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.
Freya Powell is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice incorporates video, photography, bookmaking, and printmaking. She is interested in the imaginative space, making truth felt rather than just telling it. Working with a minimalist aesthetic and the use of abstraction, her work moves beyond documentary status by slowing perception and engaging common experiences.
