We could not be more thrilled to have @GavinRayna Russom — the legendary synth wizard whose iconic work with @LCDSoundsystem redefined a genre — performing at this year's Spring Gala! Russom's deep artistic practice of working out questions of personal identity through her music is exactly the kind of incisive, style-transcendent work we support our Artist-in-Residence in making, and the Gala makes that support possible to begin with. #nationalsawdustgala2019

Unlike some artists, luminary @CarrieMaeWeems has never shied away from embracing the explicitly political in her work. We're deeply commited to nurturing a new generation of artists who are similarly bold in their vision, and our Spring Gala will give us the funds we need to support their growth. As such, we could not be more honored that Weems herself will be making an appearance at National Sawdust's 2019 Spring Gala: Stretch #nationalsawdustgala2019
