The Curatorial Intensive - Curating Performance

About the Program

ICI's "Curating Performance" program was organized from November 13-22, 2011 in New York.

ICI's "Curating Performance" program was organized from November 13–22, 2011 in association with the visual art performance organization Performa and used the Performa 11 biennial (November 1–21, 2011) as a platform to explore how curating performance art is being theorized and implemented today, including logistical and conceptual concerns arising from the commissioning, production, interpretation and documentation of performance art. Working with a faculty that includes leading artists, curators, and historians, the selected participants engaged in a rigorous schedule of workshops, discussions, critiques, and advisement sessions to develop individual project proposals. SAHA supported Adnan Yıldız's participation to ICI's "Curating Performance" program. For more information: http://curatorsintl.org/intensive/curatorial_intensive_performance TEACHERS & ADVISORS

About ICI and The Curatorial Intensive

ICI creates worldwide connections between emerging and established curators, artists, and institutions, thus forging international networks.

Headquartered in New York, Independent Curators International (ICI) is a small non-profit organization with a large purview. Over the last 35 years, ICI has produced 118 traveling exhibitions and profiled the work of more than 3,700 artists, working with 621 museums, university art galleries and art centers in 48 states and 29 countries worldwide. ICI produces exhibitions, events, publications, and training opportunities for diverse audiences around the world. A catalyst for independent thinking, ICI connects emerging and established curators, artists, and institutions, in order to forge international networks and generate new forms of collaboration. SAHA Association and ICI initiated a partnership in 2011. SAHA will be supporting the participation of curators who have been accepted to ICI’s training programs for a period of three years. SAHA’s collaboration with this internationally renowned institution of 35 years of experience has also resulted in the initiation of a “SAHA Research Grant” to provide an opportunity for the program’s alumni to continue their research. The Curatorial Intensive is ICI’s short-term program, held twice a year, focusing on the ways in which curating contemporary performance art is being theorized and implemented today. 10-14 applicants are selected to participate in the Curatorial Intensive by the ICI Committee to work with a faculty that includes world-renowned artists, curators, and art historians.
