The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is a leading non-profit, residency-based contemporary art institution in the United States.
Established in 1994, the ISCP has hosted over 1,900 artists and curators from more than 62 countries. It is located in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in a former factory, an 18,000 square-foot building constructed in 1901. The building has 35 studios for artists and curators, an exhibition gallery, and a project space. Each year, approximately 100 artists participate in the ISCP and over 10,000 visitors take part in the organization’s public activities.
Artists and curators are provided with a private, furnished studio and 24-hour access to all communal facilities. Tours of the ISCP’s facilities are organized regularly for American or foreign visitors offering the artists and curators-in-residence contact with numerous art professionals.
