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. An online community of curators from around the world, that facilitates international exchange and dialogue. The Network is made up of over 600 curatorial and art world professionals from more than 55 countries, including recent alumni of the Curatorial Intensive.
This platform caters to individuals who share a desire to build and enrich their interests and research through international connections.
The Curator’s Network provides access to opportunities within the curatorial field, residencies, current jobs and fellowships, as well as a reading room with resources on curating and source material for research.
Interested in sharing an opportunity with other professionals in your field? Publicizing your curatorial work, or connecting with others working on similar research? Your membership allows you to share your work and interests with other members in the network.
Members have access to an online reading room that houses rare and relevant texts on contemporary curating. Some of these publications are only available to members of the Curator’s Network, and include authors Zdenka Badovinac, Terry Smith, Lucas Ospina, Jorge Ribalta, and Michael Warner.
