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.
Szu-Han Ho’s work in sculpture, performance, installation, and text addresses the practice of exchange through diverse forms of collaboration. Recent projects include BORDER TO BAGHDAD, an exchange between artists from the US-Mexico border and Baghdad, Iraq; The Mirror Duet, a series of performances based on W.A.Mozart’s Der Spiegelkanons; and Shelter in Place, a sculptural installation and performance originating from trauma and personal histories. Szu-Han lives and works in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
