ICI Collaborators at the 2019 Venice Biennale

Since 1975, ICI has built an unparalleled network of collaborators – curators, artists, and art spaces of all sizes – to support independent practice locally, and encourage the sharing of independent thought across the globe. We acknowledge all those who form ICI’s international network, including the 27 ICI collaborators involved in the 2019 Venice Biennale. 

The Venice Biennale offers a unique perspective on contemporary art from around the globe. We are thrilled to see so many who share ties with ICI involved in the exhibition and national pavilions – reflecting on ICI as a meaningful force for cultural exchange internationally.
