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.
Holeng is a photographer and independent curator, currently based in Vienna and originally from Singapore. Her recently curated exhibition An Urban Analogue was held during the Annual International Visual Sociology Association Conference 2013 in London. She holds an MA in Photography and Urban Cultures from Goldsmiths, University of London. Her forthcoming projects include Lyrical Memoirs: The Old ‘Dutch’ House (c.1928) and Southeast Asia in Transition Symposium (2014) at the University of Oxford. Her curatorial work has opened doors to her nefariously open-minded exploration of ideology, theory and philosophy. She is a co-founder and curator with the international curatorial collective 7x8.
