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 Hill is a New York and Amsterdam-based entrepreneur and creative director who has founded companies that bring the ideas of artists and designers to a broad public. Paloma Powers and CultureTM.com both address how brands can better support culture and best practices for artist-brand collaborations. Clients such as Gucci, Bergdorf Goodman, Airbnb and Absolut Art have sought her expertise in implementing cultural solutions and identifying artists for their campaigns, retail experiences, and marketing initiatives. In 2018, she launched TORTUGA, a direct-to-consumer furniture brand focused on modular pieces created by young designers. She is still motivated by the ideas of artists, but in applications beyond the traditional art world.
