The Meal Based Artist Residency Program

If you’ve been following Public Collectors’ work for the last couple years, you’ve probably heard about the Joong Boo Residency Program. For that project Marc Fischer from Public Collectors invited out of town artists to apply for a residency that consisted of Fischer taking the artist resident to eat Korean food at Joong Boo Market in Chicago’s Avondale neighborhood, at no cost to the resident. After 38 of these residencies, the project has ended, but not before inspiring several similar residencies in other cities. This booklet describes the ideas and intentions behind the project, includes sample full-length reports on three of the residencies by Fischer, and reflections from 20 of the residents who detail their experience.
