ISP–International Artists’ Program

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. 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. Each year, over 100 artists and curators are in residence at ISCP and approximately 10,000 individuals attend ISCP’s public programs.
