The Brooklyn Visual Arts Residency supports professional visual artists and curators from Manitoba to undertake a three-month residency in Brooklyn, New York, at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP). The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is a leading non-profit, residency-based contemporary art institution in the United States.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP)

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.
