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.

Hands Up Dis/Unity: make this not us against them

Hands Up is an immersive installation, performance and contribution to the anti-racism movement, Black Lives Matter. A five-member interdisciplinary team is collaboratively developing the 80-minute work. Themes of race and abolitionism emerge through the artists’ exploration and experimentation with pop culture, queer aesthetics, dance and visual art.

Baker & Tarpaga Dance Project is a collaboration of Esther Baker-Tarpaga, Olivier Tarpaga, Raquel Monroe, Duane Lee Holland, Jr., Heidi Wiren Bartlett and Barber.
