator: Martha Wilson is an artist and Founding Director of Franklin Furnace Archive, Inc., a museum she established in her
TriBeCa storefront loft in lower Manhattan. Since its inception in 1976, Franklin Furnace has presented and preserved temporal art: artists’
books and other multiples produced internationally after 1960; temporary installations; and performance art.
