Mothership NYC is a combined live-work space and presentation arena for international artists across multiple disciplines in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, NYC. Our mission is to support and promote artists at all career levels through residencies, public shows and collaborative opportunities; build sustainable transnational artist networks; and help retain creative forces in New York City.
Born out of the needs of emerging artists who come to New York City to take part in the cultural nexus, Mothership NYC was founded in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, in 2005. With a huge roof deck serving as an outdoor stage, our community of artist peers gradually and organically evolved into a destination for art events. The addition of an extra live-work space in late 2016 provided an impetus to professionalize our residency program. We aim to host between 6 to 12 official artists-in-residence per year for periods from 1 to 3 months, as well as several short-term visiting creatives. Today, our salons occur on a regular monthly schedule: On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, Mothership artists share the floor with local peers for presentations of their work, creative exchanges and good cheer. Additionally, our residents produce indoor and outdoor public events at a prolific pace, both onboard the Mothership and on our sister platform Last Frontier NYC.
