One moment please...

The Renaissance Society is at its core a space of possibility. For artists, we offer a rigorous platform for bold experimentation. For audiences, we offer opportunities to engage deeply with art and artists who provide crucial responses to our times.

Your contribution to the Renaissance Society means that artists have the support and resources they need to realize ambitious, risk-taking projects. It enables the production of critical, scholarly, and creative publications, frequently artists’ first. And it allows us to maintain free entrance to all of our exhibitions, talks, readings, concerts, screenings, and other public programming.
