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.
Beyond Preconceptions: The Sixties Experiment
Beyond Preconceptions: The Sixties Experiment offers incredible new insight into art during that groundbreaking and formative decade. The essays by Lawrence Rinder, Paulo Herkenhoff, Jana Ševčíková and Jiří Ševčík, among others, provide unique, global perspectives on the time, focusing on South America and Eastern Europe in addition to more well-known works that emerged from America and Western Europe.
