Independent Curators International (ICI) unviels the Curatorial Intensive Curating Now. The ten-day professional development program offers curators the opportunity to discuss the concepts, logistics, and challenges of organizing exhibitions, public programs, and other discursive formats. Topics range from the pragmatics of developing a program and building working relationships with artists to the theoretical aspects of understanding how to turn a concept into a project and effectively communicate ideas.
