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.

On May 23 join ICI for a workshop with Autumn Knight and Amy L. Powell in celebration of their recent publication Autumn Knight: In Rehearsal. As artists are increasingly reflecting on modes of institutional knowledge production to make their work, the role of the curator is shifting. We’ll be thinking through how these changes are shaping artist-curator dynamics.read more »
