Independent Curators International (ICI) supports the work of curators to help create stronger art communities through experimentation, collaboration, and international engagement. Curators are arts community leaders and organizers who champion artistic practice; build essential infrastructures and institutions; and generate public engagement with art. Our collaborative programs connect curators across generations, and across social, political and cultural borders. They form an international framework for sharing knowledge and resources — promoting cultural exchange, access to art, and public awareness for the curator’s role.
Andrea Ancira is an independent writer and researcher based in Mexico City. She is interested in contemporary experimental artistic practices and their role in shaping social identities, discourses and sensibilities. When examining these practices— either in the field of sound or image— she has approached them from their possible implications in the conformation of ideas of utopia, revolution and the commons. The perspective from where she explores these phenomena is informed by multiple theoretical frameworks such as marxism, history of contemporary culture and politics, feminism, decolonial studies, among others. Her work has been published in academic and non-academic platforms. She is an associate curator of Centro de la Imagen for the upcoming exhibition of experimental filmaker Teo Hernández.
