The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York has selected visual artist Brian Duggan into its program for a minimum of three months during its 2013/ 2014 activities.
The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is a leading nonprofit, residency-based contemporary art institution for emerging to mid-career artists and curators from around the world. Founded in 1994, ISCP has hosted over 1,300 artists and curators from more than 55 countries, including the United States. In 2008, ISCP moved from Manhattan to East Williamsburg, Brooklyn to the former factory of the Sackett & Wilhelms Lithography Company, an 18,000 square-foot building constructed in 1901. This move expanded ISCP’s facilities to 35 studios, an exhibition gallery and a project space. To advance its core mission of supporting artists in producing and exhibiting a wide range of contemporary, often experimental, artistic approaches, ISCP annually presents a series of innovative exhibitions and public programs both on- and off-site. ISCP’s programming engages audiences in meaningful ways while fostering the institution’s relationship to its community. Each year, over 100 artists and curators are in residence at ISCP and approximately 10,000 individuals attend ISCP’s public programs.
Twice a year, in May and November, ISCP hosts four-day long Exhibitions in Open Studios, presenting work by the 35 ISCP artists and curators in residence, accompanied by live performances, panel discussions and exhibitions. During Exhibition Open Studios, residents present recent projects, work in progress, site-specific installations and their archives to over 2,000 professionals and art enthusiasts from New York and beyond.
