Undiscovered Countries is a Brooklyn based incubator of new and developing interdisciplinary art, founded in Fall 2012. We present subversive and accessible work by artists lacking conventional support to foster a diverse, engaged community. Images of work I've done there are below, all photo credits to Liz Rogers.

As one of the founding members I help curate a cohesive and varied bimonthly collection of pieces; contacting, booking and commissioning, and supporting artists and writers mid-process, in addition to producing the event itself. My other responsibilities include producing and coordinating online and print publicity, helping with day-of installation and continued advocating for and troubleshooting with artists. This year, we launched Undiscovered Countries Press, a new collaborative visual art and writing publishing house.
