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.
Irish Art Now: From the Poetic to the Political

The artwork displayed in this book represent the changing Irish identity as past tradition and culture come to a head with overwhelming global influence. The media covered include video, photography and installations as well as orthodox painting and sculpture.
