Independent Curators International

Curatorial Intensive

Program Dates: July 10-18, 2011

Application Deadline: March 18, 2011


Recognizing the need to support curatorial talent and provide low-cost
training in the current economic climate, Independent Curators International
(ICI) initiated the Curatorial Intensive?the first major short-course
program for emerging curators in the United States. Last year ICI
organized two
iterations of the Curatorial Intensive, bringing 31 curators from 14
and 13 states to New York to develop ideas for exhibitions and strengthen
curatorial thinking.

This summer, 10-14 curators from around the world will be selected from an
competition to participate in the next Curatorial Intensive for a rigorous
schedule of workshops, discussions, critiques, and presentations, as well as
site visits to local institutions, private collections, and artists' studios.
Teachers and advisors for this program include independent curators Cecilia
Alemani and Regine Basha; Kate Fowle, Executive Director, ICI; Sofia
Chong Cuy, Curator of Contemporary Art, Coleccion Patricia Phelps de
Matthew Higgs, Director and Chief Curator, White Columns; and Christian
Rattemeyer, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings, MoMA.

After the New York phase of the project is complete, ICI will continue
with participants long-distance to finalize their proposals for
publication on
ICI's website, so broad publics, as well as the hundreds of institutions with
which ICI works, can view the final proposals.

About the Curatorial Intensive
The Curatorial Intensive is ICI's short-term, low-cost training program that
offers emerging curators the chance to develop exhibition ideas and make
connections to professionals in the field. It provides the opportunity for
peer-group education, forging new networks between aspiring curators
internationally. The Curatorial Intensive takes place twice annually in New
York, and in other locations in conjunction with institutional partners

The Curatorial Intensive was developed by ICI's Executive Director, Kate
who joined the organization after working as the International Curator at the
Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing. Prior to her time in China,

founded in
2002 with Ralph Rugoff.

The Curatorial Intensive is made possible, in part, by grants from the Robert
Sterling Clark Foundation, the Dedalus Foundation, the Helena Rubinstein
Foundation, and the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation; and by generous
contributions from Toby Devan Lewis, James Cohan, and the supporters of ICI's
Access Fund.
