The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Spring Open Studios is a three-day exhibition of international contemporary art. The 27 artists from 20 countries currently in residence present work in their studios, including Paulien Oltheten, Rob Voerman, and Anouk Kruithof. The studio is a generative space – part production site, office, laboratory and situation – and it can be argued that it is more significant today for artistic process than ever before. Open Studios invites the public to 27 “studio visits” to experience art in its place of origin and to share conversations with artists from all over the world.

This series puts artists in conversation who have not shared a dialogue in the past and focuses on the vibrant and diverse cultural practitioners living and working in Brooklyn, both long- and short-term. On April 16th, Jonas Mekas and Paulien Oltheten will reflect on the spontaneous chronicling of life and human behavior.

Paulien Oltheten is artist-in-residence at International Studio & Curatorial Program – New York City

January 1 – December 31, 2013

Paulien Oltheten is artist-in-residence at International Studio & Curatorial Program. Paulien Oltheten creates series of photographs and videoworks which explore human relations in public space and examine the similarities and differences in cultures through physical activity. She extends the photo and video works by commenting with sketches and text and will restage behaviors from the photos and videos by herself or with the help of spectators. The result appears as a kind of archive, an anthropological study, and allows us to reconsider the context of reality. It is a study full of gentle humor.

Rob Voerman at ISCP

Rob VoermanDate: February 16, 2012

Source: Times Newsweekly, by Sam Goodman

News Item: A Brooklyn Warehouse for Aspiring Artists

Quote: Rob Voerman’s studio is the most cluttered of the three, and for good reason. Large pieces of wood litter the room, in preparation for a large sculpture he intends to display at a future show at The Armory Show in Chelsea in March.The structures, he explained, are large enough for people to step inside them, and the addition of pieces of colored glass create “another way of looking at the world.”

Fendry Ekel is artist-in-residence at the International Studio and Curatorial Program – New York City

January 1 – June 30, 2011

Fendry Ekel is artist-in-residence at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in New York.

Ekel’s paintings explore the dark side of human ambition. His monumental and layered works are often painted from photographs and depict portraits, architecture or other remnants of historic events. By isolating these images from our collective memory, Ekel critically investigates the use of art, architecture and figuration as propaganda for ideology and creates work ethic and aesthetic values meet. The specific moment when power becomes ignorance is the continuous subject of Ekel’s paintings. His work explores and attempts to fathom the motives underlying this perversion.

Fendry Ekel was born in Jakarta, Indonesia and raised in Europe. He studied at the Rietveld Art Academy and Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where he lives and works.

Raquel Maulwurf is artist-in-residence at International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) – New York City

Raquel Maulwurf is artist-in-residence at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in New York.

In trying to formulate an understanding of why mankind is so eager to destroy, Raquel Maulwurf bases her drawings on historical images which are then manipulated in such a way that only the essence of the event remains. The image no longer shows what we see, but what we know, making current events tangible. Maulwurf’s recent works have all been created on mat board. The thickness of the board allows her to brutalize the surface with sharp objects, depicting violence through violence. The surface is scratched open until the paper pulp almost pours out, literally materializing destruction in both subject and method.

She studied at the Art Academy of Arnhem, The Netherlands, and the SAE International Technology College Amsterdam.

David Jablonowski represents the Dutch Foundation for Visual Arts as artist-in-residence for 2011 at ISCP – New York City

February 2nd, 2011 by

January 1 – December 31, 2011

David Jablonowski is the official artist-in-residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) in 2011, selected and supported by the Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.

David Jablonowski questions the potential of communication in contemporary visual culture. Through sculpture and film, he explores the way language is established and developed and then reproduced technically in relation to political and historical discourse. Jablonowski’s interest in display systems and information transfer has as much to do with the hardware that is used in the staging of knowledge as it has with the knowledge itself. The repetitive and unsustainable promise of a valid direction of communication is expressed in works which question the understanding of sign systems; making us aware of the transience of visual language.
