Grey Paper Crane began 2.5 years ago with the staging of a play called Mad Life Imagined. Ever since, we've carried out organizational experiments to see what was needed by this group.
What project does the artistic community need and how do we respond to need?
In this next year, GPC will approach our work in a journalistic and curatorial approach, to highlight and celebrate intersectional artists and the work they make. Evermore, we will think of this big question...^
In January last year we mentioned creating an artist database and now we're well on our way! Click to see our artist database. Which is a growing list of intersectional artists we want to connect with each other and provide info for you.
And on a monthly basis we write an in depth profile on 1-2 artists from the database. We're calling it Project #3: Artist Profiles. click here to read them.
If you know someone you think we should include, please contact us.

Edit: Project #3: Artist Profiles is no longer a monthly release editorial. GPC will release the profiles when they are in the best developed form. The timeline is sporadic. Over a period of one year when I decided to start the project I noticed that the artists I wanted to interview and create a profile about are very busy, I am also very busy. But I didn’t want that to be the reason we didn’t write about them and moved on in order to meet deadlines. True fact: working artists have overloaded timelines, these are contemporary realities I decided to consider and accommodate for. The process and the health of people far proceeds timeline. While I engage with new artists every month, the development of their profile may take longer than one month. — Bertha Lee, April 2, 2019
