The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Spring Open Studios is a two-day exhibition of international contemporary art. The 38 artists, artist collectives and curators from 22 countries currently in residence will present work in their studios. Twice a year, ISCP invites the public to Open Studios to view artwork and share conversations with artists and curators from all over the world. Concentrated in one three-story postindustrial loft building on the edge of Bushwick, ISCP has supported the creative advancement of residents for over twenty years, with a robust program of private individual workspaces and professional benefits.

ISCP has invited the Centre for Contemporary Art Lagos (CCA), an independent non-profit making visual art organization founded in December 2007 and based in Nigeria, as the 2017 institution-in-residence. Works by three artists from Nigeria—Kelani Abass, Taiye Idahor and Abraham Oghobase—will be featured in the exhibition Orí méta odún méta ibìkan, originally presented at CCA Lagos in 2016 and reconstructed at ISCP during Open Studios. Selections from the institution’s archives will also be included in the exhibition.

'Gazelle Lost in Watts,' curated by Pat Elifritz, MA candidate at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, will be on view in the Project Space throughout Open Studios. With contributions by past ISCP residents Julie Béna and Megan Francis Sullivan, current ISCP Ground Floor resident Raul Valverde, and poet Harmony Holiday, this exhibition addresses archival research. Gazelle Lost in Watts is organized around a poem of the same name by Harmony Holiday, and considers how every unique point of departure shapes the way history is understood.

Temporary tattoos designed by residents Pekka & Teija Isorättyä will be provided free by Tattlyhroughout the event, and a limited edition by Cary Leibowitz will be available for purchase.

Gorilla Cheese NYCYC will be at ISCP Open Studios on Friday, April 21, from 6-9pm.
