In the first phase of the project, the organization will give $5,000 grants to 27 artists.
With New York City still shut down because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Brooklyn-based arts nonprofit Eyebeam, which was forced to put its flagship residency program on hold, is launching a new artist-led initiative called Rapid Response for a Better Digital Future.
A cohort of 30 artists have received funding to find creative solutions to 21st-century problems like surveillance, digital inequality and inherited trauma.
Writer and curator, Laura Raicovich, visited Eyebeam for a studio visit with our current residents. Here, she reflects on the work of Shannon Finnegan, Yo-Yo Lin, LaJuné McMillian, and Movers and Shakers (Glenn Cantave and Idris Brewster).
