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.
Beth Malone is the founding director of Dashboard Co-op, a curatorial venture that activates raw space with immersive art. Since 2010, Malone has curated ten exhibitions in vacant properties around Atlanta, the majority of which leased following the shows. Dash has received press for its revitalization efforts and curatorial vision by WABE (Atlanta’s NPR affiliate), Business Insider, HGTV, ArtsATL, and the Atlanta Regional Commission. In addition to her work with Dashboard Co-op, Beth curates exhibitions in traditional galleries, most recently 100,000 Cubicle Hours at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (2012). In 2011, Beth became the Coordinator of Teen Programs at the High Museum of Art where she continues to connect thousands of teenagers every year through art and culture. She holds a Masters of Letters from the University of Glasgow and sits on review committees for the Forward Arts Foundation, WonderRoot, and Mint Gallery. Her animated films have screened in New York and Atlanta, and she was recently awarded a grant by the City of Atlanta to produce four large-scale works of art for Elevate, Atlanta’s annual public art event.
