Beginning in January 2011, Residency Unlimited (ru) and Artists Alliance (AAI) joined forces to support each other’s programs with the following arrangement: RU provides studio visits and specific networking support to the artists participating in the AAI Lower East Side-Rotating Studio Program in the Spring and Fall. As the counterpart, AAI grants RU the use of its gallery space, CUCHIFRITOS, in the Essex Street Market as part of their Art(lnter)Action program.
Through this arrangement, in the summer 2011, RU programed 2 solo exhibitions of new work by Fred Forest (France) and Özlem GÜnyol and Mustafa Kunt (Germany/Turkey).
In the summer of 2012, RU programed the show Anton by Anton by Sonia Schonberger (Germany)
