Open Engagement 2019 / Emergent Futures: State of the Field
Open Engagement invites you to come together with other creatives for three days of exchanges and social research in Chapel Hill, Durham, and Greensboro.
Sinan Goknur and Max Symuleski present this experimental installation that juxtaposes images of nature, contemporary urban landscapes, and queer camp.
Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba
Mexico-City based artist Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba will be in-residence in the Ruby to transform the gallery into a space that questions how contemporary art can be used to understand extreme economic realities.
Welcome to the Ruby
Theater and Productions Studios
The 100-seat arts center film theater can screen both archival and digital formats. With the opening of the Ruby, Duke’s Arts of the Moving Image Program (AMI) has a new home for its teaching and production studios
The von der Heyden Studio Theater
The von der Heyden Studio Theater supports a wide variety of performances unlike any other venue on Duke’s campus. With a moveable seat platform, a huge projection screen, and windows that can let in natural light or be blacked out, it can be configured in many ways.
New studios for WXDU 88.7 FM
WXDU, Duke’s non-commercial, student-run radio station, has moved from East Campus into custom-designed studio space in the Ruby.
Take a class
There are three seminar-size classrooms in the arts center. By taking a class in the Ruby, or applying to teach your class there, you put yourself in the center of Duke's arts scene.
