The International Studio & Curatorial Program announces Brooklyn Commons 2018, an ongoing discussion series that presents intellectual and artistic pairings between the established Brooklyn-based artist community and ISCP artists in residence.
This series, initiated in 2012, puts artists in conversation who have not shared a dialogue in the past and focuses on cultural practitioners living and working in Brooklyn, both long- and short-term.
This year’s series presents talks between Ulrike Müller and Taloi Havini, Suzanne McClelland and Sonia Louise Davis, and Haim Steinbach and Remy Jungerman. Müller and Havini will discuss the activation of history and the socio-political dimensions in their work; McClelland and Davis will speak about the intersection of sound, language and abstraction; and Steinbach and Remy Jungerman will consider the recontextualization of existing objects, and the cultural meanings of display.
Brooklyn Commons is organized by Kari Conte, ISCP Director of Programs and Exhibitions.
Past participants in this talk series include Vito Acconci, Martha Rosler, Jonas Mekas, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Tehching Hsieh, and Fred Wilson, among others.
ISCP is New York’s most comprehensive international visual arts residency program. ISCP supports the creative development of artists and curators, and promotes exchange through residencies and public programs.
