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.
Tyson Campbell is of mixed Māori (Te Rarawa/ Ngāti Maniapoto) and pākeha (white-fella) ancestries. He is a Birrarang-a/ Melbourne based multi-disciplinary curator and artist whose work is engaged with the relationships between the Indigenous and the settler-state imaginaries. Tyson is currently researching non-performativity as a way to naturalise and elevate QTPOC spiritualities.
Tyson has recently exhibited with “Ngāti Kangaru” at IMA (AUS), 2019. “Anti-time” at Seventh Gallery (AUS), 2019. “Why Should We Listen to Animals” with Liquid Architecture, (AUS), 2018 and “The River Remains: Ake Tonu Atu” (NZ), 2018.
