ISCP (International Studio and Curatorial Program)
1040 Metropolitan Avenue , 718-387-2900
November 9 - November 11, 2012
Reception: Friday, November 9, 7 - 9 PM
The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Fall Open Studios is a three-day exhibition of international contemporary art. The 36 artists, art collectives and curators from 24 countries currently in residence at ISCP present work in their studios. The studio is a generative space – part production site, office, laboratory, and situation – and it can be argued that it is as significant today for artistic process than ever before. Open Studios invites the public to 36 “studio visits” to experience art in its place of origin and to share conversations with artists and curators from all over the world.
Alongside Open Studios, Clark House Initiative, Bombay organizes a program as part of their ISCP institutional residency. Clark House Initiative is a curatorial practice about a place, which in sharing a junction with two museums and a cinema, mirrors the fiction of what these spaces could be. Clark House Initiative presents a performance and the exhibition AY-ZEQ: Two Burmese Artists Meet Again as well as a meeting between Burmese artists Htein Lin and Sitt Nyein Aye. This will be the first meeting between the two artists and friends since 1988 during the 8888 Uprising against the military regime in Burma.
