Past Event
Though we have a pretty good handle on what art can be, and a working notion of what craft can do, we remain somewhat hazy on the exact day-to-day meaning of an artist residency. We see the maps described by geo-physical pings off nearby cell phone towers. We see the artists getting coffee in the mornings. And perhaps that is for the best. As time goes by, as we get more and more exposed to the strange things that artists do, mystery flies out the back door. What is an artist residency? Perhaps, after all, it is like The Simpsons definition of brunch: not quite breakfast, not quite lunch, but it comes with a slice of canteloupe at the end.
