He creates a line of handmade screenprinted multiples on various cloth and paper goods, that have been featured in venues such as the New Museum Store, Printed Matter, Art Metropole, Bloomingdale’s, and the artist’s website, j-morrison.com.

His newest project, “Space is the Place”, is an independently run, performance art/event series, organized and curated by j. morrison. Celebrating its first year in operation, SITP has successfully presented 20 shows, independent of outside funding and free of cost to the audience. Conducted within temporary and unconventional vacant spaces (as a byproduct of the recession/economy), one-night shows are executed using the concept of undefined territory as a creative impetus. Original site-specific events feature artists, musicians, and performers both solo and in collaboration.

j. morrison’s work has received national and international recognition, and has received mention in publications such as The New York Times, New York Sun, Time Out New York, Out Magazine, Lapiz, Paper Magazine, Jane Magazine, and Salon. For more info please write to james@j-morrison.com.
