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.
Who is to say what is normal and what is disorder, especially when it comes to the human mind? The contemporary artists whose works are presented in Slightly Unbalanced venture into this slippery and suggestive territory, exposing psychological afflictions, mental quirks, and odd character traits. Viewers’ responses will range from discomfort to empathy, even laughter, as many facets of the human condition come into sharp focus.
