The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is pleased to announce an open call for fully funded residencies plus modest materials stipend for two artists working in ecology based practices. Participating residents will research, develop and produce at least one project from their expanded research around Newtown Creek, a recently designated Superfund site, to be included in an ISCP exhibition. The invited artists will be selected based on their engagement with environmental and ecological issues, waterways and working with communities. The residencies and subsequent exhibition will be the first to involve local and international artists and Newtown Creek stakeholders on an expansive scale.
ISCP is currently accepting applications from visual artists in all disciplines who work with ideas related to ecology who would like to engage with ISCP’s unique and dynamic programming and creative community. 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 Talks. In addition, residents 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.
