Beyond the Frame is a 22-month long project tackling the under-representation of curators from diverse backgrounds at senior levels within the visual arts. The participants were selected as the result of an open call and will work closely with ICF Director David A. Bailey over the duration of the project, during which they will have the opportunity to take part in masterclasses and one-on-one mentoring sessions with the listed mentors, will discuss topics and issues in the field of curating together in group forum, will attend conferences that also address relevant topics in the field of curating, will travel to international institutions and events such as the Sharjah Biennial, the Venice Biennale and Prospect New Orleans, and will undertake projects in the UK in partnership with University of the Arts London, Iniva and New Art Exchange. Beyond the Frame is supported by Arts Council England Elevate Fund and will culminate with a public conference on diversity in the arts in the UK in which the experiences and results of this initiative will be discussed.
