Established by artists Jasper Johns and John Cage in New York City, The Foundation for Contemporary Arts, offers financial support and recognition to contemporary visual and performance artists who create work of a contemporary, experimental nature.
FCA’s Emergency Grants provide urgent funding for artists who have sudden, unanticipated opportunities to present work when there is insufficient time to seek other funding sources, or who incur unexpected expenses for projects close to completion. Emergency Grants is the only active, multi-disciplinary program that offers immediate assistance of this kind to artists living and working anywhere in the United States.
Object of Her Affection has been made possible through generous funding from The Jim Henson Foundation, The Center for Cultural Innovation, a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant, The Anna Sosenko Assist Trust, Kickstarter, and Hatchfund – with additional support from The Automata Residency Program, The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, REDCAT, Impro Theatre, Harvard Westlake School, and Los Angeles Performance Practice.
