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, foraging 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.
The Curator’s Network is ICI’s professional membership program. As an online community of curators from around the world, it facilitates international exchange and dialogue. The Network has over 400 members from more than 55 countries, all professionals in the field, including recent alumni of the Curatorial Intensive.
