    [comment_content] => I agree with the original poster. Much is promised in this residency that is not delivered. No scientists on board. It is sponsored by a shell org that was set up by the individual director. This is not a research expedition, you will motor around the fjords in a boat that can be hired for pleasure cruises and there is not enough room or time to make artwork. Requesting time / space for work will result in the director yelling. He bullied the sailing crew and captain too. The location is amazing, and the idea is great but I would choose a different scenario that is not so personality driven and doesn't promise what can't be delivered - maybe rent your own ship for the same cost?

RUN! Upon arrival to this 3 day “Fine Art Fair” (November 8,9 and 10th, 2019), there were no indications for the direction of the show (the map they sent was missing the other half of the directions) or where to set up.
