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.
Watch this video for an in-depth conversation with Candice Hopkins and Dylan Robinson, moderated by KWAG Senior Curator Crystal Mowry, to learn more about Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts and how the decolonial framework of the exhibition unfolds through the form of scores.

An experimental essay and collaboration with the artist Nika von Ham, published as the last chapter of Zdenka Badovinac’s Comradeship: Curating, Art, and Politics in Post-Socialist Europe, “My Post-Catastrophic Glossary” is written as a semi-fictional glossary.
Watch Zdenka Badovinac revisit this essay in conversation with writers and art historians Carlos Kong and Yin Ho, who were core participants of the Comradeship Reading Group, a year-long program to discuss and looking closely at Badovinac’s publication, Comradeship. The three talk about the genesis and format of the glossary, how the concepts of catastrophe influenced Badovinac’s work as a museum director, the future of museums, and importantly, how to become true comrades. Originally screened on Monday, June 29, 2020.
