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.

The Assembly
Brooklyn, NY


Seagullmachine, a site-specific theatrical work, is motivated by a conviction that distraction has become the most insidious threat to participatory democracy in the U.S. Combining two iconic riffs on Hamlet—Chekhov’s The Seagull and Heiner Muller’s HamletmachineSeagullmachine dramatizes the role of the troubled activist-intellectual who revolts against social paralysis.

The Assembly is a collaboration of Jessica Chayes, Nick Benacerraf, Stephen Aubrey, Emily Louise Perkins and Edward Bauer.
