Artists-in-Presidents: Fireside Chats for 2020
In this creative project directed by artist Constance Hockaday and co-produced by Stanford Live and UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance (CAP UCLA), fifty artists will be paired with notable speechwriters to find their presidential voice. In a series of podcasts, clips, videos, and more, these artists recast the presidency and address the nation alongside the 2020 election campaigns.
Critically-acclaimed playwright Daniel Alexander Jones, United States Artists President and CEO Deana Haggag, filmmaker and writer Miranda July, and comedian and theater performer Kristina Wong are slated to deliver national addresses. The conversations kick off the week of Sep. 14 and coontinue until the election in November. Visit Artist-in-Presidents project page for the latest, including the full list of participating artists.
