Prof. Stephanie Dinkins has received a 2019 Creative Capital Award for her project “Not the Only One,” a multigenerational memoir of a black American family told from the mind of an artificial intelligence of evolving intellect. It is designed by, trained inclusively and aligned with the interests and culture(s) of people of color.
The 2019 Creative Capital Awards represent 50 projects by 58 artists from all over the country. The projects span a range of genres, including literature, performance, the visual arts, moving image, technology, and socially engaged art.
Standout projects in this year’s final round were multidisciplinary, collaborative, and addressed the urgency of the current socio-political climate while evoking or referencing timeless conditions. The most successful applications utilized a specific lens through which to engage with a potent, yet often overlooked issue that relates to a broad and meaningful range of ideas. —Alice Gray Stites
