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.

The Backroom is a digital space where to discover and navigate art from a perspective that, beyond the artistic object or artifact, reveals how it is a continuous and relational exercise. Every two weeks from September 2020 to January 2021, guest curators will be presenting what nourishes and inform the practices of three artists of their choice: objects of desire, personal archives, libraries, artistic research, music, routines, films, biographies; art is in a permanent exchange with the world that surrounds it.read more »
