Curatorial Intensive Symposium. 16 Beaver. November 1, 2010
A training intensive for aspiring curators
Building on its history as a hub for curatorial ideas, ICI is supporting curators to develop exhibition proposals and create new professional networks.
In October 2010 in New York ICI organized the Curatorial Intensive for emerging curators internationally who want to learn about curating in the public realm. From an open competition, 14 individuals have been selected by a jury to study with some of today’s leading practitioners working within the rapidly growing field known as public practice.
Teachers and advisors for this program include Nicholas Baume (Director and Chief Curator, Public Art Fund); Claire Bishop (Associate Professor, Ph.D. Program in Art History, CUNY); Dan Cameron (Founding Director, Prospect New Orleans); Jim Campbell (artist); Kate Fowle (Executive Director, ICI); Mary Jane Jacob (Professor and Executive Director of Exhibitions, SAIC); Richard Marshall (Curator, Lever House); Anne Pasternak (President and Artistic Director, Creative Time); Nato Thompson (Chief Curator, Creative Time); and Anton Vidokle (artist, and co-founder e-flux).
Participating in a rigorous schedule of workshops, discussions, critiques, and individual advisement sessions, as well as visits to local institutions and conversations with artists, participants will be trained to develop their ideas into full proposals. Topics discussed will include logistical issues such as commissioning, producing, and installing projects in public space, as well as concepts ranging from site-specificity to social and political engagement.
After the New York phase of the project is complete, ICI will continue working with participants long-distance to finalize their proposals for publication on ICI’s website, so broad publics, as well as the hundreds of institutions with which ICI works, can view the final proposals.
The Curatorial Intensive is made possible, in part, by grants from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, the Dedalus Foundation, and the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation; by in-kind support from Affirmation Arts; and by generous contributions from Toby Devan Lewis, James Cohan, the ICI Board of Trustees, ICI Benefactors Barbara and John Robinson, and ICI Partners and Patrons. Financial sponsorship for international participants has been provided by the American Foundation for Bulgaria, Artis- Contemporary Israeli Art Fund, Arts Council of Ireland, and the Consulate General of Israel.

Bringing together a group of artists whose works play on the instability of knowledge and truth, Nothing is Revealed is characterised by a mode of uncertainty, secrecy, incongruence and chance, qualities that are in keeping with the haphazard disarray of everyday public life, yet unsettle the idea of art as a reliable vehicle of communication.Find out more »
