Jacob Wick is an improviser, composer, writer, and artist. His work is dedicated to and informed by queer feelings and queer politics.

As an improviser and composer, he has performed his music and that of others in a variety of contexts, including at SummerStage in New York City, the Moers Festival in Germany, and the University Museum of Contemporary Art (MUAC) in Mexico City. He has performed with Matana Roberts, claire rousay, Gerald Cleaver, Katherine Young, Judith Hamann, Toshimaru Nakamura, and others.

As a writer, he has published in print and online, writing about art and art scenes throughout the US and Mexico. He was an associate editor for What We Want is Free: Critical Exchanges in Recent Art (SUNY Press, 2014). Most recently, his writing appeared in the “Alien” issue of Sound American (2020).

As an artist, he has organized projects in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and the Bay Area. In 2013, with the assistance of The Think Tank that has yet to be named…, he organized Germantown City Hall, a temporary city hall for the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia modeled after 19th-century anarcho-utopian town halls. 

Currently he works with a sextet and a quartet, both playing his compositions. The sextet, with Gibrán Andrade, Mabe Fratti, Alina Maldonado, Saúl Ojeda and Federico Sánchez, explores popular and not-so-popular songs from the last 100 years; the quartet, with Andrade, Sánchez, and Alonso Lópes-Valdés, performs his original jazz songs.
