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.

She has toured exhibitions across North America to museums, including the Museum of Contemporary Art - Denver, The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, The Power Plant Art Gallery (Toronto, ON), and Yale Union (Portland, OR). Her scholarship traces the legacy of the interdisciplinary avant-garde in contemporary art practice; she has taught at NYU and Barnard College. Her first book, Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art, an edited volume of collected essays on the subject of conceptual writing, is forthcoming from the University of Toronto Press (Co-imprinted by MCA-Denver).
