Residency Unlimited (RU) is a New York based not for profit arts organization that fosters customized residencies for local and international artists and curators at all stages of their career. Collaboration and partnerships are at the heart of our mission as we strive to respond to changes in the overall field and particularly in artists’ practices.
RU forges strategic partnerships with collaborating institutions to offer customized residencies designed to meet the individual needs of participating artists and curators. RU works together with residents and partners to develop a residency experience that optimizes opportunities while meeting the goals, needs, and visions of participating artists and curators.
RU is particularly committed to promoting multidisciplinary practices and to building lasting connections between residents and the broader arts community.
In addition to the residency program, we run year-round public programs and cover a broad range of topics at the forefront of contemporary art practice and critical discourse. Our ability to leverage resources through our partnerships has resulted in highly diverse and creative programming that has successfully led to new creative and career opportunities for its residents. Since 2009, we have hosted the residencies of 182 artists and 28 curators. In 2014, we hosted 44 artists and 11 curators.
