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.

Splinters in Our Ankles

Splinters in Our Ankles is the first part of a dance triptych that responds to the collective cultural amnesia that imbues the Philippine folk dance, Tinikling. Unearthing its violent colonial roots, this work highlights colonized bodies and performed resistance, departing from the way folk arts have traditionally portrayed Filipino culture.
