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.
Laura F. Gibellini
Laura F. Gibellini is a visual artist and theorist whose work grapples with the notion of place and what it means to inhabit the world. In particular she is concerned with how specific places appear in the interstice between ideal and factual gestures, in the gap between conceptualization and practice. In her work, she pays particular attention to the conditions in which, at a given moment, particular artworks emerge and manifest themselves. This places emphasis in the (thinking) process while the artwork would appear as a result or a residue of such development. She uses a variety of media in particular drawing, collage, photography, and video, and, at times, she produces site-specific installations. Laura is a faculty member of the MFA in Art Practice at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
Conceived as a transdisciplinary discussion, this event is considered as an extension of the dialogue that started in the book by Laura F. Gibellini Construyendo un Lugar / Constructing a Place. Please join us following the event for a closing reception of ICI Curatorial Hub at TEMP.read more »
