The international studio & curatorial program (iscp) is pleased to announce its next Open Weekend on May 7, 8 and 9, 2005.

iscp open weekends are held semi-annually, bringing participants and public together while presenting new art from around the globe. The event is free, provides access to 26 private studios and a chance to meet with artists and curators on-site. A wide range of media and aesthetic positions are presented, from painting, drawing, sculpture and installation, to video, film and new technologies.
iscp is a visual arts residency for emerging to mid-career artists and curators, most of whom are sponsored into the program, having been selected by the pre-eminently qualified juries of government cultural agencies, cultural institutes, and external affairs departments. A chance to participate in iscp is highly coveted worldwide and artists and curators vie for the opportunity. The consequence is of twofold advantage: standards of excellence are surpassed each year and the program is already booked late into 2006. iscp’s appeal lies in its single most distinguishing characteristic: the concerted effort it makes to connect its artists and curators to the local community, while connecting local audiences with contemporary art practice from all over the world. The ripple effect is a high achievement record and a jump-start to international careers: many alumni are now represented by New York galleries and/or have been included in numerous exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad.

Out of almost 400 participants in its first decade of operation, iscp has hosted only 17 American artists. The program has become increasingly pro-active as it seeks to address under-representation and bring public attention to the lack of funding opportunities for individuals in the arts, especially in the United States. Thanks to the National Endowment for the Arts, The Sam & Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts and the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation, iscp will be hosting four American artists in 2006. Full details of this pilot program will be announced in June of this year.
