This public symposium concludes Independent Curators International (ICI)’s 2019 Curatorial Intensive in Auckland. This is ICI’s first Curatorial Intensive in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand. This Intensive draws upon the diverse cultural environment from Auckland and the greater te Moana Nui-a-Kiwa Pacific Ocean region. This Intensive anticipates Artspace Aotearoa’s new programme The Drift, which will examine and respond to alternative approaches to artistic education.

The Curatorial Intensive Sessions provide a platform for each of the participants to present the project they have been developing over the course of the program, a weeklong professional development program which brings together emerging curators for the opportunity to exchange ideas, develop their curatorial practice, and learn from their colleagues. These small group presentations reflect the intimacy of the Intensive and provide a platform for each group to briefly discuss their work amongst one another.
This event is free and open to the public.

The Curatorial Intensive in Auckland is made possible in part by grants from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Ford Foundation, the Hartfield Foundation, and by generous contributions from Artspace Aotearoa, The Chartwell Trust, John and Jo Gow, Sue Fisher, ST Paul St Gallery Auckland University of Technology, ICI’s Leadership Council, the ICI Board of Trustees, the ICI Gerrit Lansing Education Fund, and the supporters of ICI’s Access Fund.
