Undercurrent, defined as a body of water below the surface and moving in a different direction from any surface current, is a dedicated platform for contemporary art aiming to support quality and current/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 countries. This exchange augments our mission by providing a switchback, for a diverse and accessible platform distilling cultural perspectives in New York City. 
Undercurrent is a collective of artists who originated from Sla307 Art Space (2014-2019). Branching out we have regrouped and refined our mission and program to more accurately reflect one another and enhance the objectives we seek to attain in our new platform.
