Started by Angeles Cossio and Jeff Thompson in the summer of 2010, Drift Station acts as a non-traditional curatorial platform for innovative exhibitions, art, music, and performance based in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA. Working within limited geographic and financial means, we are rethinking how art can be transmitted not transported.  We are interested in exhibitions that allow artistic projects from around the world to be seen in locations that might not otherwise have access.
