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.
Stefan Benchoam is an artist and co-founder of Proyectos Ultravioleta - a contemporary art space based in Guatemala City, focused on experimentation and education - and co-founder of the Buró de Intervenciones Públicas (BIP). His work is multifaceted, with at least two distinct lines of investigation: one that is developed in the public realm through actions and interventions, and another one that aims to question the notion of authenticity while blurring the lines between the work of the artist and that of the curator.
