To whom it may concern,

I hope this note finds you well and enjoying the summer! I am contacting you on behalf of the International Studio & Curatorial Program in Brooklyn, NY. We are currently working to promote The New York Community Trust Van Lier Residency, a fully-funded six month residency for artists of color, working in all areas of media, based in one of the five New York City Boroughs, and 30 years of age or younger.

Would it be possible for you to spread the word about ISCP's current open call to your audiences?

Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for your help!

A little about the opportunity:

About ISCP
Housed in a former factory in East Williamsburg, ​ Brooklyn​ with 35 light-filled work studios, two gallery spaces, and a library, ISCP is New York’s most comprehensive international visual arts residency program, and the fourth largest worldwide.

The residency program includes 24-hour access to a private furnished studio space, regular studio visits from visiting critics; field trips to museums, galleries and other cultural venues; and participation in artist and curator talks. In addition, artists in residence have the opportunity to have a studio assistant and develop projects in the public realm with the support of ISCP staff. Residents become part of a growing network of international artists and curators who are ISCP alumni. An ISCP residency has often led to critical advancement in the practice of the artist and curators in residence.

Among ISCP’s respected alumni are artists Kevin Beasley, Elmgreen and Dragset, Claire Fontaine, Theaster Gates, Camille Henrot, Yeondoo Jung, Chi Wo Leung, Maider Lopez, Carsten Nicolai, Jacolby Satterwhite, Tatiana Trouvé; and curators Vit Havránek, and Aneta Syzlak.
