The Curatorial Intensive is ICI’s new short-course training program that supports curators through the process of developing ideas for exhibitions into full exhibition proposals. Since the workshop phase of the first Curatorial Intensive ended in June 2010, ICI has continued to work with participants long-distance to finalize their proposals, now on view here.
