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.

Sycorax's Garden

For Sycorax's Garden, Candice Lin will create a manicured garden of plants that have been used as forms of resistance in feminist, anti-colonial, and anti-slavery histories: mostly abortifacients and poisons. Drawing on European Renaissance landscaping traditions, the garden's arrangement—featuring highly structured, clipped hedges and plants organized in geometric formations—teases out the contradictions between botanical resistance and ideologies of rationalism and control.
