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.
Barbara Adams studies the creative practices of artists, curators, and social scientists with a particular interest in the ways in which creative practitioners grapple with and diagnose contemporary unease through their work. Her work also considers what social scientists might learn from artists in terms of methodology. Barbara studied social sciences at the University of Amsterdam and is now working on her dissertation at the New School for Social Research. She teaches urban studies and social theory courses at the New School and Parsons.
Conceived as a transdisciplinary discussion, this event is considered as an extension of the dialogue that started in the book by Laura F. Gibellini Construyendo un Lugar / Constructing a Place. Please join us following the event for a closing reception of ICI Curatorial Hub at TEMP.read more »
