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.
Holly Harrison serves as Curatorial Assistant in the Contemporary Art Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She is currently at work on several projects at LACMA, including retrospective exhibitions for Noah Purifoy and Pierre Huyghe, and the exhibition, Futbol: The Beautiful Game. She is also organizing an installation on the LACMA campus by the artist Christine Corday, scheduled to open in fall 2014. Harrison has previously assisted on such exhibitions as Asco: Elite of the Obscure, a solo exhibition on Blinky Palermo, and Christian Marclay’s The Clock. Harrison is a member of an internal LACMA task force mandated to develop new strategies for curating and conserving media art. She has a particular interest in the role of conservation within contemporary art institutions, in both its practical and theoretical dimensions. She recently co-organized the panel, “Uneasy Guardians: Ensuring the Future of Intractable Art Forms,” at the 2013 College Art Association annual conference in New York. The panel discussion examined the divergent priorities of the stakeholders responsible for the preservation, presentation, and historicization of art forms such as film and new media, installation art, and performance.
