Call for applications – Fall 2015 Curatorial Intensive in New York, ICI

This September, Independent Curators International (ICI) produces the Curatorial Intensive in New York, a ten-day professional development program that offers curators the opportunity to discuss, among colleagues, the concepts, logistics, and challenges of organizing exhibitions, public programs, and other curatorial models.

The Curatorial Intensive is designed to immerse participants in a rigorous schedule of seminars, conversations, and presentations that support the process of developing an idea for an exhibition or program into a full proposal. The program is targeted toward self-motivated individuals—working independently or in institutions—who would benefit from a weeklong itinerary of discussions around the issues that arise for curators. Topics range from the pragmatics of exhibition-making and building working relationships with artists to the theoretical aspects of expanding upon research-based practices and understanding how to communicate ideas effectively.

Seminars, site visits, individual meetings, and roundtable discussions will be led by a group of professionals that includes: Johanna Burton (Keith Haring Director and Curator of Education and Public Engagement, New Museum, New York), María del Carmen Carrión (Director of Public Programs & Research, ICI, New York), Pablo Helguera (artist, New York), Renaud Proch (Executive Director, ICI, New York), Laura Raicovich (Director, Queens Museum, New York), and Ingrid Schaffner (Curator, Carnegie International 2018, Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh), among others.

Application deadline: July 24, 2015
