The SOUTHERN THEATER, Minneapolis, Minnesota, as fiscal agent for SAVAGE AURAL HOTBED, received $8,000 in support of the creation and production of the new work The Rate of Mass Displacement is Momentum at the Southern Theater. The Southern presents alternative performances by artists responding to contemporary issues and life situations from the perspectives of the varied cultural communities in the Twin Cities. Savage Aural Hotbed is an ensemble of four composer-musicians who create highly percussive music and sound experiences using found objects, industrial machines, and musical instruments. The composer-performers are Mark Black, William Melton, Stuart DeVaan and Dean Hawthorne. The changing urban landscape, which includes building and destruction, is the basis for this new work. Savage Aural Hotbed envisions a symphony of steel, the rhythmic cadence of pile drivers accompanied by pulsing, droning engines and whining motors, with beeping back-up signals providing counterpoint.

MOLLY WORRE, Minneapolis, Minnesota, CARRIE VOLK, St. Paul, Minnesota, and CARRIE BUSH, Minneapolis, Minnesota, were awarded a grant for Golden Hour, a mixed media HD and 16mm narrative short about a man named Jim who wakes up to the gray world around him. He suffers from dementia and is desperate to remember his past. His memories are tangled together in filmstrips projected in the black box of his mind. He relies on his book of prompts and Post-It reminders to carry him through the daywithout them, simple tasks like remembering to turn off the stove and take his medication are completely forgotten. Jim wanders alone in life but chases the fragmented memory of a lost love. As the visions of this love are revealed, his memories begin to invade his realitysnow speckled streets are blurred with crashing waves and hot summer sand. Jim becomes consumed with unraveling the Golden Hour. Near the end of the film, as his fragmented memories come rushing back in full clarity, he realizes the missing memories stolen by dementia have been romanticized and are better left forgotten.

BARI PEARLMAN was awarded support for Daughters of Wisdom, a feature-length documentary about the rebuilding and revitalizing of Northeast Tibet through the education and cultivation of women to their fullest potential. Situated on the Eastern Tibetan plateau north of the Himalayas, the Nangchen district of Kham (now China's Qinghai Province) is home to an estimated 60,000 subsistence farmers and nomadic herding families. Relegated to subservient roles in their families, the women of Nangchen have for centuries been regarded as simple creatures capable of little more than churning butter, bearing children and saying prayers. A woman in this culture has had to choose between marrying and being a servant to her husband, or becoming a nun, and remaining a servant to her family. But now, for the first time, the women of Nangchen are being given the skills and opportunities to become active participants in preserving Tibetan cultural heritage, improving their local educational infrastructure, and preparing their people to effectively navigate the encroaching modern world. This film will present a vividly intimate portrait of the lives of Nangchen's women.

Directors authorized a grant of $5,000 to the SCULPTURECENTER, Long Island City, New York, in support of the In Practice series. The mission of the Center is to engage with artists in evolving the definition of contemporary sculpture, and offer programs and exhibitions that place sculpture in a rich aesthetic, cultural, and historic context. The exhibition program includes solo and group shows that identify key aspects of contemporary sculpture. The Center also maintains a project residency program that supports artists in the creation and exhibition of large-scale and/or complex projects. The In Practice series supports the creation of innovative work by emerging and under-recognized artists who are encouraged to consider any area of the building as a potential site and to experiment with the exhibition format in terms of presentation and life span of the work. In Practice includes sculptural objects, installations, performances and art works that operate between disciplines. Submissions to the In Practice series are reviewed by a panel of independent artists and curators and SculptureCenter curators. In Practice artists' projects are documented in the Center's biannual publication.
