at The Former Church of the Epiphany
RenBen 2024 will be entirely orchestrated by New York–based artist Kevin Beasley who works in sculpture, sound and performance, with deep collaborative ties to esteemed musicians and other artists and performers within his own creative circle. Beasley carries on the newly established tradition of artist-conceived events, following in the extravagant footsteps of Piero Golia in 2022 and Adam Linder in 2023. On this occasion, the Renaissance Society will be honoring our long-time supporter and inspiring advocate for art and artists, Gael Neeson. For the first time, this year’s RenBen is aligned with EXPO ART WEEK.
RenBen is the Renaissance Society’s annual gala which raises a significant portion of the museum’s annual budget, enabling new artistic commissions, scholarly discourse, and lasting publications.
“Elegantly wrought, at times brassily bombastic, with moments of shimmering magic, humor, and just the right amount of romance, [RenBen 2022] was all those things …” - Andrew Berardini, ARTFORUM
