ICI has works closely with curators from 70 countries and all 50 states, representing a multiplicity of voices and championing artistic practice to innovate and challenge dominant versions of art history. At ICI, we believe that curators create more than exhibitions. They are arts community leaders and organizers who are committed to the difficult work of cultural rebuilding ahead. They are the connectors between art and the public, who help us see a world with different realities.
Never in recent history has the work of curators been more needed, to take on cultural rebuilding, and to create a more inclusive and generative art world. In a year when physically gathering for our Annual Fall Benefit is not possible, we invite you to support ICI’s Benefit in a Box.
Available in limited quantities, each box will feature the elements of an ICI Benefit—artist designed multiples, one-of-a-kind experiences, and exclusive entertainment all announced at the end of July—to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home in October. Together these boxes support ICI’s mission to create stronger art communities, and individually, they represent the essential building blocks that help us get there:
EMPOWERING NEW VOICES, ONE SCHOLARSHIP AT A TIME
Your support helps foster a new, dynamic and diverse generation of curators by making possible the Curatorial Intensive, new and expanded Curatorial Fellowships, and Curatorial Mentorship programs.
CHAMPIONING GLOBAL SOLIDARITY, ONE EXHIBITION AT A TIME
Your support strengthens ICI’s international network of curators, artists, and art space in 70 countries, through its traveling exhibitions and collaborative programs, making the organization uniquely positioned to seek a global understanding of our times.
ADVANCING CIVIC-MINDED PRACTICE, ONE SEMINAR AT A TIME
Your support helps create stronger art communities with the Curatorial Forum, a platform for U.S.-based curators to share ideas and generate conversations about the civic responsibility of the museum, public engagement, accessibility, race and representation.
