Art Made Under the Volcano Comes to Brooklyn
29 January 2020

New York crowds with fascinating museums: the Met, MoMA, and now the Transient Museum of a Thousand Conversations.

From January 28 to April 24, The Transient Museum of a Thousand Conversations: LIR at ISCP will take over a floor of the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn. An ongoing project by LIR Space, an independent arts institute based in Indonesia, focuses on preservation of collective memory in its founder’s hometown, which sits at the foot of an active volcano. The new exhibit at ISCP is an adaptation of this project, exploring subjects like national identity, storytelling, and food heritage.

LIR’s founders will give a talk at ISCP on February 11 at 6:30 p.m., and past LIR projects will be screened on April 10 at 6:30 p.m.

For a quarter century, ISCP has worked to support emerging and mid-career artists while introducing them to Brooklyn and broader New York audiences. Today, it is the world’s fourth largest visual arts residency program. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) provides operating support to ISCP.
