On top of offering a stimulating work environment (ateliers and workshop), ISO, through an international exhibition program and an artist residence, gives a stage for both internal and external artists, local and international, to present their work and find their audience in Amsterdam.
Ateliers & workshops
Thirty studios are located in the warehouse. It’s an open social architecture, with many common shared spaces and facilities that create an interaction between our community of sixty users. This open plot is multifunctional and can be seen as an agora.
The modular exhibition space (from 60 to 500 square meters) wishes to be the place where art, design and craft are closely intertwined. The works, which will be shown, are predominantly constructed in situ. Large and smaller exhibitions are held at the location periodically. Our presentations are in motion and unpolished, like the world outside of the museum walls.
The residence program provides on-site workspace, as access to the warehouse and workshop; artists can fully dedicate themselves to art projects. iso expresses special interest in proposals that attempt to introduce a sense of material and craft in line with an experimental spirit. To this aim, the residence engages promising artists who are focusing on installation and sculpture (incorporating audiovisual, digital and performance).
iso is supported by Bureau Broedplaatsen, City of Amsterdam
