 No Land

"vision seamstress winged" - (anonymous)

No Land's work continues in the lineage of the downtown NYC avant garde, honoring an intuitive vow towards creation. Her art evokes reverence for mystery in the forms of her paintings, drawings, photojournalistic works, films, & poet- performances with musicians. She has been guided by spirit encounters with downtown artists, poets, elders and activists, spending formative time amongst Occupy Wall Street's street-art revolutionaries, Steve Cannon's Tribes Gallery, and Anne Waldman's outrider poet worlds.

As a poet, bandleader & vocalist, she has performed at The Whitney Museum, the William Burroughs Bunker, Jazzfest Berlin, Crossing Borders Festival (the Hague), Enclave Festival (Mexico City), LaMaMa Galleria (NYC), The Kennedy Center (DC), The Poetry Project, Pioneer Works, Fotografiska NY Museum, & on NYC street corners during the pandemic.

She performs her poem-mosaic-ruminations with different 
formations of musician collaborators: Luke Stewart (Irreversible Entanglements), Bentley Anderson, Daniel Carter, Oliver Ray (Patti Smith Group) & others. She has curated performances & gatherings of her artist peers & communities since 2009 in NYC. 

In 2018, she released Authentic Artifice, an art-book of poetry and photographs, published by Newest York. Her photojournalistic work has appeared in the Brooklyn Rail, Disonare, The Village Voice, at Fotografiska Museum, Photo Saint-German (Paris) and in publications by Bill Moyers and Levy Gorvy Gallery. Her cinema work has premiered at The Poetry Project (NYC), Harvard University, Zebra Poetry Film Festival Berlin (2020), the John Giorno Foundation, The Woodberry Poetry Room, & elsewhere.

Her art was recently commissioned for the cover of Anne Waldman’s Bard, Kinetic book (Coffee House Press, 2023). Her forthcoming book publications include: The Velvet Wire 
with Anne Waldman (Granary Books) & Putting On Minds, a book of poems and artworks. Her collaboration with Oliver Ray "Cremation Piece" was released by the Allen Ginsberg Estate in 2023. She has taught/guest lectured at The New School, Rutgers University, University of New Haven, Naropa University, in prisons, NYC public schools & at No Land's experimental art school for young artists.
