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.
Art Mile is a city-wide digital art exhibition that champions Detroit’s vibrant and diverse arts community by promoting public programs and online acquisitions. Organized by Reyes | Finn and Cultural Counsel in partnership with Red Bull Arts, Art Mile launched its inaugural festival in the summer of 2020, providing over 60 Detroit galleries, institutional non-profits, museums, and artist-run spaces with free access to Art Mile’s exhibition platform, with sales made directly through exhibitors on an inquiry basis.
