Episode 027: Taking a Break, Artists on Hiatus, with Matthew and Shinobu was released on the Back to the Drawing Board podcast on Monday, October 15, 2018.
What happens to artists when do not make any art for a while? Are they still artists? What do they do with their time? Do they evaporate into thin air?
I sat down with Matthew Evans and Shinobu Akimoto, the co-directors of the Residency for Artists on Hiatus, to talk about the motivation behind the project, some of the non-art activities the residents do, and what happens after the residents finish the residency.
If you've been curious about art breaks, art blocks, or wondered if you should give up on art, then this episode will surely touch your heart.
Did you know that more recently, Matt and Shinobu returned on the podcast to catch me up on what's changed and where the Residency for Artists on Hiatus is today? Take a listen here!
