in honor of our decade-long commitment to building an active and supportive artistic community in New York and worldwide.
Since our founding, RU has hosted 529 artists and curators from over 42 countries, invited 1,195 visiting curators, critics, and art professionals, organized 121 exhibitions and produced 208 public programs.
Our 10-year anniversary benefit will be a celebration of gratitude for RU's creative community of residents, partners, staff, supporters, and audiences. Join us for performances by David Lynch’s muse, Chrysta Bell, Joey Arias, and DJ set by Carlita. The evening will be catered by Chichi Eats and will include cocktails and desserts envisioned by Jordan Nassar, and of course our holiday photo booth installation is back with photographer, Mami Kosemura taking pictures!
The night will close with RU's signature annual raffle draw for a fully-funded artist’s residency. This year's residency will take place in Jinxi, China at the
Points Center for Contemporary Art in 2020.
