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.

A Thousand Times You Lose Your Treasure

Part verse meditation and part documentary on 1960s Vietnam, A Thousand Times You Lose Your Treasure is a poetic narrative that will include a verse biography focusing on the artist's mother, Diep Nguyen, a stunt motorcyclist in an all-woman circus troupe, to investigate historical, personal and cultural pressures of the period. It will culminate in a book-length collection of poems.
