Description ICI's mission is to enhance the understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through traveling exhibitions and other activities that will reach a diverse national and international audience. Collaborating with a wide range of eminent curators, ICI develops its program of innovative traveling exhibitions and substantial catalogues to introduce and document sometimes challenging new work in all mediums by younger as well as more established artists from the United States and abroad. ICI is the only organization of its kind. The exhibitions it develops, organizes, and circulates present a variety of recent trends and aesthetic concerns. Acting as a laboratory of ideas and innovative curatorial approaches, ICI exhibitions feature a thought-provoking mix of subjects and artists. In this way, ICI provides opportunities for artists-frequently their first-to have their work seen widely in a critical context. ICI substantially underwrites the exhibitions' booking fees through its fundraising efforts. By doing so, it fulfills one of its basic objectives: to make ICI exhibitions accessible to a wide range of arts institutions and thus to enable many different audiences to experience the art of our time. Since its founding in 1975, ICI has created almost ninety exhibitions that collectively have included the work of more than 2,000 artists. ICI exhibitions have been presented by over 400 museums, university art galleries, art centers, and alternative spaces in the United States and abroad. Each year, ICI exhibitions are on view in thirty to forty cities throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. ICI exhibitions provide diverse audiences with the opportunity to learn about significant developments in contemporary art internationally, and to understand those developments in relation to other current cultural trends and issues. The catalogues that accompany all ICI exhibitions enhance their educational impact by placing the exhibited work in art-historical, socio-political, or philosophical contexts. Additional educational materials are provided with each exhibition.
