The Mondriaan Fund has a studio available at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York City. The ISCP is a renowned institute that introduces working visual artists from around the world to the New York art scene. They also invite international artists and curators with whom the ISCP residents can exchange ideas.

Since 2008, the ISCP has been located in the village of East Williamsburg in Brooklyn, with 35 studios for young and mid-career artists. The residents live in a single-room apartment (35m2) in Manhattan and have an ISCP studio to work in. Twice each year, ISCP residents’ work is presented at open studios. All residents are expected to be present for the open studio days and open their studios to visitors. Field trips are also organized and ‘salons’ are held each month. The ISCP residents are invited to introduce their recent work to an audience comprised of (young) New York artists and curators. The second floor of the ISCP building includes a gallery where ISCP residents can show their work. Selections for the exhibitions are made by the ISCP curator.

Previous ISCP residents include James Beckett, Maja Bekan, Remy Jungerman, Melanie Bonajo, Paulien Oltheten, Jennifer Tee and Guido van der Werve.

For whom

Visual artists can apply for a residency at the ISCP. Artist duos or collaborating partners must each submit separate applications.

A duo is understood to be two artists who consistently produce their work together as a single unit. A collaborative partnership that works together temporarily or more permanently will be considered as a duo, as long as they are applying for a single residency period with a plan that has a single result. During the residency, duos live and work together.

Working period

A single residency period is available:

  • 1 February 2024 – 1 February 2025

The working period dates are conditional and subject to change, for example, depending on circumstances generated by COVID-19.

How much

The costs of renting the studio and living space are paid directly to the ISCP by the Mondriaan Fund. The remaining costs of travel, living expenses and materials for this working period is assessed at €34,893. This amount is for one person. Residents are expected to contribute 10%, this contribution is settled by the Mondriaan Fund..

If a duo or a collaborative partnership is selected for the residency, these amounts increase proportionally to cover travel and living costs for the second resident.

The contribution to artists based in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom can be increased to meet any higher travel costs. This is looked at per situation.


The deadline for submitting an application for this residency is 13 March 2023, before 17:00 PM (CET) / 12:00 PM (AST)

A grant for this residency can only be applied for during the annual Mondriaan Fund selection round, announced on the Mondriaan Fund website. Read the explanations of the terms and conditions, assessment and application procedure before submitting your application. Also read the general terms and conditions that apply to all Mondriaan Fund grants.

General terms and conditions


The Mondriaan Fund advisory committee will select the ISCP residency candidate based on the documents submitted with the applications.

Other grants for residencies in the Netherlands and other countries
Because only 1 or 2 residents can be selected for any given residency at each selection round, many applicants will be disappointed. For this reason, we point out the possibility of applying for an Artist Project with a residency at a different location. That residency location may not be one of those already being offered by the Mondriaan Fund in the application round.
