The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) invites you to our fall Open Weekend on November 16, 17, 18, and 19.
ISCP hosts Open Weekends twice a year to give the public, art enthusiasts, and art professionals access to ISCP’s artists and curators
in residence from around the world. Free to the public, the Open Weekend presents recent artworks and projects by artists and curators
from twenty countries working in the program’s 26 studios. The current residents represent a wide range of conceptual interests
and aesthetic concerns that take form through painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, performance, video, fi lm, new media, artists’
books, criticsm, and architecture.
Founded in 1994, ISCP has hosted more than 550 artists and curators whose participation at ISCP has resulted in substantial career growth, while contributing to the diversity of New York City’s international arts community. ISCP’s approach to programming is focused on connecting its residents with local institutions and independent practitioners, and introducing local audiences to contemporary art practice from all over the world. The interaction between artists, curators, and critics creates opportunities supporting every stage of artistic development – intellectual exchange, critical feedback, invitations to participate in exhibitions, and gallery representation to name a few – with the ultimate goal of promoting awareness of the diversity of global artistic expression.
This Open Weekend is the last in our current space at 323 West 39th Street, presenting recent work by thirty artists and curators hailing from twenty-two countries. ISCP participants are planning special projects for installation throughout the common spaces of ISCP in addition to several time-based works, to be announced as the Open Weekend approaches. Founding Director, Dennis Elliott and Program Director, Sara Reisman welcome you to join the ISCP participants in their studios on November 16, 17, 18, and 19, 2007.
