New York Curatorial Seminar 2024

New York, NY, USA

PROGRAM DATES: JUNE-SEPTEMBER 2024

ICI's Curatorial Seminar is a free professional development program that supports emerging curators to advance their practice. It centers a first-person approach to curating, and focuses on strengthening curatorial practices that support overlooked artists and engage with local art communities while working outside of a large institution. This unique program offers opportunities to gain knowledge and resources through ICI’s network, share ideas, and think through developments in one's own curatorial practice. Through this process, the Seminar seeks to build an affirming network of peers who connect around common values, and support the sharing of knowledge among early-career curators.

In the 2024 New York Curatorial Seminar, six New York-based curators will meet monthly from June to September 2024 for discussion-based seminars and site visits across New York, led by ICI staff, guest curators, artists, and arts professionals. Over the course of the Seminar, each participant will also workshop a proposal for a project and receive individual advisement from selected mentors, who provide a unique perspective on the participant's curatorial practice. 

Participants have been selected from nominations by ICI Collaborators. Participants are curators currently based in the New York City area, with up to five years of experience working with artists.

Seminar sessions will take place virtually and in person at various locations around New York City.

Please reach out to Zoe Dobuler, ICI's Programs Coordinator, at zoe@curatorsintl.org with any questions or concerns.
