Curators’ Top Picks Under 35

Suzanne Cotter, Raimundas Malašauskas, and João Ribas

This is a unique opportunity to gain insight from three of the most progressive curators working today: Suzanne Cotter (Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation Curator, Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Project), Raimundas Malašauskas (Independent curator and writer, and a member of the curatorial team of dOCUMENTA (13), 2012), and João Ribas (Curator, MIT List Visual Arts Center). Join ICI for a presentation in which each curator will discuss five artists under 35 years old that they believe could become the most influential practitioners of their generation. 

ICI CONVERSATIONS is a new series of thought-provoking events that give you exclusive access to the people—artists, critics, collectors, advisors, gallerists, curators, and museum directors—who are influencing the contemporary art world today.
