Temple Bar Gallery + Studios invites applications from artists for the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Residency in New York.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Residency supports an Irish or Ireland-based artist to spend three months in residency at ISCP in Brooklyn, New York. Housed in a former factory in Brooklyn, with 35 light-filled work studios and two galleries, ISCP is New York’s most comprehensive international visual arts residency programme.

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios and International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) are pleased to announce an open call for a fully funded residency, including living and materials stipends for visual artists. This opportunity is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland. TBG+S and ISCP are currently accepting applications from Irish visual artists worldwide, and visual artists currently resident in Ireland who would like to engage with ISCP's unique and dynamic programming and creative community.

"I loved my time at ISCP. You're given a studio in Brooklyn with a lot of international artists at various stages of their careers, and you have the chance to be introduced to curators, writers and visiting artists who's research interests might chime with yours. But above all, it was great to be financially supported to live and work in New York City for three months. It allowed me to initiate a new body of work, form some lasting relationships and broaden my knowledge of contemporary art worlds beyond Ireland and the UK.” - Sam Keogh, TBG+S/ISCP awarded artist 2021

The residency includes 24-hour access to a private furnished studio space; regular studio visits from visiting critics; field trips to museums, galleries and other cultural venues; and participation in artist talks. In addition, residents have the opportunity to participate in ISCP’s renowned Open Studios event. Residents become part of a growing network of international artists and curators who are ISCP alumni. An ISCP residency has often led to critical advancement in the practice of the artist and curators in residence.

All artists based in Ireland and Irish artists based abroad are eligible to apply for the International Studio & Curatorial Program Residency.
