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.
Diana Campbell is the Director and Chief Curator of the Creative India Foundation, a private foundation founded in 2010, which is building India’s first international sculpture park in Hyderabad. Prior to moving to India, Campbell worked at the Princeton University Art Museum, Sotheby’s, the Neue Galerie in New York, and curated independently. Her latest exhibition in New York was Natural Renditions, co-curated with Eric Gleason at Marlborough Gallery, which included artists such as Ahmed Alsoudani, Aleksandra Mir, Phoebe Washburn, and Kamrooz Aram. In India, Campbell recently curated public art projects for the India Art Fair and she is currently curating art projects with Indian artists for SH Contemporary in Shanghai. As part of her work with the Creative India Foundation, Campbell works with international sculpture parks and institutions to enable works and collaborations with Indian artists, and also funds Indian artists to participate in international residency programs.
