Celebrating 40 Years of ICI

Since 1975, Independent Curators International (ICI) has produced exhibitions, publications, training programs and research initiatives for curators – as well as hundreds of free events for everyone – in 400 cities and 55 countries.

ICI has supported over 1,000 curators, 2,600 artists, and worked with 550 art spaces; and there are 360 Curatorial Intensive alumni based in 64 countries who represent the future of the curatorial field. Our network keeps growing—one collaboration at a time.

As ICI enters its 40th year, we are highlighting many of the important collaborators, exhibitions, publications, and public programs that have defined our mission. We celebrate ICI’s past with a keen eye on the future, and continue our pioneering work in the curatorial field.

Independent Curators International (ICI)

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.
