Peter Brock is an artist and curator. He received his MFA in painting from Bard College in 2014, and has exhibited at 83 Pitt Street, NYC, Calle Cedro 328, Mexico City, Plan 5, Stockholm, and Federico Vavassori, Milan. His work explores an expanded notion of landscape by conflating technological and biological modes of perception and representation. Brock is also the founder / director of The Fort, an independent exhibition space in Fort Greene, Brooklyn that produced ten exhibitions with underrepresented artists between 2015 and 2018. He has been working on developing a collaborative exhibition, residency, and publishing platform committed to inclusivity, transparency, collective ownership and profit-sharing. 

Peter explored self-organized art spaces and interviewed the artists and curators involved in running them. He gathered experiences and perspectives from these independent spaces and sought to build connections with similar projects in NYC.
