We recently announced our partnership with local non-profit Residency Unlimited, who supports “the creation, presentation and dissemination of contemporary art through its unique residency program and year-round public programs”. Back in November we hosted an exhibit in the 351 Van Brunt Street space, which was our first event after partnering up, and it went very well! Check out this short video showcasing the work of four of their resident artists during that November show. They have also shared the news about our collaboration on their site. We are happy to spread the word about the latest RU event with all of you, which is starting this Friday with an opening reception. Read more about the artists here and the event below!

May Be A Donkey is an exhibition that brings together the experimental works of Swiss artists Myriam Casanova and Jérôme Stünzi, both artists in residence at Residency Unlimited in New York. The artists’ practices are rooted in the relationship between performance and living arts, and their process shaped by the referral to salvaged objects and their materiality. The performance playfully reflects on their collection that has been amassed during their six months stay in New York City. Their goal is not to give life to objects, but to turn them into performers.
Casanova and Stünzi summarize their artistic process in the following set of actions:
“Absorbing, collecting, cutting, enjoying, selecting, arranging, isolating, fixing rearranging, accepting, gluing, hesitating, testing, detesting, adoring, ungluing doubting, reordering, decomposing, celebrating, screwing, certifying, wasting recollecting, unscrewing, failing, choosing, breaking, reusing, visualizing, finalizing and starting again.”
