Asae Soya: Ringing Waves

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) and the New York City Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Art Program are pleased to announce Ringing Waves, a temporary art installation on the bridge at 45th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues by artist Asae Soya. Soya’s mural visualizes the multitude of sound waves that pervade New York City, such as voices, traffic noises and music. Sound waves circulate within the city generating a force of energy. In addition, the wave forms in this work are a metaphor for the numerous perspectives that coexist within this city.

Asae Soya received her doctorate in painting from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2006. Her awards include the First Prize in Vision of Contemporary Art, 2002 and the SHELL ART AWARD, 2002. Her recent solo exhibitions include sora-iro, Art Tower Mito, 2013; Float, Nishimura Gallery, 2011; Swim, Obuse Museum, 2011 and Ringing, Shiseido Gallery, 2010. Her group exhibitions include shows at Fuchu Art Museum, Art Tower Mito, Sezon Museum of Modern Art, and PYO Gallery, Beijing. Soya has major public works in the Sankei Building, Totsuka Ward Office, Art Tower Mito, Takamatsu City Museum of Art, and Tokyo Station Gallery. In 2013, Soya’s collection of works Asae Soya: sora-iro (color of the air) was published by Seigensha Art Publishing.

The New York City Department of Transportation launched the Art Program in October 2008 to invigorate the City’s streetscapes with engaging temporary art installations. The Program partners with community organizations and artists to present murals, sculptures, projections, and performances on public property such as plazas, fences, barriers, footbridges, and sidewalks. Soya’s Ringing Waves is part of Participatory Projects, ISCP’s program that commissions new works by current residents and alumni in the public realm. This is the eight collaboration between the two organizations.

Special thanks to Agency for Cultural Affairs, the Japanese Government, KANEKA Corporation, the National Endowment for the Arts, Marcus Pierce Fine Art, Gaku Tsutaja, Hiroshi Taguchi and Taeko Nanpei for their support.

Fall Open Studios 2014

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Fall Open Studios is a three-day exhibition of international contemporary art. The 34 artists and curators from 22 countries currently in residence present work in their studios. The studio is a generative space – part production site, office, laboratory and situation – and it can be argued that it is more significant today for artistic process than ever before. Open Studios invites the public to 34 “studio visits” to experience art in its place of origin and to share conversations with artists from all over the world. Visitors will have access over the three days to international contemporary art practices in a studio setting as well as through ISCP’s 20th anniversary alumni exhibition.

Alongside Open Studios and through January 30th, 2015 ISCP presents the exhibition New York Stories: Twenty Years of ISCP. This exhibition, organized on the occasion of ISCP’s 20th anniversary, includes work by 17 ISCP alumni that – in the broadest sense – considers the global city of New York from the perspective of an artist-in-residence.

New York Stories: Twenty Years of ISCP

This exhibition, organized on the occasion of ISCP’s 20th anniversary, includes work by 17 ISCP alumni that – in the broadest sense – considers the global city of New York from the perspective of an artist-in-residence. ISCP is part of New York City’s continuous state of flux and welcoming spirit: it supports artists in residence to connect with the city in meaningful ways, and to become a part of its magnetism and energy. New York Stories: Twenty Years of ISCP presents work by ISCP alumni that responds to being in this city and incorporating that lived experience into their work. All the included works were realized in response to the city itself, and reshape how we see and understand it.

Artists: Balam Bartolomé, Taysir Batniji, Maura Biava, Christine Coenon, Jacqueline Doyen, Patrick Hamilton, Laura Horelli, Anna Jermolaewa, Anouk Kruithof, Kakyoung Lee, Marklinger + Waerndt, Max Pam, Bundith Phunsombatlert, Karen Elaine Spencer, Axel Töpfer, Christoph Weber, and Yamashita + Kobayashi.
