Housed in a former factory in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn with 35 light-filled work studios, two gallery spaces, and a library, ISCP is New York’s most comprehensive international visual arts residency program, and the fourth largest worldwide.
The residency program includes 24-hour access to a private furnished studio space, regular studio visits from visiting critics; field trips to museums, galleries and other cultural venues; and participation in artist and curator talks. In addition, artists in residence have the opportunity to have a studio assistant and develop projects in the public realm with the support of ISCP staff. Residents become part of a growing network of international artists and curators who are ISCP alumni. An ISCP residency has often led to critical advancement in the practice of the artist and curators in residence.
