Speed Dating with Artist David King Reuben @ The TAC Night Festival Hub | 44 Hudson St.

It's not what you think. Each participant will be given a 3 minute slot to peruse the whimsical world of David King Reuben, until the time-master says your time is up. You'll be able to ask the artist any questions you'd like to learn how he sees the world, creates, and stimulates his imagination—think speed dating, but with art.
This is a unique opportunity to meet and talk with an emerging artist, learn about his work in a speed dating format. Space is extremely limited: only 25 participants will be able to participate.
A special highlight is the exclusive opportunity for participants to have David capture the essence of their conversation in a live drawing performance. For this, you'll only need to bring a white plate and you'll walk away with a one of kind artwork. 
After meeting David King Reuben, participants will have be able to continue their journey by visiting any of the 25 venues or attending any of the 7 other events also featured during TAC night.


London born, New York based David King Reuben is a multimedia artist. When he first came to the city he gained prominence almost immediately in the underground art world, and is known for his expressive portraits and tableaus. In an empty warehouse space on Berry Street in Williamsburg (dubbed “The Madhouse”), Reuben and his cohorts threw a bacchanal every night of the week, resulting in hundreds of paintings, music and wild improvised DIY shows. “We used to keep the door open, because what was anyone going to steal—a painting or a song?” Reuben says. 
David keeps the “madhouse” spirit but has gone from shows in his garage to the most anticipated exhibitions in the city. From Art basel in Miami, to the Frieze Art Fair in London, his works continue to inspire conversation and veneration. Davids infectious spirit possesses everything that he works on, making each piece gleam with a distinctive kind of magic.
