ICI’s international presence has recently been made stronger by the transformative role of the Leadership Council. Established in 2013, this visionary group develops new initiatives that elevate ICI to the next level. The members of the Leadership Council share a passion for international perspectives on contemporary art, and recognize the need for strong regional networks of curators and art spaces within ICI’s global scope. In this way, the Council works closely together with ICI to nurture the curatorial network from the inside out, and establishes the crucial foundations for the future of international exchange.
The Council strengthens ICI and helps shaping the organization’s programs in unique ways that are tailored to each member’s vision of contemporary art. In the past year alone, ICI has expanded curatorial exchange, training and research opportunities in regions such as Latin America and Africa, through the creation of two Leadership Funds; engaged with the largest audience in the organization’s history through the redesign of ICI’s online platform; re-formulated key fundraising efforts that are critical to the organization and elevated the ICI Annual Benefit & Auction to new heights. Members of the Leadership Council were involved in nearly all of the many facets of the organization, supporting the broad reach of ICI’s exhibitions and publications, as well as pioneering programs in education and curatorial research, and developing new fundraising opportunities to better support curators, artists and art spaces around the world that are shaping contemporary art today.
