Independent Curators International (ICI) supports the work of curators to help create stronger art communities through experimentation, collaboration, and international engagement. Curators are arts community leaders and organizers who champion artistic practice; build essential infrastructures and institutions; and generate public engagement with art. Our collaborative programs connect curators across generations, and across social, political and cultural borders. They form an international framework for sharing knowledge and resources — promoting cultural exchange, access to art, and public awareness for the curator’s role.
The Curator’s Network is ICI’s professional membership program. As an online community of curators from around the world, it facilitates international exchange and dialogue. The Network has over 600 members from more than 55 countries, all professionals in the field, including recent alumni of the Curatorial Intensive. Members share a desire to build and enrich their interests and research through international connections.
The Curator’s Network provides access to professional resources. Through the Network curators can access to information on residencies, current job and fellowship opportunities, calls for exhibitions and conference papers, as well as articles on curating and source material for research.
Members have access to an online reading room that houses rare and relevant texts on contemporary curating; publications available only to members of the Curator’s Network, which include texts authored by Terry Smith, Lucas Ospina, Jorge Ribalta, and Michael Warner.
Subscription to the Curator’s Network is $100.00 USD per year.
