Clocktower Exhibits & Events
AIR's Clocktower Gallery was founded by alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After closing as a gallery space in 2001, the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2009 under the auspices of the newly founded AIR. Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators.
