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.
Carolina Chacón (b. 1985, Colombia) has a Masters in Visual Arts from the Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas, ASAB. Her projects have focused on artistic practices related to urban spaces and/or specific social groups, and the review of artistic discourse that borders the realm of politics. She currently works as Assistant Curator at the Museo de Antioquia. Chacón recently curated Máquinas de vida (2013), an exhibition of the museum’s collection from a gender perspective; and Cuando el río suena… from the collective Puente Lab (2012). Currently, Chacón is the project advisor for Museo + comunidad, and she is preparing Contra-expendiciones (2014), an investigation on the relationship between art and territory.
