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.
Virginija Januskeviciute is curator at the Contemporary Art Centre (CAC) in Vilnius, Lithuania, where she has organized numerous projects such as The Joy is Not Mentioned, 2007, (part of an ongoing ‘young Lithuanian artists’ series, featuring Egle Budvytyte, Goda Budvytyte and Ieva Miseviciute); and For the First and the Second Time, 2008 (an exhibition of artists investigating the history of Modernism, in collaboration with Stroom, a center for visual arts and architecture based in The Hague). Most recently, Virginija is programming the Reading Room, CAC’s venue for talks, discussions, lectures, performances and presentations as well curatorial and artistic experimentation.
Following the widespread popularity and success of PROJECT 35, ICI is collaborating with 35 more international curators to produce PROJECT 35 VOLUME 2. This program of single-channel videos is selected by 35 international curators who each chose one work from an artist they think is important for audiences around the world to experience today.read more »
