Brooklyn Residency Available to One Saskatchewan Artist


Application Deadline Extended To Jan 26, 2016


Creative Saskatchewan and the MacKenzie Art Gallery are pleased to announce that they will, for the second year in a row, partner to send a Saskatchewan visual arts professional to the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn, New York.



Application Deadline Extended To Jan 26, 2016



This joint initiative supports the professional development of Saskatchewan cultural producers working in the visual arts, and sponsors a Saskatchewan artist or independent curator to participate in a fully funded three-month residency at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn, New York, in the spring of 2016. 2015 marked the inaugural year for this exciting partnership, and saw Saskatchewan artist Zachari Logan attend the program. “The impact this residency has had, and continues to have, on my practice is immense,” said Logan. “The sheer amount of time spent in NYC allowed for so many contacts to be established and strengthened in one of the commercial and cultural capitals of the world. It was an amazing experience.” In the year since his residency, Logan has brought his work to market and exhibited in galleries in Regina, Toronto, Seattle, Atlanta, Verona and, most recently, at Art Basel in Miami.

“It’s an honour to be part of this exceptional program that will further the artistic practice of a Saskatchewan artist or curator in an international context,” said Anthony Kiendl, Executive Director & CEO of the MacKenzie Art Gallery. “ISCP is among the leading platforms to produce, present, and contextualize Saskatchewan art, and following the success of last year’s residency by Regina artist Zachari Logan, we look forward to administering this project again on behalf of our partners at Creative Saskatchewan.”


“This international residency provides an extraordinary opportunity for an exceptional visual artist from Saskatchewan to advance their career,” said Susan Whitney, acting chair of Creative Saskatchewan. “The remarkable success enjoyed by last year’s participant made it clear we needed to continue to support this initiative.”


Founded in 1994, ISCP has hosted over 1,900 artists and curators from more than 62 countries. Creative Saskatchewan and the MacKenzie join other international galleries and cultural centres who have sponsored artists to attend the ISCP, as well as Canadian funding bodies including the Manitoba Arts Council, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
