2022 Summer Open House
ISCP announces Summer Open House 2022, a day of studio presentations by artists and curators currently in residence. This event is free and open to the public.
Reserve your free timed ticket here. Tickets are required for entry.
Come and celebrate a summer evening with friends and take part in conversations about international contemporary art with arts professionals from around the world in ISCP’s loft building on the border of Bushwick and Williamsburg. Founded in 1994, ISCP was established to support the creative advancement of an international community of artists and curators in New York City.
Getting Blood from Stone, a solo exhibition of Steven Anthony Johnson II’s works, recipient of The New York Community Trust’s Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund residency at ISCP, curated by Re’al Christian, will be on view in the first floor project space. The exhibition is the synthesis of Johnson’s collection of cross-diasporic narrative from different time periods, presenting drawings and sound compositions that probe and process inherited trauma, and grapple with queerness, Blackness and class issues.
In addition, Lizania Cruz: Every Immigrant Is a Writer/Todo Inmigrante Es un Escritor, a solo exhibition of works by Lizania Cruz, an ISCP International artist-in-residence, will be on view in the 2nd floor gallery. The exhibition delves into individual and collective experiences of Black immigrants and first-generation Black Americans, culminating in the artist’s five-year project, We the News. It encompasses the many creative and participatory formats that Cruz’s iterative project has taken since 2017, ranging from community story circles, a newsstand display of zines available for visitors to activate, to workshops convened for immigrants to trace their routes to get to the United States.
Summer Open House is hosted by ISCP’s Young Patrons, a dynamic group that offers unique contemporary art events and programming, and provides support for institutional programs and operations. For further information and to become a member, please contact email@example.com.
