International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) cordially invites you to our spring Open Studios.

A four-day exhibition of international contemporary art, this event presents work by the 27 artists and artist groups currently in  residence  at  ISCP.  The  current  residents  represent  an  inspiring  and wide range of conceptual interests and fresh artistic choices. These include hybrids, cross sections and traditional approaches to painting, drawing, video, performance, sculpture, sound, installation, artists’ books and architecture.

In  addition,  ISCP  proudly  presents  the  exhibition  Financial District,  organized  by Miguel Amado, curator-in-residence in  2009. The Financial District marks the urban landscape of all major American cities. More than an architectural feature or a geographical location, the Financial District represents an ideology, that of the ‘new spirit of capitalism’, which has developed over the past decades and has been recently questioned in the wake of the current  financial  crisis.  Financial  District  brings  together  residents  at ISCP, as well as New York-based and international  artists  whose  work  allegorically  responds  to,  comments  on, and speculates about the current economic climate.

ISCP presents Open Studios twice a year to give the public, art professionals and other art enthusiasts access to cutting-edge contemporary art from around the world. Free to the public, these events provide an exclusive peek into the production, process and personal archives of globally celebrated artists, many of them showing their work in New York for the first time.

Founded in 1994, ISCP has hosted more than 800 artists and curators who have significantly contributed to New York’s art community.  The  program  is  designed  to  connect  the  ISCP  participants  to local institutions, key professionals, and a broad range of international visitors. The interaction between artists, curators and critics at ISCP creates opportunities that support every stage of artistic production and development, offering a range of crucial,  career  advancing  exchanges such as  master  class  level critique, exhibition participation, long-term collaborations  and  gallery  representation.  ISCP continues  to  expand its programming to accommodate new directions  in  global  artistic  expression,  and  is  pleased   to open  a  new  floor  of  studios  and  additional public programs in 2009.

Founding Director Dennis Elliott and Program Director Kristine Siegel invite you to join us in the studios!
