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 Burnin' (Plantation Remix)

The Burnin' (Plantation Remix), an a’capella musical, offers a performative tour of historical U.S. plantations to raze/re-work/reimagine separatist genres of plantation reenactments by rehabilitating the “antebellum glory” singular story, investigating America’s systemic racial legacies and encouraging dialogues of healing through shared histories/multi-perspective narratives of both enslaved and slave-owning families and their descendants.
