Radyo Shak

This year, in collaboration with Clocktower Radio, the 4th Ghetto Biennale of Haiti will have its own community and international radio station, broadcast directly from a specially constructed shack in the Grand Rue area of Port-au-Prince. We're calling it Radyo Shak.

Follow the Clocktower team's adventures through the streets of the bidonville and in the Radyo Shak radio headquarters, and stay tuned as a roster of over 60 artists, film-makers, academics, photographers, musicians, architects, and writers congregate in the Grand Rue to make and witness art. Keep an eye on this page for updates straight from Haiti!

Adam Stennett, Arctic Artist Survival Shack

Artist Adam Stennett spent the entire month of February 2016 in the Pioneer Works' garden, without spending a dollar or entering a building for warmth. How? Living in the Arctic Artist Survival Shack, a dwelling of his own design that has everything one needs for physical and spiritual survival. Outfitted with a wood-burning stove, mushroom insulation, and a highly efficient rainwater catchment system, the artist spent his days painting, scavenging, surviving, and leading workshops for the School of Apocalypse program at Pioneer Works. In this interview, Clocktower's Jake Nussbaum visits the Shack to discuss apocalypse strategies, the relationship between creativity and survival, and the joys living off the land (even if it's Red Hook). Plus: how to build a rocket stove from found objects and start a fire with nothing but an old broken TV! Adam Stennett (born, 1972 in Kotzebue, Alaska) is an internationally exhibited American painter based in Brooklyn, NY best known for his hyperrealist works.
