06 SEPTEMBER 2019 / International Studio & Curatorial Program Announces Fall Schedule

For a quarter century, the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) has worked to support emerging and mid-career artists while introducing them to Brooklyn and broader New York audiences. ISCP has announced fall schedule for their 25th anniversary year.

From September 17, the exhibition Sonia Leimer: Via San Gennaro will be open to the public at the ISCP gallery. This first solo exhibition by the artist in New York includes sculptural and video components, the latter produced in collaboration with puppeteer and filmmaker Tony de Nonno. The work engages with the changing nature of New York City’s Little Italy.

Other fall events include bimonthly public talks and the resident artists opening up their studios to the public on November 15 and 16 and. On December 5 and 6, ISCP will hold a 25th Anniversary Symposium with New York Times co-chief art critic Holland Cotter.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program, which occupies a former factory in Brooklyn, encourages the professional development of artists and curators. Today, it is the world’s fourth largest visual arts residency program. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) provides operating support to ISCP.
