INDEPENDENT CURATORS INTERNATIONAL
WELCOME

  • The Backroom

    The Backroom is a digital space where to discover and navigate art beyond the artistic object or artifact, from a perspective that art is a continuous and relational exercise. Every two weeks from September 2020 to January 2021, guest curators will be presenting what nourishes and informs the practices of three artists of their choice: objects of desire, personal archives, libraries, artistic research, music, routines, films, biographies; art is in a permanent exchange with the world that surrounds it.
