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.
An art advisor with more than 30 years in the industry, Todd Levin has worked with some of the world’s foremost art collectors as the director of Levin Art Group, both buying and selling blue-chip and emerging work on their behalf. Known for his curatorial eye and tough-minded expertise, Levin has helped build in-depth collections that are successful both financially and in terms of scholarship. A glimpse of his approach could be seen at Sprüth Magers Gallery in London, where he recently organized The Vivisector, an exhibition contextualizing Cindy Sherman’s mannequin and doll-related photographs with works by Morton Bartlett, Georges Bataille, Hans Bellmer, Bruce Nauman, Fredrick Sommer, and Tribal sculpture.
