The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) is a leading nonprofit, residency-based, contemporary art institution in New York City for emerging to mid-career artists and curators from around the world.

Founded in 1994, ISCP has hosted over 1,400 artists and curators from more than 85 countries, including the United States. In 2008, ISCP moved from Manhattan to East Williamsburg, Brooklyn renovating, an 18,000 square-foot former factory constructed in 1901. This move expanded ISCP's facilities to 35 studios and 2 exhibition galleries.

ISCP strives to establish a global network of exemplary artists and curators and to provide them with support for producing new work. Tailored for professional growth, the program serves as an active mediator, creating visibility and immersion for its resident artists in New York City.

ISCP’s programming hybrid is conceived to facilitate dialogue and collaboration. Three integrated activity areas: the Residency Program, Exhibition Program and Participatory Projects, make ISCP an unparalleled platform for producing, presenting and contextualizing contemporary art through a diverse range of international perspectives.
