Tori Abernathy (b. Miami, 1988) is an artist and organizer whose research explores rent, alternative finance, the city, social movements, and the home. She cooperatively founded RECESS, The Walking School, Portland Renters’ Assembly, Portland Tenants United, the Intentional Community in Exile (ICE), Future Working Models, Transition to a Perpetual Parade (TPP) and other initiatives. Lately, her work is focused on co-creating images of a future we’d actually want to live in, and working alongside others to collapse those futures into the present.
Based in Berlin as of Fall 2016.
