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

This summer, 10-14 curators from around the world will be selected from an open 
competition to participate in the next Curatorial Intensive for a rigorous 8-day 
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 Hernandez 
Chong Cuy, Curator of Contemporary Art, Coleccion Patricia Phelps de Cisneros; 
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 working 
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 Fowle, 
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, Fowle 
spent 6 years in San Francisco at the California College of the Arts, where she 
was the director of the MA Program in Curatorial Practice, which she 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.
