International Studio & Curatorial Program Residency

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.

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is invited annually to coordinate an open call and shortlist a visual artist for a three-month residency at ISCP in 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.

This residency provides the awarded artist with a high-quality studio, living stipend, travel costs, studio visits and off-site trips to museums, galleries and other cultural organisations. It supports the artist with a significant experience on a programme designed to build international networks, as well as contributing to the artistic community in a major city.

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

"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, ISCP Residency, 2020

The next open call for International Studio & Curatorial Program Residency applications will be announced in early 2023. The application form and guidelines on how to apply will be available to download approximately one month prior to the deadline.
