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 Thompson currently lives in New York where she is an independent curator and project manager. Most recently she co-curated an exhibition, 196 Guernsey, in a house in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, focusing on concepts and relationships associated with the home by such artists as Sami Ben Larbi, Langdon Graves, and Robin Cameron, and exploring the significance and interaction with an alternative exhibition space and its relevance to the artists’ conceptual interests. She has worked on a Special Project for the Moscow Biennale 2009 and contributed text published in the catalogue for The Situation. She earned a BA in Anthropology and in 2008 earned her MA in Art History at Virginia Commonwealth University.
