The ISCP Spring Open Studios is a three-day exhibition of international contemporary art. The 35 artists, art collectives and curators from 24 countries currently in residence at ISCP present work in their studios. Open Studios offers the public access to innovative contemporary art practices from around the globe, providing an exceptional opportunity to engage with the production, process and archives of practitioners working within a diverse range of media, approaches and concepts.

Alongside Open Studios, ISCP’s gallery is the site for a continuous program of time-based events including performances, screenings and lectures that address how the concept of time is both constructed/deconstructed and employed through artistic production. Unfolding over the weekend, time is used as a material for eight separate events by ISCP residents and Brooklyn-based artists and their collaborators.

The gallery, transformed by SLO Architecture (Amanda Schachter & Alexander Levi), incorporates a specially designed platform for these events that functions alternately as a flowing canopy for presentation and communal tables for conversation. The lifting and lowering of the platform brings a spatial, performative and temporal rhythm that mirrors the events taking place. With an open thematic structure, the events explore storytelling, how the concept of time differs globally, collective memory, ruptures in straight time and the relationship between time, duration and memory.
