Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia
The Annual Conference is CIMAM’s most important meeting throughout the year. It is attended by directors and curators of modern and contemporary art museums and collections and independent professionals and it is a great opportunity to be involved on the international contemporary art scene.
The CIMAM 2019 Annual Conference will be held in Sydney, Australia on 15–17 November, hosted by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. A post-conference tour has been organized to Brisbane and Stradbroke Island and will include guided tours by Aboriginal custodians on country on 18–19 November 2019.
Over three days, this year’s conference, titled The 21st Century Art Museum: Is Context Everything?, will address the evolving relationship between core museological practices and values and the necessary responsiveness of museums to context in their drive to remain relevant, innovative and accessible.
Keynote speakers include Bruce Pascoe, Aboriginal writer and anthropologist discussing Challenging the Narrative: Indigenous Perspectives; Franklin Sirmans, Director Perez Art Museum Miami looking at the Future of Collections; and Sally Tallant, Director Queens Museum examining how we can go Beyond the Wall.
The CIMAM 2019 Annual Conference will address the evolving relationship between core museological practices and values (related to artists, collections, custodianship, scholarship, display, education and the public) and the necessary responsiveness of museums to context in their drive to remain relevant, innovative and accessible.
