Directors and curators from around the world will meet in Sydney from 15 to 17 November for the International Committee for Museums and Collections of Modern Art (CiMAM) Annual Conference hosted by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. CiMAM is the leading forum for modern and contemporary art directors and curators to build networks and discuss industry practices. First held in 1962, the CiMAM annual conference has been met in over 30 cities worldwide and this is the second time it has been held in Australia.
The theme of the Conference is ‘The 21st Century Art Museum: Is Context Everything?’ and will consider evolving relationships between museum practices and values and the responsiveness of museums to remain relevant, innovative and accessible to audiences, including Indigenous perspectives, digital collection strategies and audience engagement.
The Australian Government is contributing $25,000 to support CiMAM, in addition to a $25,000 contribution from the Australia Council for the Arts.
