I´m gonna bake a cake today

So May is just about ending. One of our cakes for our 1 year birth month was Jake Chapman tweeting back that he liked our Cmagazine interview where we quoted he and his brother.  Also, Grant Kester kindly wrote us back to acknowledge he had received our email. They made our day.

Art and celebrity is another topic offshoot of the art/money/profession debate. “..the onset of globalism has given rise to the exotic notion of the artist(curator/critic)-celebrity as a globetrotting, biennale-showing, party-attending cultural worker.” (RFAOH-about)  While being annoyed by the cliquey and self-absorbed culture of our discipline, we follow our own superstars and name-drop.  It’s funny when you really think about the portion of the population who might recognize the names of such celebrities outside this field.  We all need our cake for our effort if there’s no payment.

Get a job

We have recently encountered a compilation of tweets on “living as an artist” by Japanese Artist Tatsuo Miyajima.   Despite the specificity of his targeted audience and circumstances in his country, some parts resonated with RFAOH’s interests so we decided to translate it into English with his consent. We are simply curious to know what happens in other nations.
On Living as an Artist / Tatsuo Miyajima 

Likewise, there have been many talks lately on topics around “art and money” and/or “art and profession/ professionalism”. So there you go, here are some inspirations of the week around our office:

The Paradox of Art as Work
Art Worker –  The app for self-represented artists (Free)

Have a good weekend!

It is question of carrier and money. In gallery you make art carrier. Is the same on hiatus?

shinobu wrote on Jun 8:

“I wanted to prove that actually you can make art with nothing,” -- why make art? make nothing and be on hiatus (;

RFAOH turns 1 this month!! — Where´s the cake?

Last May, after failing in our bids to secure public funding or institutional support, we decided to go ahead and launch RFAOH as a total DIY endeavor. Looking back, we are thrilled at how it has generated so many inspiring stories, responses, and more thoughts around the topic — all because of our brilliant residents and supporters as collaborators — Thank YOU! 

We would love to see the next round happening but for that, we need serious contemplation and tactics — Well, this month is reserved all for that besides the celebration.  Stay tuned!
