  Artist. Entrepreneur. 

  Community-Builder.  

Working with artists, creatives and visionaries to build the communities

in which we want to live. 

I am an artist, entrepreneur and CEO of Listings Project, a free weekly compilation of vetted real estate listings and other opportunities geared towards artists and creatives that is rooted in collective self-care and community building.

 

My projects reflect my strong sense of intuition as well as my lifelong obsession with communal and private space and the interplay between individuals and the public. 

 

As a social practice artist, I create with a community as opposed to for an audience. I am a certified 5Rhythms dance teacher and teach weekly classes in the Hudson Valley, NY. 

Listings Project began with my own apartment hunt 17 years ago and draws on the belief that we are our best selves when we feel both grounded as individuals and deeply connected to a vibrant, energizing public.

  "I sincerely respect your community as a place where we can talk  

  about our needs honestly, and value the voices of each other and  

  the connections between people. I feel that only then we can find  

  trust, quality and harmony in our daily lives."  - Shiho  

My work has been exhibited at MoMA, MASS MoCA, MoMA/P.S. 1, Studio Museum in Harlem, Queens Museum of Art, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Project Row Houses, Philadelphia Mural Arts, SculptureCenter and the Contemporary Art Center in Vilnius, Lithuania. I have been an artist in residence at MoMA/PS1, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Art Omi and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

  Art Practice 

I believe that everyone should have a grounding practice, whether it’s meditating or playing basketball or walking around the neighborhood. I found mine when I discovered 5Rhythms fifteen years ago. I became a certified 5Rhythms teacher and co-founded Hudson Valley 5Rhythms. I teach weekly group classes and one on one sessions in the Hudson Valley. 

  5Rhythms  

I am frequently called upon to present on my work at museums (Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA), universities (Columbia University, Parsons School of Design, Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design) and conferences (Arts in Education International Convening at Harvard University, Inbox Awesome in New York City).

  Speaking  

  “E-mails poured in to her from grateful  

  users: artists who inadvertently met soul  

  mates through a listing for a work  

  space, or artists who found homes that  

  seemed to have souls.”

  “Wednesday might be the least stressful  

  morning of the week for New York City's  

  legions of renters on the hunt for new  

  apartments: it's the day the Listings Project  

  shows up in subscribers' mailboxes.”

  “One of the last great secrets to finding  

  roommates, housing and work/studio space.”  

  “Stephanie takes submissions and goes  

  through them to make sure they aren't  

  submitted by brokers. Everyone on there has  

  just one apartment they want to fill; they're not  

  going to try to push you into something else.”

  “What she does is still art — what is  

  known as social practice art, art around 

  community-building.”
