RFAOH co-directors, Shinobu Akimoto and Matthew Evans are pleased to invite international “artists on-hiatus” to apply to our second call to participate in our ongoing project, Residency for Artists on Hiatus (RFAOH).

Residency for Artists on Hiatus is a virtual yet functioning residency available to artists who, for one reason or another, are not currently making or presenting art. The residency exists in the form of a website, and the participants are selected based on their proposals of “on-hiatus” activities (or non-activities). To be eligible to apply, artists must have previously created an independent body of work and have exhibited in a public context. Selected artists will be represented on the RFAOH website by a dedicated page on which they are asked to post periodic reports throughout their residency. A modest stipend will be awarded to successful applicants to assist in their on-hiatus endeavors. At the conclusion of their residency, residents are expected to submit a written report on how they benefited from or were otherwise influenced by this opportunity.

For a DIY project with such modest beginnings, our first year brought us amazing collaborations and responses that developed beyond our expectations. The scope of our inaugural residents’ on-hiatus activities ranged from meditation to being a full-time professor of architecture, from organic gardening to applying to an MBA programme or explorations into various leisure activities for leisure’s sake. While stepping back from their art practices yet maintaining some lifeline to their artist identity, all our residents uniquely perceived, approached, and used this opportunity. Their inspiring posts and final reports may be read on the RFAOH website. We also sincerely thank Mr. Tehching Hsieh for accepting our invitation to sit on our advisory board, as well as those who brought us opportunities to present RFAOH worldwide.

Given the currently topical discussions around the institutionalization of art practice and artist’s identity, we are excited to host the second cohort of residents, and continue our discourse surrounding the role of art within the greater culture at large.

To know more about Residency for Artists on Hiatus and its first year of operation, please visit our website.

*** Detailed information on how to apply can also be found here.***

The deadline for applications is September 15.

Residency For Artists On Hiatus continues to seek a host organization who may promote the residency through their own website and assist in funding the programme. The amount of the stipend paid to the residents as well as the format of the final publication will be contingent on this funding. Should you be interested in supporting RFAOH, please contact us at info@residencyforartistsonhiatus.org, or go to our support page to see how you can help.

For the past six months, the experimental production studio MomenTech has been on hiatus at Residency for Artists on Hiatus. During this time, Maciej Toporowicz, Mika Johnson and Reynard Loki have engaged in a daily meditation practice that has involved not only meditation, but also research, reflection and posting updates and various musings on their RFAOH blog page.

On April 30, their residency comes to an end. On May 1, MomenTech will resume normal creative production.

For the "final act" of their residency, they are hosting an open online meditation session via Google Hangout. If you'd like to tune in, tune out and/or get tuned, please drop by for all or part of the hour-long session.

MomenTech Open Meditation Google Hangout
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
8-9pm EST

Enjoy the silence.*

Residency For Artists On Hiatus is now accepting applications


Deadline:

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. The residency will exist in the form of a website, and the participants will be selected based on their proposals of “on-hiatus” activities (or non-activities) through open calls. To be eligible to apply, artists must have previously created an independent body of work and have exhibited in a public context. Selected artists will be represented on the site by a dedicated page on which they may post periodic reports throughout their residency. A modest stipend will be awarded to successful applicants to assist in their on-hiatus endeavours. At the conclusion of their residency, participants are expected to submit a written report along with other relevant documentation on how they benefited from or were otherwise influenced by this opportunity. In its ultimate/ideal incarnation, the residency will be “hosted” by an art institution, who would provide access to the site through their own website, and assist in funding the programme. Residency for Artists on Hiatus plans to publish an annual report as a full-colour catalogue of the participants' on-hiatus activities.

Residency for Artists on Hiatus invites you to: 

1. Apply for its inaugural residency period in 2013/2014:
