International Studio & Curatorial Program's Summer 2019 Open House

July 17th, 2019

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) announces the second edition of Summer Open House, an evening of live performances and studio presentations.

Come and celebrate a summer evening with friends. Engage in conversations about international contemporary art with arts professionals from around the world. This event features indoor and outdoor components in ISCP’s loft building on the border of Bushwick and Williamsburg. Founded in 1994 and now its 25th year, ISCP was established to support the creative advancement of an international community of artists and curators in New York City.

Summer Open House will include three live performances curated by Hsiang Huang (Curator and CEO, Yu-Hsiu Museum of Art, Taiwan) with assistance from Alexia Pierre. From 6:15-7:00pm, artists Paolo Bini, Joshua Liebowitz and Honkasalo-Niemi-Virtanen will present new performance works outdoors on the loading dock of ISCP. Rhythmic and fluid, the performances are choreographed around three points of entry and exit. Each performance will articulate a new form of exchange and dialogue, engendering audience participation through the use of objects, spoken word or physical gestures.

The 37 artists and curators from 23 countries in residence at ISCP will open their studios to the public from 7-9pm.

6:15-7pm: Performances by Paolo Bini, Joshua Liebowitz and Honkasalo-Niemi-Virtanen

Performance of Chiara Fumai's 'S.C.U.M. Elite' at ISCP (NYC)


February 12, 2019, 6–8pm: I will be performing in the reenactment of The S.C.U.M. Elite (2014) by pioneering feminist artist Chiara Fumai (1978–2017).

Fumai’s hybrid practice was deeply rooted in performance and her interests were far-reaching—encompassing radical feminism, chaos magick, terrorist propaganda and Italian Autonomist Marxism. In her work, she frequently deconstructed ideologies that have impeded women’s empowerment. Fumai performed as marginalized historical figures, transmitting occult messages that revived forgotten or discarded narratives.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program announces the opening of LESS LIGHT, an exhibition of work by Chiara Fumai , a 2017 ISCP alumna. The artist’s first solo exhibition on this continent, LESS LIGHT brings together two of Fumai’s pioneering works, The Book of Evil Spirits (2015) and Dogaressa Elisabetta Querini, Zalumma Agra, Annie Jones, Dope Head, Harry Houdini, Eusapia Palladino read Valerie Solanas (2012-13), as well as a reenactment of the performance The S.C.U.M. Elite (2014) at the opening reception.
