The Curatorial Intensive is targeted toward self-motivated individuals—working independently or in institutions—who would benefit from a week of intensive conversations around the issues and questions that regularly arise for curators. These range from the pragmatics of developing an exhibition and building working relationships with artists to the theoretical aspects of understanding how to turn a concept into a project and effectively communicate ideas.
Focusing on new models for curating and exhibition development, ICI’s annual summer Curatorial Intensive offers curators the opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world and share ideas on how to push the parameters of their practice.
Seminars, site visits, individual meetings, and roundtable discussions will be led by the following faculty: Bruce Altshuler (Director, Program in Museum Studies, New York University), Holly Block (Executive Director, Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York), Nicholas Cullinan (Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art), Reem Fadda (Associate Curator of Middle Eastern Art, Abu Dhabi Project, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York), Kate Fowle (Chief Curator, Garage, Moscow, and Director-at-Large, ICI), Dóra Hegyi (Project Leader, tranzit.hu, Budapest), Todd Levin (art advisor), Agustín Pérez Rubio (independent curator and art critic), and Jenny Schlenzka (Associate Curator, MoMA PS1, New York), among others.
