A NEW WEBSITE DEVOTED TO ARTISTS’ ANALYSIS OF TIMELY ISSUES FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE
After nearly a year of preparatory work, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of one of our most ambitious initiatives ever: Creative Time Reports, a multimedia website dedicated to artists’ analysis of contemporary social issues and news from around the world. Founded on the belief that artists’ voices are critical elements of public discourse, Creative Time Reports enables artists to disseminate original reporting and analysis in a variety of formats. The site also encourages public feedback and fosters ongoing dialogue across a variety of social-media platforms.
Creative Time Reports welcomes artist contributors from all disciplines, including both the visual and performing arts. Find current contributions from the likes of British multimedia artist Liam Gillick, writing on global finance from the Basque Country; artist Pedro Reyes, reporting on elections in Mexico; Haitian writer Jean-Euphèle Milcé in Port-au-Prince, documenting the political, material, and emotional aftermath of the catastrophic earthquake of 2010; Iranian-American comedian, actress, writer, and filmmaker Negin Farsad, who has produced a video comprising interviews outside the United Nations, during the General Assembly; and many others.
Today, the Internet is our global town square. As such, Creative Time Reports can provide an international platform for artists’ ideas about the issues that matter to them, and initiate broad-based dialogue. In addition to hosting original reports and timely updates about a wide range of issues, the site will encourage your feedback and foster ongoing dialogue, and will incorporate live feeds from Twitter (@artistsreport) and Facebook. Creative Time Reports will best succeed with your smart, thought-provoking responses, whether written in the comments section on the website itself, or posted on other social-media platforms.
Creative Time is grateful to the Rockefeller Foundation’s New York City Cultural Innovation Fund for its support of Creative Time Reports.
This afternoon at 2PM EST, we’ll be co-hosting a live panel with Artlog related to the launch of Creative Time Reports. You don’t have to be on Twitter to watch the live conversation, which will include panelists from SFMOMA, Art21, and the Whitney Museum, as well as artist Hank Willis Thomas and the creators of Creative Time Reports.
