About the Watershed Laboratory

The Watershed Lab locates MTA’s work as incubator, residency center, and rural presenter upstream of New York City, where its surging energy sustains a creative symbiosis between rural and urban New York. Its primary streams consist of partnerships with a range of presenters, in which MTA serves as the headwaters—the incubator site supporting the creation of new artworks. Just as the Catskills’ mountains, streams, and reservoirs send water downstream to the city, MTA’s rural setting generates original works—and relationships—that travel downstream to NYC and beyond.

2019 Curatorial Team: Mathew Pokoik, Curatorial Director; Laurie Berg and Liliana Dirks-Goodman, AUNTS Organizers; Jaime Shearn Coan; Carter Edwards; Barbara Bryan and Anna Adams Stark, Movement Research; Marýa Wethers; Tara Aisha Willis
