Independent Curators International (ICI) supports the work of curators to help create stronger art communities through experimentation, collaboration, and international engagement. Curators are arts community leaders and organizers who champion artistic practice; build essential infrastructures and institutions; and generate public engagement with art. Our collaborative programs connect curators across generations, and across social, political and cultural borders. They form an international framework for sharing knowledge and resources — promoting cultural exchange, access to art, and public awareness for the curator’s role.
Alejandro Alonso Díaz
Alejandro Alonso Díaz is a writer, curator and researcher with a background in art history and philosophy. His practice is concerned with epistemologies around notions of environmentalism, materiality, the post-human condition and interspecies communality, often grounded in an enquiry into other forms of existence, and rehearsing radical ways of otherness.
In 2016 he founded fluent, a para–institution for artistic research presenting cycles of consecutive exhibition modules, texts and live events, structured through long-term axes and presenting the work of artists such as Tamara Henderson, Mariana Silva, Paul Maheke, Louisa Martin, Tim Ivison & Julia Tcharfas and Laida Lertxundi, among others. Alejandro has also curated and participated in projects for The Whitechapel Gallery, London; Chisenhale; 18thSt Arts Centre, Los Ángeles; INLAND; P/////AKT, Amsterdam and the Athens Performance Biennale, among many others. He contributes regularly to international art publications such as frieze, Mousse, Terremoto and Contemporãnea. In 2014 and 2015, Alejandro was a curatorial fellowship from Fundación Botín.
