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.

Exit 43

Exit 43 is a scoring of malice in Underland spanning two books. It conducts a lyric archaeology of the Superfund site across the street from the author’s home that is sporadically interrupted by an opera of graphic pop-up pastorals—tracing the pathways of an ex-copper rod mill and landfill’s mining sources in the Andes, and the aftermath of copper salvage operations from Harlem to Accra.
