ici Library

The ICI Library, like the Curatorial Hub in which it resides, is a public resource for studying the evolution of curating, exhibition making, and new ways of supporting artists’ practices. The library functions at the nexus of recent art theory and discourse, art, and curatorial practices — organized through the lens of contemporary issues in curating.

The ICI Library currently houses over 1,600 publications. It comprises a comprehensive and international range of texts on curatorial theory, readers from curatorial symposiums and seminars compiled by ICI, seminal modern and contemporary art-historical surveys, specialist publications on art movements, numerous important exhibition catalogues, and a range of international periodicals. It was developed in response to a distinct need for curators to have access to literature that is rare, out of print, little known, or hard to find. In addition, the ICI Library is the permanent home of Cleopatra’s Library. A Brooklyn-based collaborative and art space, Cleopatra’s initiated its book collection in 2008 by inviting over 300 curators whom they collectively admired to take part in the formation of a reference library.

ACCESS

The books in the ICI Library are non-circulating, but we encourage visitors to schedule an appointment to access this unique resource. You can begin by exploring the ICI Library holdings through our digital database, LibraryThing: http://www.librarything.com/profile/CuratorsINTL


ARCHIVE

In addition to a growing collection of publications, the ICI Library also houses a comprehensive archive of video and audio recordings of ICI events, talks, seminars, and conferences. This archive is available for consultation and research by appointment.
