INDEPENDENT CURATORS INTERNATIONAL
About

ICI

Independent Curators International (ICI) produces exhibitions, events, publications, research and training opportunities for curators and diverse audiences around the world.

Established in 1975, ICI is a unique organization that focuses on the role of the curator as a contextualizing force for contemporary art, and one that develops infrastructure for contemporary artists and art discourse in different contexts throughout the world. ICI connects emerging and established curators, artists, and art spaces, into collaborative networks that are relevant regionally and inscribed within an international framework.

Inspiring fresh ways of seeing and contextualizing contemporary art, ICI provides access to the people and practices that are key to current developments in the field. Over the last 40 years, ICI exhibitions, publications, training programs and research initiatives for curators – as well as hundreds of free events for everyone – have taken place in 400 cities and 55 countries. ICI has supported over 1,000 curators, 2,600 artists, and worked with 550 art spaces. And there are currently over 325 alumni of the Curatorial Intensive, ICI’s professional development program, who are based in 61 countries and represent the future of the curatorial field.

Our network keeps growing, one collaboration at a time. Last year alone, ICI exhibitions were seen in over 37 venues in 16 countries. Emerging curators from 24 countries participated in the Curatorial Intensive, with courses held in Addis Ababa, Mexico City, Moscow, and New York; and more than 60 curators and artists contributed to ICI’s talks, public programs, and research initiatives.
