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.

She has curated exhibitions of new work by Huma Bhabha, Jeremy Olson, Max Razdow, and Jesse Bransford. She is currently a director at Callicoon Fine Arts in Manhattan.
