Notes for Tomorrow

Notes for Tomorrow

Notes for Tomorrow features contemporary artworks brought together to reflect on the cultural transition ushered in by the COVID-19 global pandemic. With the ever-present backdrop of the crisis, Independent Curators International (ICI) turned to 30 curators from 25 countries to question and reassess values and relevance in contemporary culture, and to share an artwork they believe is vital to be seen today.

The publication accompanying the exhibition includes the curatorial text of the ICI exhibitions manager Becky Nahom, where she talks about how the exhibition was conceived during the pandemic. In addition, the publication features a selection of the series “Reports from the Field” which were previously published on ICI’s website. The publication also presents illustrations of the displayed works as well as detailed information about the works, written by the curators.
