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.
Shaina Anand is a filmmaker and artist, and a co-initiator of CAMP, a space “in which ideas and energies gather, and become interests and forms” and Padma, the online video archive. She has been working independently in film/video since 1997. In 2001, she founded ChitraKarKhana, a fully independent unit for experimental media. Her recent works continue to be informed by an interest in information politics, and by a critique of documentary film. Interventionist projects such as WICity TV (2005), Khirkeeyaan (2006), Cold Clinic (2008), and Al Jaar Qabla al Daar (2009) have created new assemblies from within the terrains of operation of contemporary media: television, cable TV, surveillance infrastructures, video archives - towards further possibilities for the image and narrative.
