Description

Learn how artists can apply for the Creative Capital Award valued at $100,000, including $50,000 in project funding, and an additional $50,000 in career development services—all dedicated to supporting artists complete their innovative project ideas. The application, opening February 2020, is free and open to artists working in all disciplines across the country.

Creative Capital staff will present an overview of the organization and answer questions about the application process, the type of work they support, and how to apply. The session is free and open to the public—artists in all disciplines are encouraged to attend. For this session, we will be joined by Jon Rubin, an awardee and interdisciplinary artist.

Check out Creative Capital's website for more information about the application and the Creative Capital Award. Please watch this information video about the application to help you come better prepared to this info session.

We look forward to meeting you!

Note: Capacity is limited and entrance is on a first come, first served basis. If you can't make this Info Session, we will have a series of online sessions.


About Jon Rubin
Jon Rubin is an interdisciplinary artist who creates interventions into public life that re-imagine individual, group, and institutional behavior. Rubin collaborated with Tehran-based artist Sohrab Kashani on The Other Apartment on view at the Mattress Factory. In this Creative Capital Project, the two artists worked from detailed photographs taken by Kashani—who is not able to travel to the US due to the current travel ban—to meticulously recreate his Tehran apartment and all of his personal possessions at the Mattress Factory Museum in Pittsburgh. Kashani has used his apartment in Tehran as a space for exhibiting contemporary art and as an artist residency. From September 2019 through July 2020, Kashani and Rubin will operate the two spaces as one in The Other Apartment—producing exhibitions, programs, and events where every object, video, and performance that happens in one space is reproduced for the other, keeping both apartments identical across the 6,300 miles that separate them.
