INDEPENDENT CURATORS INTERNATIONAL events

2013 ICI CONVERSATIONS


ICI CONVERSATIONS is a series of thought-provoking events that give you exclusive access to the people—artists, critics, collectors, advisors, gallerists, curators, and museum directors—who are influencing the contemporary art world today. Our second season will debut in March 2013, hosted by Sotheby’s and take place in top venues throughout New York City.

ICI CONVERSATIONS brings you insider perspectives on hot topics from how a world-class collection is built, to the secrets behind making the Frieze New York art fair the talk of town. Keeping participants ahead of the curve, ICI CONVERSATIONS will also give you insights from leading curators on their “top pick” artists under 35, and will include a day exploring Brooklyn’s rapidly developing art center, Bushwick, where many of New York’s current and upcoming art stars have studios.

Comments on the 2012 season:

Attending Curators’ Top Picks Under 35 at Sotheby’s was an amazing experience. I heard about a number of exceptional artists I would not have encountered on my own. Thank you for hosting such an insightful event.
—CAROL GOLDBERG, collector

I just wanted to thank ICI for the event with Richard Armstrong at the home of Eileen and Michael Cohen. It was great to meet the hosts and get their insights into their collection, as well as fascinating to hear about the history and future of the Guggenheim. ICI is going great guns.
—MICHAEL WILSON, independent critic and writer
