Artist Projects

On Our Radar

Welcome to On Our Radar, a searchable database featuring nearly 300 Emerging Fields, Literature and Performing Arts projects that advanced to the second or third round in last year's highly competitive award selection process.

Although these projects were not ultimately funded by Creative Capital, we feel they are artists to watch, and we invite you to explore them. This site will be online until September 30, 2016.

Cover Me/The Reckoning: A Manifesto for the Black Female Interior

Cover Me/The Reckoning: A Manifesto for the Black Female Interior is the creation/interpretation of songs for a genre-bending folk/jazz/soul/classical inspired soundscape/multimedia/narrative performance. Ruminating on the artist as a global citizen, the project wrestles with race, gender and the purpose and social responsibility of music creation. The piece highlights the black female interior and uses music creation as a tool for a sonic interventions/embodied petition exploring music's potential to inspire empathy for our lives.
