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.
Keeli Shaw has a B.A. in Art History and Political Science from UC Berkeley and until last year, worked as a Production Coordinator in the Collections Information & Access Department at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Having relocated to New York to attend the Visual Arts Administration program at NYU, she experienced her first East Coast winter and found the arts scene to be a welcome escape from the elements. Currently, she is a Project Manager with Local Projects, a New York based media design firm for museums and public spaces.
