International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP):

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) located in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn is one of the most significant residency programs in the United States. 

ISCP is a microcosm of New York’s cultural diversity: multi-national, multi-lingual and multi-faceted. Precisely for this reason ISCP makes a concerted effort to build up an intensive relationship between its artists and curators, and the local art community, while connecting the local art community with contemporary art practice from all over the world.

Participating artists are given the opportunity to meet with many of the international and local visitors to the program. ISCP welcomes, from over 50 countries, curators, gallery owners, journalists, writers, artists and personnel from foundations and residency programs who can meet the artists within the framework of open studio programs and studio visits.

The program offers support for the artists’ adaptation to the local art scene and helps them to make connections. Participants are continuously informed of the most recent art programs as well as invited to various professional and social events throughout their residency.

More than 500 artist and curator have participated in the program of ISCP. As the result of the ISCP’s professional work most of them have built up intensive connections with the participants of the art scene in New York and had the opportunity to exhibit in the United States and abroad.
