WHO WE ARE

International Curators Forum (ICF) was founded in 2007 to publicly promote the work of cultural practitioners, and to encourage and develop artistic and curatorial practice and discourse about contemporary visual art across all forms. The practices that ICF promotes span painting, sculpture, photography, film, live performance art and curation. ICF does this through commissioning new works, programming and presenting these and other artworks in exhibitions, projects and events. ICF also promotes and supports the professional development and public visibility of cultural practitioners through programmes that include public exhibitions and events, mentoring and masterclasses that aim to equip artists and curators to create and present contemporary visual art of high merit from which a diverse public can benefit. ICF is a registered charity (1189228) and an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. 

The 2016-18 programmes Diaspora Pavilion and Beyond the Frame were nationally and internationally notable for their innovative proposals and approaches to addressing professional development and cultural diversity. The organisation also curates exhibitions and events that address diasporic culture in a global context, examples of which include: Tactical Interventions (Venice, Kassel, Munster, Istanbul in 2007), The Beauty of Distance: Songs of Survival in a Precarious Age (Sydney Biennial in 2010), Caribbean Pavilion (Liverpool Biennial in 2010), Black Diaspora Visual Art (2011-2), Curating the International Diaspora (London, Gwangju, Sharjah, Barbados and Martinique 2016-7) and Diaspora Pavilion (Venice, Wolverhampton 2017-8).
