The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is pleased to announce its Fall Open Studios, a four-day exhibition of international contemporary art. This event presents works by the 38 artists, collectives and curators from 26 countries currently in residence at ISCP and offers the public access to innovative contemporary art practices from around the world, seen for the first time in New York City. Open Studios also provides an exceptional opportunity to engage with the production, process and archives of artists and curators working with a diverse range of mediums, approaches and concepts.
Opening alongside Open Studios, Factory Makers, curated by Kari Conte initiates a four-part exhibition over the next year that takes ISCP?s site of production ? a historic printing factory ? as the starting point to reflect on the changing nature and idea of work in society and how we define labor today. This exhibition presents seven international artists who address the impact of the world?s rapidly changing economies on new social and cultural realities. Through various approaches, the included works consider the effect of globalization, new modes of 'outsourced' production and the blurring boundaries of material and immaterial labor. A 1978 work by Mladen Stilinovi? begins the exhibition and asserts non-productivity as critical to the creation of art. Artists include Matei Bejenaru (Romania), Factory of Found Clothes (Russia), Cao Fei (China), Chen Chieh-jen???(Taiwan), Jean-Marc Superville Sovak (USA), Stephanie Syjuco (USA) and Mladen Stilinovi? (Croatia).
On Saturday and Sunday, November 6th & 7th at 4 pm, ISCP will host two separate presentations by ISCP curators-in-residence, Elisabeth Byre (Norway) and Svetlana Kuyumdzhieva (Bulgaria), who will screen selections of video work and present their curatorial practices
