Martine Syms

Powder coated steel
2 1/2 x 3 x 3 inches
Edition of 20 + 5 APs
$2,000 + shipping

Martine Syms’ multimedia works offer a critical exploration of the performance, circulation and consumption of blackness and contemporary identity politics in visual culture. Baphomet, named after the English deity, features Syms signature color choice of purple, and employs her practice of appropriating imagery from popular culture and the internet, in this case replicating a faceless devil emoji.

Syms (b. 1988, Los Angeles, CA) is a Los Angeles-based artist. Syms has exhibited widely, including presentations at the Museum of Modern Art, Hammer Museum, ICA London, New Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, the Graham Foundation, and The Studio Museum in Harlem, among many other acclaimed institutions. More recently, she had her second solo exhibition at Bridget Donahue and participated in the 2019 Whitney Biennial.

Kahlil Robert Irving

Music Memorial in Film [(Greeting Screening Chained ) Daily Ritual & tribute

(TERROR)], 2019
Personally constructed decal on industrial ceramic tile
14 1/4 x 9 7/8 inches
Edition of 20 + 3 APs
$2,500 + shipping

Kahlil Robert Irving’s ceramic sculptures critically engage with the history of the medium and challenge constructs around identity and culture in western civilization. This examination of the digital media, memory, and race in Irving’s practice is embedded in each ceramic tile.

Irving (b. 1992, San Diego, CA) lives and works between St. Louis, Missouri and New York. Recent exhibitions include the critically acclaimed show titled Black ICE at Callicoon Fine Arts, New York, and the upcoming 2019 Singapore Biennale. Irving’s work can be found in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Carnegie Museum of Art, and Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art among many others.

100% Acrylic
7 1/2 x 79 1/2 inches
Unique set of 193 scarfs created exclusively for ICI
$150 + $5 domestic shipping

MUSEUMS LEAGUE is a project designed by Maurizio Cattelan for museums around the world. It consists of a custom scarf inspired by football team scarves. This extra-long, fringed acrylic scarf is woven with the words “INDEPENDENT CURATORS” and includes the year of ICI’s founding, 1975.

Controversial and wildly popular, Maurizio Cattelan’s work lampoons icons and societal conventions, as serious in their implicit critiques as in their humorous irreverence. Cattelan has seen his works exhibited at the Venice Biennale and the Whitney Biennial as well as at numerous institutions, including Centre Georges Pompidou, the Tate Gallery, and the Museum of Modern Art.

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.
