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.

(n)IMBY Hobart/Gary

(n)IMBY Hobart/Gary uses community-sourced visioning and documentation to “unplan” a for-profit immigrant prison. The intervention joins two communities organizing against plans to build for-profit detention centers in their “backyards.” Participants’ imagery of protests and meetings are put on porcelain souvenir housewares for homes/diners/churches, thus linking and permeating resistance through public and private space.
