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.
Maaike Lauwaert has been the visual arts curator at Stroom Den Haag, an independent centre for art and architecture in the Netherlands, for over a year. From 2003 on she has been writing about contemporary art for various magazines in the Netherlands and Belgium. She is also the secretary for an interest group for small Dutch art spaces called De Zaak Nu. Before starting at Stroom, she worked at the Mondriaan Foundation (a funding body) and completed a PhD. in cultural sciences at the University of Maastricht.
