iso inaugurates its 2000 square meters workspace located in Amsterdam
iso is an applied situation for artists, designers and craftsmen
iso is a living organism; as such it is different from one day to the next
WE believe in the potential of bringing together a wide variety of disciplines in a mainly open communal warehouse. On top of offering a stimulating production environment with thirty individual and shared ateliers, a residence and a large workshop, Iso runs a public program with exhibitions, lectures, workshops and events, giving a stage for both internal and external artists, local and international.
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 accommodation, 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 are in line with experimental spirit. To this aim, the residence engages promising artists who are focusing on installation and sculpture (incorporating audiovisual, digital and performance).
Find here a refreshing path to look at art and design, with in the background: work in the making!

A REALLY FAKE FUTURE
Jason Page & Karen Huang
Exhibition Opening: September 19, 19:00
Especially for Unseen Amsterdam, iso presents A Really Fake Future, a collaborative project by textile-based designers Karen Huang (TW) and Jason Page (US), inspired by the tapestries of Dutch artist Elma Beks (1926-2014). The project envisions a future where traditional textile handicrafts such as quilting, embroidery and design are replaced by automated production and digital representation as a result of artificial intelligence. Translating 3D materials to 2D images, the designers question what textile craftsmanship may look like in the future. The exhibition A Really Fake Future is curated by Florence Parot, co-founder of iso, and will feature material research in digital image making and textiles.
