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.
Carolina Chacón (b. 1985, Colombia) has a Masters in Visual Arts from the Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas, ASAB. Her projects have focused on artistic practices related to urban spaces and/or specific social groups, and the review of artistic discourse that borders the realm of politics. She currently works as Assistant Curator at the Museo de Antioquia. Chacón recently curated Máquinas de vida (2013), an exhibition of the museum’s collection from a gender perspective; and Cuando el río suena… from the collective Puente Lab (2012). Currently, Chacón is the project advisor for Museo + comunidad, and she is preparing Contra-expendiciones (2014), an investigation on the relationship between art and territory.
