First big news of 2017 at RFAOH
It’s now well passed mid January, schools have started and galleries have opened new exhibitions; everyone in the arts seems to be geared up for the new season. RFAOH’s first big announcement of 2017 is that our current resident artist on hiatus, Ramla Fatima has decided not to resume her art practice after January as initially planned, but to extend her residency until the end of our 3rd year in July 2017! We are happy that she’s liking being on hiatus with us — you decide if it is good or bad news (:
Like Ramla, who has already sent a number of reports this month, other residents are also busy with their non-art endeavors into 2017 and are actively reporting. We feel good about the latter half of our 3rd year, contrary to the general anxiety in the world. It feels good to stay on the peripheral but in the most open and open-ended community. Let’s all gather together and continue to re-imagine the true potential of nonsense and new rhetoric at RFAOH!
PS: We love that some of our past residents also keep in touch and send us their post-hiatus news from time to time. Here’s one from Mary Kroetsch -> http://us4.campaign-archive2.com/?u=3216c4f4b49fbadfcc40a5b9d&id=5c3da1e639&e=8748bdd7fb
