Independent Curators International (ICI), in collaboration with the Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans (CAC) and Prospect New Orleans, presents the fifth Curatorial Intensive in New Orleans. This ongoing partnership represents ICI’s long-term commitment to New Orleans and the greater Gulf of Mexico region. The Curatorial Intensive, a weeklong professional development program, is designed to immerse participants in a rigorous schedule of seminars, presentations, site visits, and one-on-one meetings that support the process of developing an idea for a project into a full proposal.

This program is targeted toward self-motivated individuals, working independently or within institutions.
Seminars, site visits, individual meetings, and roundtable discussions will be led by a group of professionals that includes: Andrea Andersson (The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts, Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans), Andrea Barnwell Brownlee (Director, Spelman College Museum of Art, Atlanta), Sanford Biggers (artist), Annalee Davis (Visual Artist, Founding Director of Fresh Milk, Barbados; Co-founder of Tilting Axis and Caribbean Linked), Gia Hamilton (Interim Director, New Orleans African American Museum), Amanda Parmer (Director of Programs, ICI), Katie Pfohl (Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, New Orleans Museum of Art), and Renaud Proch (Executive Director, ICI).
