Residency For Artists On Hiatus (RFAOH)

A collaborative project with Matthew Evans, Residency for Artists on Hiatus (RFAOH) is a virtual yet functioning residency available to artists, who, for one reason or another, are not currently making or presenting art. It exists in the form of a website, and the residents are selected based on their proposals of "on-hiatus" activities (or non-activities) through open calls. Each resident is represented on a dedicated page within the RFAOH website where they post periodical reports on their "non-art" endeavors; they are paid a modest stipend in exchange for their participation. Launched in May 2013 with Tehching Hsieh joining our advisory board, Residency for Artists On Hiatus has spent a truly inspiring first year and is now in its 2nd round with a whole new cohort of artists-on-hiatus. For more information, please visit the website. A full description of the project is available as a PDF document here.
