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.
Paula Naughton is a curator based in New York, and the founder of the multi-media documentary project, The New Atlantis. Through processes of collecting, creating, and curating, The New Atlantis brings into question the role and power of photography as a colonizing tool. The multi-disciplinary approach defies traditional boundaries of an art practice, and aims to give voice to the Chagos community and act as an agent of change. Curating and presentation of exhibitions also expands into Naughton’s role as director of Simon Preston Gallery, New York, since 2011. Other recent curatorial exhibitions include “The Mind Was Dreaming, The World Was Its Dream” at Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin, in 2014.
