The International New York Times recently ran a feature on ICI’s Curatorial Intensive. Read the full story here. Established in 2010, the Intensive is the first program of its kind in the world.

It has taken place in cities from Addis Ababa to Bogota, from New Orleans and New York to Moscow and Manila; giving access to professional development and international engagement opportunities to a broader community of curators.
