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.

Amok is a multidisciplinary ensemble performance piece, created by Karen Yates. It employs actors, movement, sound, and live Javanese gamelan music to focus on the collision of colonial history, capitalism and modern geoscience thru the lens of Indonesia. Separate curated public events and festivals involving art, film, food, music and commerce allow audiences to experience the themes in Amok more deeply.
