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.
Clare Gormley is the Assistant Manager of Pangolin London Sculpture Gallery. She studied Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland. She has previously held internships with The Golden Thread Gallery (Belfast, Northern Ireland), the Mackintosh Museum (Glasgow, Scotland), and The Glasgow International Festival of Art (Glasgow, Scotland). Notable curatorial projects include Set In a Mould and Served Cold, a collaborative exhibition of work by a selection of Glasgow-based female artists at the Newbury Gallery (Glasgow, Scotland), and Graben and Horst at Schikaneder art space (Vienna, Austria). Gormley also participates in ongoing projects with the Glasgow-based art collective, Fleeto. In 2010 she worked with Fleeto, co-curating the work of 36 young, emerging artists within the basement spaces at Shoreditch Town Hall, London. She is currently planning an exhibition, which will take place in Belfast, Northern Ireland in late 2013.
