JACK Studio Artist

After receiving 443 applications from 34 states across the United States and 44 countries around the world, we are thrilled to announce the inaugural JACK Studio (formerly Fulcrum Project) artists: Eduardo Aguilar (Mexico), Khyam Allami (Iraq/United Kingdom), inti figgis-vizueta (United States), Brittany J. Green (United States), Elliot Reed (United States), and Olivia Shortt (Canada).

Each artist will receive $5,000, workshops, recording sessions, and performances with all travel expenses covered. A concert of JACK Studio works will be presented by Kaufman Music Center on May 2, 2020 as part of the 10th season of Ecstatic Music at Merkin Hall. Throughout the process, JACK will help pair artists with mentors for additional guidance and inspiration.

JACK Studio is made possible with generous support from the Adele and John Gray Endowment Fund, Anthony B. Creamer III, Peter Pohly, Elena Siyanko, John White, and a 2019 Avery Fisher Career Grant. JACK is also deeply grateful for our institutional partners, who make this possible through general operating support.
