Independent Curators International (ICI) produces exhibitions, events, publications, research and training opportunities for curators and diverse audiences around the world. Established in 1975 and headquartered in New York, ICI is a hub that connects emerging and established curators, artists, and art spaces, forging international networks and generating new forms of collaborations. ICI provides access to the people and practices that are key to current developments in the field, inspiring fresh ways of seeing and contextualizing contemporary art.
Barbara Adams studies the creative practices of artists, curators, and social scientists with a particular interest in the ways in which creative practitioners grapple with and diagnose contemporary unease through their work. Her work also considers what social scientists might learn from artists in terms of methodology. Barbara studied social sciences at the University of Amsterdam and is now working on her dissertation at the New School for Social Research. She teaches urban studies and social theory courses at the New School and Parsons.
Conceived as a transdisciplinary discussion, this event is considered as an extension of the dialogue that started in the book by Laura F. Gibellini Construyendo un Lugar / Constructing a Place. Please join us following the event for a closing reception of ICI Curatorial Hub at TEMP.read more »
