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.
In collaboration with the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), listen to a discussion with curators Herb Tam and Ryan Wong (Curatorial Intensive Alumni Tokyo ‘13), on their upcoming exhibition on the 1990s Asian-American art collective Godzilla, opening at MOCA in Fall 2020. Godzilla members Byron Kim and Tomie Arai joined Tam and Wong in their discussion to offer insight into the history and legacy of Godzilla and artist organizations in Chinatown.
