The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is a leading nonprofit, residency-based contemporary art center for emerging to mid-career artists and curators from around the world. ISCP has hosted over 1,000 artists and curators from more than fifty countries, including the United States.
In 2008, ISCP moved from Manhattan to East Williamsburg, Brooklyn—to an 18,000-square-foot former factory building constructed in 1901. This move expanded ISCP’s facilities to thirty-five studios, an exhibition gallery, and a project space. The following year, to advance its core mission of supporting artists in producing and exhibiting a wide range of contemporary and often experimental artistic approaches, ISCP launched a series of innovative exhibitions and public programs both on- and off-site. Today, ISCP’s programs engage audiences in meaningful ways while fostering the center’s relationship with its community. Each year, more than 100 artists and curators are in residence at ISCP and approximately 10,000 individuals attend its public programs.
ISCP’s mission is: to offer professional development for emerging to mid-career artists and curators from around the world by providing studio space and other opportunities through its comprehensive programs; to introduce New York audiences to exceptional, international artistic practices; and to engage communities in Brooklyn and the greater New York area through public programs.
