ISCP invites professional artists who are First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to apply for a six-month residency at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in New York City, from July 1 – December 31, 2018. This residency will support the development of an Indigenous artist, expand discourses on Indigenous art, and foster deeper international collaboration with New York City and Indigenous artistic communities. This call is open only to Indigenous contemporary artists with Canadian passports, working in all mediums.
ISCP’s international residency program benefits include: 24-hour access to a private 300 sq. ft. furnished studio space; regular studio visits from visiting critics and an appointed advisor; field trips to museums, galleries and other cultural venues; and participation in artist talks and Open Studios events. Residents are also invited to take part in ISCP’s exhibition program and offsite projects.
Pending full acceptance by ISCP and, separately, by the Canada Council for the Arts, ISCP’s participation fee for six months will be fully covered, and additional allocations to cover individual travel and living expenses in New York City will also be awarded to the successful applicant.
Applicants may seek additional support for an onsite or offsite exhibition project, to be developed while in residence, which will further the awareness and impact of contemporary Indigenous art in New York City.
