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.

Bisagra is a project by Andrés Pereira Paz, Christian Luza, Eliana Otta, Florencia Portocarrero, Iosu Aramburu, Kenji Quispe, Maria José Murillo and Miguel A. López.
Bisagra functions as a meeting point in the fragmented world of the visual arts in Lima and the region, creating connections among its different manifestations, as well as other areas of research and creation. Heir to previous experiences of some of its members’ collective work (such as La Culpable, La Casa Rosa, and Charla Parásita), Bisagra seeks to function as a space capable of embracing and circulating ideas, projects and experiments that share an interest in flexible exchanges with a critical and humorous spirit.
