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.
Sarah Hardie is a curator, artist and writer that explores the politics and relations attached to the human voice. She graduated with an MA in Fine Art from the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art (a joint degree) with Distinction in Painting, and went on to study a Masters in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art. Following this, she co-wrote, directed, curated and performed in a solo site-specific, digital, live, choral show ‘the stars sang last tuesday’ at New Media Scotland, Edinburgh. She was selected to show in the Royal Scottish Academy New Contemporaries 2012 exhibition of the best emerging talent in Scotland, winning the Stuart Prize. She writes for internationally distributed art magazine, Line Magazine, in which she was recently published on Ed Atkins’ work—co-editing the Edinburgh Art Festival Edition, 2011. She is currently writing for Afterall Online on the capitalist crisis and love as represented in David Austen’s END OF LOVE. Sarah also works full-time for the Serpentine Galleries in their fundraising team, covering for the Head of Trusts Foundations and Grants, and frequently gives curatorial tours.
