The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is a premier residency-based contemporary art center in the United States for emerging to mid-career artists and curators from around the world. Founded in 1994, ISCP has hosted over 1,000 artists and curators from more than 50 countries, including the United States. In 2008, ISCP moved from Manhattan to East Williamsburg, Brooklyn to the former factory of the Sackett & Wilhelms Lithography Company, an 18,000 square-foot building constructed in 1901. This move expanded ISCP's facilities to 36 studios, an exhibition gallery and a project space. To advance its core mission of supporting artists in producing and exhibiting a wide range of contemporary, often experimental, artistic approaches, ISCP recently launched a series of innovative exhibitions and public programs both on- and off-site. ISCP’s programming engages audiences in meaningful ways while fostering the institution’s relationship to its community. Each year, over 100 artists and curators are in residence at ISCP and approximately 10,000 individuals attend ISCP’s public programs.
