In conjunction with their current exhibition L'OFFRE, DHC/ART in Montreal has invited RFAOH to set up a satellite office in their basement and run multiple events that offer visitors opportunities to embrace the notion of "hiatus as a gift". These events include:

*Open Office Wednesdays + On-hiatus proposal review and non-art therapy by appointment*

Every Wednesday, RFAOH co-director(s) will be working in the satellite office on their upcoming publication. Gallery visitors are welcome to stop by to chat with the director and learn about RFAOH. Also by appointment, co-director(s) will review proposals of non-art projects by local artists interested in applying to a future residency at RFAOH. These 30-minute sessions may also serve to openly "discuss" difficulties of living as an artist, or negotiating life within the artworld.
Please make an appointment for the proposal review session via email: info@residencyforartistsonhiatus.org

*Saturday afternoon free workshops + lectures on non-art activities*

On Saturday afternoons, co-directors and special guest artists will offer drop-in workshops and lectures on a wide range of subjects except art. Topics may include self-defense, food, music, health, and more. All are welcome – detailed information about each workshop/lecture will be updated on our calendar below [hover the event titles] and DHC/ART's FB event pages.

All events take place in the reading room of DHC/ART, 451 St. Jean Street, Montreal, Canada

Rob had a several plans, including living in the neighborhood of Balat in Istanbul, when he decided to take a hiatus from artmaking. Whether by uncontrollable circumstances or by choice, few of them were realized during his residency. He will join us in person to discuss on his RFAOH experience, and “intention versus reality” pertaining to life and art and hiatus. It’ll be followed by a mini-finissage of our "satellite office" at DHC/ART, before we pack it up and split! 3 pm - 5 pm
