About the Residency

Artis is pleased to announce an open call for a two-month funded residency for two visual artists at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn, New York. Emerging and established visual artists from Israel, who may be living anywhere in the world, are invited to apply. 

The residency is an immersive experience into the art scene in New York. It is intended for a committed and self-driven artist who would benefit from dedicated time and space to develop their practice, while making new contacts with arts professionals that are part of ISCP and Artis’ international communities. Artis prioritizes proposals from artists who have a clear vision for what they want to achieve during the residency, and recognize the value of being part of a small and collaborative creative community. 

The artist-in-residence is provided with a small, private studio to work that is accessible by stairs, and staff support during office hours. Professional development opportunities that are part of ISCP’s programming, including studio visits with curators, group critiques, and trips to nearby museums and institutions, will be organized and held virtually and in-person. Artis will work closely with the artist to be a resource in New York.

The artist-in-residence will receive the studio at ISCP and programming free of cost. The artist will receive a monthly stipend from Artis to help offset living expenses, and limited travel grants are available to support round trip travel to New York. The artist is responsible for booking their own travel, securing housing in New York, meals, art materials, and other planning associated with the residency.
