The 60th New York Film Festival, presented by Film at Lincoln Center, kicks off September 30-October 16. Here are our picks of five must-watch films by Creative Capital Grantees Daniel Eisenberg, Laura Poitras, Elisabeth Subrin, Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor, and Cauleen Smith.


This summer, Creative Capital connected with artists all over the country from New York’s Creative Capital Carnival with 800 artists and guests in-person and online to our Los Angeles Artist Gathering with dozens of artists and patrons to Santa Fe’s 100th Anniversary of Indian Market—which brings together 1,000 Native artists from more than 100 tribal communities.


From coast to coast, and across the pond, Creative Capital Grantees are presenting must-see works that invigorate this fall’s art season. Here are a few of our top picks.


Faye Driscoll, described by the The New York Times as a “startlingly original talent,” frames her dance performances as a shared rite of passage with her audience. Since receiving the Creative Capital Grant for her Thank You For Coming trilogy in 2013, Driscoll has embarked on a long-term creative endeavor exploring issues of perception and connectivity. As the Los Angeles premiere of the final installment of the trilogy nears at REDCAT, Driscoll shares about her practice, what she hopes to achieve, and finding joy in art.


We’re excited that three of our Creative Capital Grantees have been nominated for their powerful work in this year’s Emmys in the News & Documentary category: Michèle Stephenson (2019), Tamara Shogaolu (2020), and Ramona Diaz (2019). Keep reading to learn about their projects in competition.


A darkly comic ode to mothers, immigrants, and dreamers everywhere, Wes Hurley’s 2019 Creative Capital Project, Potato Dreams of America, has been a lifetime in the making. The autobiographical film shares the American Dream from an immigrant’s perspective, tracing the story of Hurley and his mother as they came to America in the 1990s—her as a mail-order bride, and him as her gay, closeted son. The film is now available on DVD, video-on-demand, and limited-edition Blu-ray.


Creative Capital artists are taking the world by storm! This year, a number of our grantees are showcased in the Venice Biennale—and being honored for their contributions.


Every month, Creative Capital compiles a list of residencies, grant, and award opportunities as part of our commitment to sharing resources and opportunities for artists working in all creative disciplines. These opportunities have deadlines in September and October 2022.


Summer is in high swing and it’s an excellent time to seek shelter with a pile of good books. Whether you’re looking for poetry, fiction, essays, or a graphic novel—check out these recent publications from Creative Capital writers that are perfect to add to your bookshelf.
