2023 Summer Open House
ISCP announces Summer Open House 2023, a day of studio presentations by artists and curators currently in residence. This event is free and open to the public.
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.
Three artists-in-residence will present performances during the event:
Starting at 7:00pm in Studio 219, Coralie Vogelaar will present Multi-Gesture Gym, a performance incorporating sound and sculpture comprising recombined deconstructed fitness devices, with choreography by Marjolein Vogels, performance by Avery Gerhardt, and soundscape by Hendrik-Jan Grievink.
From 7:30–8:15pm in Studio 304, Gregor Petrikovic will present a film installation accompanied by a live score performed by composers J. Mordechai and Jacob “NTHNL” Rudin.
At 8:30pm, Nadia Markiewicz will premiere her new work Bad Star in ISCP’s loading dock. In this performance, Markiewicz attempts to reclaim the grotesque body in the context of a scary story; she faces the archetype of the wrongdoer from a subjective point of view.
Alchemyverse: Messa in Luce, an exhibition by resident collaborative artist duo Alchemyverse, curated by Jess Wilcox, will be on view in the first floor project space. Messa in Luce is an immersive scale-shifting installation of work developed in and about Chile’s Atacama Desert. The artists invite exhibition goers to walk onto an elevated floor that vibrates with desert audio and houses artifacts from their field work, which can be viewed from above.
In addition, WAVE PHENOMENA: contemporary strategies of sonic agency, an exhibition by Atomic Culture, the 2023-24 ISCP institution-in-residence, will be on view in the 2nd floor gallery. The exhibition manifests the potential of sound as a catalyst for personal, political, and environmental reflection, and explores the practices of artists working within or around sound, presenting discourses on sonic agency.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
