Get Directions

Undercurrent, defined as a body of water below the surface and moving in a different direction from any surface current, is a dedicated exhibition platform for art aiming to support contemporary art practices that are contrary to prevailing trends and movements. We showcase local and international contemporary artists with an inclusive subprogram of artists and creative entities of the Baltic states. This exchange augments our mission by providing a switchback, for a diverse and accessible platform distilling cultural perspectives in New York City.
