While the 1990s saw a boom in the creation of biennials across the world that opened up potential for dialogues between divergent practitioners, the last decade has seen the evolution of new models for institutions that enable the development of new networks and collaborations between artists, curators, and organizations regionally and internationally. These have established platforms from which to generate programming and accumulate research that goes beyond national or localized mandates, and encourages the accumulation of knowledge and projects through shared concerns based on experience and practice. Kate Fowle, Executive Director of Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, will examine these developments, discussing new programs and exhibitions developed by ICI in the past year as case studies for thinking about extending international platforms and networks through exhibitions and discursive programs. Presenting new flexible and modular exhibitions, such as FAX, Project 35, and the Exhibitions in a Box series, as well as ICI's new program of talks, training programs, research projects, and online platforms, Fowle will explore the means by which the institution is responding to and thinking about new models for international engagement and networking today. This talk series is part of a research trip by Kate Fowle to Central and Eastern Europe, made possible through the support of the Trust for Mutual Understanding (TMU). Kate Fowle's talk will mark the last day of the presentation of 'Harald Szeemann: Documenta 5' at the CAC Reading Room.
