OPEN CALL: Ground Floor Program at ISCP for New York City-based artists

The Ground Floor Program, geared exclusively for New York-based artists, provides one year of private studio space accessible 24/7, and additional program offerings.

Ground Floor applications for 2018 are now open with a deadline of October 15, 2017.

An information session will be held at ISCP for potential applicants for the Ground Floor Program at ISCP on Tuesday, September 19, at 6pm in ISCP’s Project Space.

RESIDENCIES: Twelve-month residency: January 1, 2018–December 31, 2018.

DESCRIPTION: ISCP’s first residency program developed specifically for New York City-based emerging artists was launched in 2015. This program offers up to seven year-long residencies that include a partially subsidized studio in East Williamsburg and access to professional development programs. The residencies take place within the same building as ISCP’s acclaimed international residency program, and artists have access to ISCP’s dynamic, in-house community of artists and curators from all over the world.

This program offers much-needed workspace to New York City artists, while expanding ISCP’s international community to include local artists. Artists working across all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Collectives can also apply to share a large studio and related costs. If accepted, artists must provide proof of New York City residency (e.g. income tax returns or utility bills) for the past two years.

Separate from ISCP’s international residency program, where residents are fully sponsored, the New York City-based artist studios, from 200-350 square feet in size, will cost $721-927 per month for a private studio. Shared studios are $463.50 per month. This includes 24-hour access to a furnished studio, kitchen and lounge, WiFi, administration and all utilities. Artists will have quarterly studio visits with established New York based artists. Ground Floor residents will receive invitations to numerous private social gatherings of the ISCP community. Artists will be eligible to propose a solo exhibition for ISCP’s Project Space annually. ISCP welcomes new and past applicants who formerly applied to the program.

Ground Floor is supported by Yoko Ono, Alice and Lawrence Weiner, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, New York City Council District 34, and The Jacques and Natasha Gelman Foundation.
