Jessica McCormack is an independent communications professional specializing in contemporary art and culture. She has ten years of professional experience in a wide range of roles in the art world including supporting the corporate and government fundraising team at the Art Institute of Chicago; client relations at Sotheby’s in New York; personal assistant for contemporary artist Jeff Koons in New York; managing strategic media partnerships and marketing campaigns for exhibitions and special projects at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; media relations for MOCAtv, the the Museum of Contemporary Art's YouTube channel; and most recently launching and providing continued communications support for several new galleries in the ever-expanding arts district neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles.
In addition to her communications career, Jessica, along with Mara Mehdy of Creative Collective LA, founded Show + Tell Projects a new pop-up art/design concept store and project space highlighting LA’s emerging creative talent in the worlds of contemporary art, design and wellness. Encouraged by an undying entrepreneurial sprit and being surrounded by so many inspiring friends and colleagues in Los Angeles, Show + Tell Projects provides a platform to support their work in a meaningful way. In 2014, Mara started a women’s focused group called Creative Collective LA that focused on building community through monthly curated events throughout the Los Angeles Area with a special focus on wellness. Mara and Jessica noticed that in their respective communities of art + wellness, there was an opportunity to connect these audiences and Show + Tell Projects was born.
Jessica holds a master’s degree in strategic public relations from the University of Southern California and received her bachelor’s degree in art history with a minor in french from DePaul University. Originally from a small town in Wisconsin, Jessica feels lucky to have had the opportunity to experience life in Chicago, Paris, New York and now Los Angeles.
