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.
Sarah Thompson currently lives in New York where she is an independent curator and project manager. Most recently she co-curated an exhibition, 196 Guernsey, in a house in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, focusing on concepts and relationships associated with the home by such artists as Sami Ben Larbi, Langdon Graves, and Robin Cameron, and exploring the significance and interaction with an alternative exhibition space and its relevance to the artists’ conceptual interests. She has worked on a Special Project for the Moscow Biennale 2009 and contributed text published in the catalogue for The Situation. She earned a BA in Anthropology and in 2008 earned her MA in Art History at Virginia Commonwealth University.
