About the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP)
Now celebrating its 25th anniversary year, the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) supports the creative development of artists and curators, and promotes exchange through residencies and public programs. 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 program, founded in 1994. ISCP organizes exhibitions, events and offsite projects, which are free and open to all, sustaining a vibrant community of contemporary art practitioners and diverse audiences. Over 1,500 artists and curators from more than 80 countries, including the United States have undertaken residencies at ISCP.

About the artists
Fatma Bucak (born 1984, Iskenderun) lives and works between London and Istanbul. She works in performance, photography, sound, and video, centre on political identity, religious mythology, and landscape as a space of historical renegotiation. Investigating the fragility, tension and irreversibility of history, the power of testimony, and memory in her practice, she questions traditional forms of history-making as well as cultural and gender norms. Born in Turkey, she studied Philosophy and Art History before completing her MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art in London. Bucak has exhibited work at Fondazione Merz, Torino; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; and 54th Venice Biennale, Tese di San Cristoforo –Arsenale, Venice, among others. 

Danilo Correale (born Naples, 1982) currently lives in New York City. His work analyzes various aspects of human life such as labor, leisure and sleep through the lenses of time and the body. His recent works focus on speculation about post-labor society, nonaligned subjectivities, idleness and withdrawal. He is the founder of the Decelerationist Reader and a regular contributor to publications in the field of critical theory. Correale’s work has been presented in numerous group exhibitions including the Manifesta 8, Murcia, Spain; Moscow Biennial; and Istanbul Biennial. Recent solo shows include Tales of Exhaustion, La Loge, Brussels, 2016; The Missing Hour: Rhythms and Algorithms, Raucci/Santamaria, Naples, 2015; The Warp and the Weft, Peep-Hole, Milan, 2012; Pareto Optimality, Supportico Lopez, Berlin, 2011; and We Are Making History, Entrèe, Bergen, Norway, 2011.
Helene Førde is an interdisciplinary artist working with installation, sculpture, sound, mechanical or interactive elements, and performance. She uses a site sensitive approach throughout her practice. Førde is interested in exploring perception, awareness, memories, context, and the particular history and character of a space. Her recent works also reflect on cultural history, traditions and patterns of living, in the face of new times, change and prevailing politics. Helene Førde has exhibited at Galleri F 15, Moss Norway; Møre & Romsdal Art Center, Molde, Norway; and has shown work as part of Bonn Hoeren, Bonn, Germany, among others. She is the winner of the sound art competition Sonotopia 2015.

Hektor Garcia (born 1985, Red Bluff, California) is multidisciplinary artist who approaches sculptural installation through wide-ranging experiments with craft techniques and materials. Throughout his practice, he develops a lexicon of crochet, weaving and fibre-work, including the use of ceramic, metal, leatherwork, found materials, and the principles of assemblage and social sculpture. Garcia is in constant pursuit of modes of making and presentation that trouble the division between so-called high and low culture. ektor garcia has exhibited work at Art Basel, Switzerland and kurimanzutto, Mexico City, among others.


Chiara Fumai’s (Rome, 1978–Bari, 2017) work will represent Italy at the Venice Biennale in 2019, along with two other artists.
