Independent Curators International (ICI) announces a new exhibition at TEMP

Independent Curators International (ICI) announces a new exhibition at TEMP introducing the activities of four innovative art spaces from around the world for the first time in New York. On view December 1, 2012–January 27, 2013.

Transferring local dialogues into an international context, Matadero Madrid; Contemporary Art Centre (CAC), Vilnius; Videotage, Hong Kong; and Raw Material Company (RMC), Dakar will each stage a selection of projects and archives that introduce artists’ practices and curatorial exchanges from their regions. The exhibition is an extension of ICI’s Curatorial Hub, giving New York audiences access for the first time to some of the newest collaborators in ICI’s international network of curators and institutions.

Projects on view will include:
• Matadero Madrid‘s Archimobile, a traveling archive of over 100 artists connected to Madrid, which ICI Curatorial Intensive alumna, Andrea Hill will activate by conceiving the New York presentation and commissioning a new work—www.mataderomadrid.org;

• A presentation from CAC of artworks chronicling exhibitions that have happened in and around Vilnius within the past year. On view collectively for the first time, the videos, sculpture, and photographs, many of which were commissioned by CAC, were selected by CAC curator and former ICI Curatorial Fellow Virginija Januškevičiūtė and independent curator Inesa Pavlovskaite, co-founder of The Gardens in Vilnius—www.cac.lt/en;

• Videotage‘s Hong Kong interventions to the ICI/Creative Time project Living as Form (The Nomadic Version), alongside a compilation of works from the Videotage Media Art Collection (VMAC), curated by independent curator/producer Helen Homan Wu—www.videotage.ork.hk;

• A representation of Raw Material Company‘s resource center for Africa-related art practices, selected by RMC’s founder and artistic director Koyo Kouoh, who will also come to New York in January for ICI’s Curator’s Perspective talk series in conjunction with the exhibition—www.rawmaterialcompany.org.

In addition, a series of public events will be organized during the exhibition and in collaboration with each of the four participating art spaces to further examine their practices. For more information, visit ICI’s website, www.curatorsintl.org.

ICI Curatorial Hub at TEMP is made possible in part by grants from the Auchincloss Foundation, the Hartfield Foundation, and Spain Culture New York, and by contributions from the supporters of the ICI Access Fund, and ICI’s Board of Trustees.
