Valerio Rocco Orlando
The Reverse Grand Tour
March 5–April 28, 2013
The Reverse Grand Tour is a project realized, over the period of a year, by the ISCP alumni Valerio Rocco Orlando, following a series of ad hoc residencies in several foreign academies in Rome. This was a unique experience, conceived specifically to observe, from the inside, an educational and cultural system that is unmatched in the world and, at the same time, to analyze the development and nature of the Grand Tour today, through the relationship between foreign artists and the city. The exhibition consists of a video installation with portraits of the foreign artists who explain, as if in a group conversation, their personal point of view (each in their own mother tongue, with subtitles in Italian), and a series of photographs showing a panorama of the inside of the studios – reversing the traditional concept of a ‘room with a view.'

When the French literary theorist and philosopher Roland Barthes published his influential book, Camera Lucida, in 1980, he was grieving the death of his mother. In search of her likeness, he struggled with the false promise of permanence offered by old photographs. They depicted his mother - and yet, no photo seemed to capture her true spirit, he wrote.
A new exhibition by the Hong Kong-based artist Leung Chi-wo explores Barthes' sentiments as applied to audio recordings of two men who are now deceased, Jonathan Napack (1967-2007) and Hiroaki Muragishi (1983-2006). On display at New York's International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) through March 15, "Jonathan & Muragishi" presents Leung's interviews with the men as read by third-party participants, in conjunction with photographs and sculptures constructed from furniture and other domestic objects.

wanna be a masterpiece
a 48h pop-up exhibition
of unfinished works of art
curated by Ilaria Marotta
Gabriele De Santis
Wanna be a masterpiece is a raid in space and time, appearing and disappearing
like a pop-up device in which uncompleted works turn up in the gallery and then
vanish; the exhibition is the materialization of an idea, a thought, a passage.
An improvisation connected with a specific time and place, an open and
incomplete container which states its condition of unfinished and follows the
flow of time. The work normally observed in the static of the display is here
seen as a device on the move, declaring its transient state or its failure,
opening reflections on the criteria for the interpretation of the work of art,
on its independence, on the condition of incompleteness and the timing of the

Changhoon Lee: Outside and Inside
considering notions and concepts of space we should bear in mind how it is
framed, through language or physically in the world. Moreover, the precise
language we use to describe physical space, through the words “inside” and “outside”
reveal a clear directional separation. These two words immediately draw a
boundary that illustrates a division within the physical world. What is
included or excluded from the interior or exterior of a space determines its
boundaries, both on this page and the view from the window in the room we are
sitting in. The “frame” determines how we perceive the idea of space and place.
Additionally when further examined space and place can be connected to more
complex ideas of ideological spatial boundaries that have become contested
spiritual and political concepts. The international border has become a huge
point of contention and becomes the frame for how we speak about various people
and cultures. Every society creates space and has ways of organizing it within
a city. Neighborhoods are laid-out according to certain methodologies, the
location of important places and landmarks reveal the intricacies of power in
any given geographic location, and certain boundaries affect inhabitant’s mobility,
all of which are connected to society’s construction of space.
can also think of space from a phenomenological point of view; how we carry
with us the notion of the spatial unconscious; how we organize our lives; how
we arrange our home. Our public and private spaces are divided, and designate a
boundary of control through which we allow access—physically and emotionally—at
any given point in time. The domestic space of a house can be described as the
lived experience of space, and its physical layout and structure can affect our
emotional state. Space can also be thought of as an abstract notion of time,
where something is “here” or “there,” positioning it spatially and temporally.
Either of which can be described as conceptual ideas of locations or events, or
when referring to where an object is placed in a room.

For the exhibition Love is the Drug, ISCP alum Rose Eken will show a body of new work focusing on her embroideries. The embroidered works are linked together by a series of glazed ceramic works, which are placed in pairs on shelves and plinths in the front room of the gallery. As the title ‘Love is the Drug’ indicates (a reference to the Roxy Music song of the same name) the show investigates notions of Love; of being in love, and of couples. It is about the obsessive love of the fan, the compulsive affection of the musician toward his/her instrument, the infamous bassist tender feelings for his girlfriend and the teenager’s dream of becoming a rock star. It is about the romance and the myths surrounding the world of rock and roll. The pieces in the show all pair up as couples, duos or twins. Everything is handmade, and imperfections between the duplicates add a different character to each piece thus creating dialogue and intimate stories between the work.

Goldin+Senneby. Looking for Headless, by fictional author K.D. Chapters 1-4, 20
January 25 - March 9, 2013
Opening Reception, Friday January 25, 7 - 9 pm
ISCP alums Alums David Maroto and Joanna Zielińska curated The Book Lovers opening January 25th at EFA Project Space. The exhibition is an attempt to study the phenomenon of artist novels. An investigation of the creative consequences when artists choose the novel as a medium is the core of this long-term project and research. For an increasing number of artists, the novel is becoming a means to generate new art objects in the scope of a multidisciplinary practice. A collection of novels written by artists and a parallel online database are available for public perusal in a Reading Room, together with a selection of artworks that are inextricably linked to some of the novels.
