The Drift is a platform for artistic production and research that explores bodies of water as a context, site, and material. Since 2012, The Drift has worked with visiting artists and collaborative teams offering project-based commissions and residencies in relation to the confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers in Pittsburgh, PA. Their projects interface with the public through a series of curated programs including lectures, tours, publications and events.
