Rifky Effendy speaks at the ICI’s Curator’s Perspective, an itinerant public discussion series that features international curators who distill current happenings in contemporary art, including the artists they are excited by, exhibitions that have made them think, and their views on recent developments in the art world.

ICI developed the Curator’s Perspective as a way for international curators to share their research and experiences with audiences in New York. These talks provide ICI the opportunity to assemble documents on and disseminate information about a wide variety of international perspectives on art today.
