ISCP Lenore G. Tawney Residency Call for Fiber Media Artists

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) announces an open call for a fully-funded residency, plus living and materials stipends (approximately $2,680 per month) for visual artists who live in the United States and are eligible to work in the US (applicants must hold a Green Card or be a citizen of the United States, other visa types are ineligible).

ISCP is currently accepting applications from visual artists working in or interested in fiber media, who would like to be immersed in ISCP’s unique and dynamic programming and creative community. The residency program includes 24-hour access to a private furnished studio space, regular studio visits from Visiting Critics; Field Trips to museums, galleries and other cultural venues; and participation in Artist Talks. In addition, residents have the opportunity to have a studio assistant and develop projects in the public realm with the support of ISCP staff. Residents become part of a growing network of international artists and curators who are ISCP alumni. An ISCP residency has often led to critical advancement in the practice of the artist and curators in residence.

RESIDENCIES: Three-month residency: July 1 – September 30, 2019.
LOCATION: International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP), 1040 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211
