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.
Lize Mogel is an interdisciplinary artist, who, for the past decade, has worked with the interstices between art and cultural geography. She has created and disseminated counter-cartography— maps and mappings that produce new understandings of social and political issues. Her work connects the real history and collective imaginary about specific places to larger narratives of global economies. She has mapped public parks in Los Angeles, future territorial disputes in the Arctic, and wastewater economies in New York City. Mogel is co-editor of the book/map collection “An Atlas of Radical Cartography” and co-curator of its related traveling exhibition. This project significantly influenced the conversation and production around mapping and activism. Exhibitions include the Sharjah (U.A.E.), Gwangju (South Korea), and Pittsburgh Biennials, Greater New York at MoMA PS1, and Experimental Geography (touring). Photo credit: Kim Llerena.
