ISCP FALL OPEN STUDIOS 2017
FRIDAY, NOV 10 2017 - SATURDAY, NOV 11 2017
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Fall Open Studios is a two-day exhibition of international contemporary art presented by the 36 artists and curators from 22 countries currently in residence.
Twice a year only, ISCP offers the public access to the inner sanctum of artists’ and curators’ studios to view artwork and share one-on-one conversations. In these current times, spaces for open discourse are more important than ever—we invite the public to engage in dialogue around contemporary art with arts professionals from across the globe. Concentrated in a three-story postindustrial loft building on the edge of Bushwick, ISCP has supported the creative advancement of residents for over twenty years, with a robust program of private individual workspaces and professional benefits.
ABOUT THE AUSTRIAN ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE
Mathias Pöschl (born 1981, Vienna, Austria) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in 2008. His work has been exhibited in solo and group shows at institutions, galleries and art fairs including Leopold Museum, Vienna; 21er Haus – Museum für zeitgenössische Kunst, Vienna; The Armory Show, New York; Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Vienna; Sotheby’s, Vienna; Galleri Ping-Pong, Malmö; Frieze, London; Nya Perspectives, Västerås; Neuer Kunstverein Wien, Vienna; as well as in various self-organized shows in temporary exhibition spaces around Austria.
In his research-based practice, Mathias Pöschl seeks to investigate the relation of visual culture and political agenda, generating ensembles of works by juxtaposing representations of historical incidences and realities in a wide range of media and materials. In an effort to hint at new insights into the basic conditions of what it means for a work of art to be called political, Pöschl tries to exploit the cognitive potential of contradictions and misreadings, employing dialectic approaches to arrive at, or suggest, new narratives.
