The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Spring Open Studios is a two-day presentation of international contemporary art by the 29 artists and 2 curators from 23 countries currently participating in the residency program. Award-winning modern and contemporary art writer Aruna D’Souza will make opening remarks each day reflecting on why artists and curators should be thinking about Lorraine O’Grady. D’Souza is the curator of the artist’s first retrospective, now on view at the Brooklyn Museum.
