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.
Carson Fisk-Vittori (b. Austin, TX) holds a BFA in Interdisciplinary Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Fisk-Vittori currently lives and works in New York. Her constructed environments integrate images, artifacts and flora to analyze the complex interactions between humans and the dynamic landscape. Fisk-Vittori reveals the devices through which we experience and manipulate our environment, and analyzes our attempts to commodify the natural world. Her recent solo exhibition “Disturbance Ecology”, at Mon Cheri, Brussels, displayed an ecosystem of hypothetical weather machines, landscaping scenarios, and animal repellants. Fisk-Vittori has been included in exhibitions at The Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; Del Vaz Projects, Los Angeles; Galerie Valentin, Paris; Composing Rooms, Berlin; Rod Barton, London; Bodega, Philadelphia; Future Gallery, Berlin; NO Space, Mexico City, and Roots & Culture, Chicago. She has had solo exhibitions at Mon Cheri, Brussels; Important Projects, Oakland, and Carrie Secrist Gallery, Chicago. She is also part of the collective “Contemporary Floral Arrangement”.
