ICI Curatorial Hub

Speakers will engage with the idea of “the agency” through various projects, debating the possibility of art as a vehicle for social change, and the shift in the roles of both artist and curator on the border between art and activism. Participants include Maayan Sheleff, Curator, CCA Tel Aviv, recipient of ISCP’s 2012 Curator Award, and Chelsea Haines, Public Programs Manager, ICI, amongst others.
