About AIRIE Asks

AIRIE Asks is a new online initiative led by Helen Toomer, AIRIE’s Executive Director, in which she asks fellows of the residency program a series of questions related to their time spent within the Everglades, how it affected them and their practice and what they are working on now.

This series launched on Earth Day where AIRIE fellow Dara Friedman, the internationally renowned, Miami-based artist and filmmaker, shared her experience as the artist-in-residence in January, 2020. More information can be found here.

For the second episode AIRIE Asks: Rebecca Reeve to share her experience as an artist-in-residence in 2012 and how this time in the Everglades influenced her photographic practice.
