Join us for Spring Open Studios, a two-day exhibition of international contemporary art, at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP). The 38 artists and three curators from 19 countries currently in residence will present work in their studios. The studio is a creative place for thinking, experimentation, and production, more integral to artistic practice in New York’s hyper cultural environment than ever before. Open Studios invites the public to experience art in its place of origin and to share conversations with art practitioners from all over the world.

Guest speaker Tom Finkelpearl, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, will make opening remarks during the opening reception on Friday, April 29, at 6pm.

Three exhibitions
ISCP has invited Lugar a Dudas, a non-profit artist-run organization based in Cali, Colombia as the 2016 annual institution-in-residence. As a laboratory for artistic research, Lugar a Dudas facilitates the development of the creative process and provokes community interaction. A Room for Doubt: Lugar a Dudas at ISCP is an exhibition and series of experiments in relocating and translating local practices to a new context, in ISCP’s second floor galleries. The exhibition focuses on the operations that take place when artworks, stories and references are moved and adapted for new locations, audiences and languages. On April 30, from 2 to 7pm, visitors to A Room for Doubt: Lugar a Dudas at ISCP are invited to participate in reconstructing Con la comida no se juega (Do not play with your food), a 1997 work by Colombian artists Juan Mejía & Wilson Díaz.

The sixth of the series of seven Staging micro-exhibitions organized by a group of seven curators from the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS), is presented in the first floor Project Space. Stage #6 presents ISCP ground floor resident Lourdes Correa-Carlo's work, curated by Christian Camacho-Light. An assemblage of architectural elements and construction materials set against painted walls, Down-Below is a tableau—with the vents, pipes and rods protruding from the platform becoming as much the extremities of a body as those of a building.

ISCP’s off-site exhibition Vieno Motors: How to Prepare 2.0, a project conceived by Ilona Valkonen and curated by resident Satu Oksanen, is on view today and Saturday, from 4 to 6pm, at El Museo de Los Sures, located at 120 South 1st Street, Brooklyn. This project is in the collection of the Helsinki Art Museum and reflects on anarchist botany, engages fellow artists and the public, and involves the creation of sculptural adornments made from flowers and found materials. These wearable pieces are made specifically with the visitor in mind, as part of a conversation and exchange. Guest artist Gabriel Specter will create wearable art for each visitor to take away from the exhibition.
