Susan Hapgood, Director, ISCP
Susan Hapgood gave an introduction to ISCP (International Studio & Curatorial Program), the organization she directs in New York City. ISCP supports the creative development of artists and curators and promotes exchange through residencies and public programs. Housed in a former factory in Brooklyn with 35 light-filled work studios, two galleries and a project space, ISCP is New York’s most comprehensive international visual arts residency program, founded in 1994. ISCP organizes exhibitions, events and offsite projects that are free and open to all, sustaining a vibrant community of contemporary art practitioners and diverse audiences. Over 1,200 artists and curators from more than 70 countries, including the United States, have undertaken residencies at ISCP. Each year, over 100 artists and curators are in residence and approximately 10,000 individuals attend ISCP’s public programs.
ISCP’s mission is threefold: 1) to offer exceptional professional development and ample work space for artists and curators; 2) to introduce New York audiences to outstanding international artistic practices; and 3) to engage communities in Brooklyn and Greater New York City through public programs. ISCP continuously builds a global network of exemplary artists and curators and supports them to develop and produce new work. The program facilitates creative and professional growth and creates visibility and immersion for its residents in New York City.
