Independent Curators International (ICI) produces exhibitions, events, training opportunities, research initiatives, and publications for curators and audiences around the world. Established in 1975, ICI is headquartered in New York, but active around the world. ICI’s programs are presented and often developed in partnership with art institutions across the globe, therefore encouraging new infrastructures for art practice internationally, and 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 »
