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.
Imara Limon (b. 1988) is curator at the Amsterdam Museum, where she curated the exhibition Black Amsterdam (2016) about black role models in the Netherlands. Limon has a background in Contemporary Art, Museology and Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam. She curated the exhibition Black & Revolutionary, an initiative by The Black Archives, and is leading the museum program New Narratives that reconsiders the narratives told by the institution and finds alternative stories around the collections. Limon was part of the New World Summit team, founded by artist Jonas Staal, and the manager of Frontier Imaginaries, founded by curator Vivian Ziherl, with international exhibitions and publications. She co-curated ‘Nieuw Amsterdams Peil’ (2017), a collaborative project with curator Alessandro Vincentelli (BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art) and six Amsterdam galleries. Limon is board member of Kunsten ’92, advisor at the Mondriaan Fund and the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK), and winner of the National Museum Talent Prize 2017. Photo: Renata Chede.
