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.
Jessica Gallucci is an independent curator based in New York City. She is a May 2014 graduate of New York University’s M.A. program in visual arts administration, prior to which she held editorial positions at The Economist, Intelligent Life, and Vogue. In 2010 she became co-director of A.D. Projects, a curatorial collaborative dedicated to presenting the work of emerging contemporary artists in alternative spaces in New York City. In 2014, their artist collaborators were included in the Whitney Biennial, featured in the Brooklyn Museum’s Artists Ball, and had work accessioned by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American Culture. Gallucci wrote her graduate thesis on contemporary art of the Middle East, and has recently completed an internship with Taymour Grahne Gallery in New York. She holds a B.A. in English from Georgetown University.
