This month, we closed our latest Creative Capital Award open application. It’s one of the most exciting parts of our work, when we invite artists working in all different disciplines and all over the country to submit their ambitious projects to us for support. The more than 4,000 submissions received span all genres, and applicants range in age from 25 to 96, and hail from all over the United States. We cannot wait to see what they have in store for us.
Every month, Creative Capital compiles a list of residencies, grant applications, and award opportunities as part of our commitment to sharing resources for artists working in all creative disciplines. This month’s opportunities include a residency on the coast of Ireland, and a grant for nonprofit arts spaces in the Bay Area.
Barbara Hammer, who forever changed avant-garde filmmaking by exploring lesbian identity and sexuality through experimental cinematic techniques, passed away in March 2019 due to cancer. We spoke to several artists who interacted with Hammer through Creative Capital and elsewhere in the art world—all of them recalled how much joy she exuded, even to her last days.
