The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Spring Open Studios is a two-day international contemporary art exhibition presented by the 39 artists and curators from 28 countries currently in residence. Guest speaker Chi Ossé, chairman of the Committee on Cultural Affairs, Libraries, and International Intergroup Relations and council member for New York’s 36th District, will speak at the opening reception.
Twice a year, the ISCP offers the public access to the private studios of artists and curators to view works of art and share one-on-one conversations. Concentrated in a three-story, post-industrial loft on the edge of Bushwick, ISCP supports the creative advancement of residents, with a robust program of individual workspaces and professional benefits.
The following two exhibitions will also be presented:
Sharon Norwood’s living room: a solo exhibition by Sharon Norwood, curated by ISCP alumnus Dr. Petrina Dacres
