About ISCP

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) supports the creative development of artists and curators, and promotes exchange through residencies and public programs. Housed in a former factory in Brooklyn, with 35 light-filled work studios and two galleries, ISCP is New York’s most comprehensive international visual arts residency program, founded in 1994.

ISCP organises exhibitions, events and offsite projects, which are free and open to all, sustaining a vibrant community of contemporary art practitioners and diverse audiences. Over 1,250 artists and curators from more than 75 countries, including the United States have undertaken residencies at ISCP.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program’s mission is:

  • to support and enhance the professional development of emerging to mid-career artists and curators from around the world;
  • to introduce New York audiences to exceptional international art practices;
  • to engage communities of Brooklyn and the New York City area through public programs that enrich the appreciation and understanding of contemporary art.

Residency opportunity

All residents at ISCP are encouraged to take advantage of the in-house community of artists and curators, offering invaluable international and local networks, professional conversations and critique. The residency program fee is paid by The Dr. K. David G. Edwards and Margery Edwards Charitable Giving Fund Trust.

An International Program residency at ISCP is typically three to six months, although artists and curators can apply for up to one year. While in the International Program, all residents are invited to participate in a number of activities in and outside of ISCP including the four core program activities: Visiting Critics, Field Trips, Salons and Open Studios.
