2018 Annual Conference

The Museum in Transition
2 – 4 November 2018 Stockholm, Sweden

The CIMAM 2018 Annual Conference will be held in Stockholm, Sweden on 2 – 4 November, hosted jointly by Moderna Museet, Bonniers Konsthall and Magasin III Museum & Foundation for Contemporary Art. Two Post-Conference Tours will be organized to Helsinki, Finland and Oslo, Norway respectively on 5 – 6 November.

The Museum in Transition

In the complex and rapidly changing society of today, art institutions face serious challenges. It is arguably harder than ever before for a museum to remain relevant to its growing constituencies. A geographically expanding art world, new technological possibilities and the need to acknowledge diverse publics and perspectives are key aspects of our contemporary condition to which museums and cultural institutions need to respond.

The CIMAM 2018 Annual Conference focuses on the contemporary situation for art institutions in the context of these dynamically shifting technological, cultural, socio-political positions and the challenges of diminishing resources and mixed economies.

How can art institutions navigate in this fast-changing world and maintain their ethical positions? In an unstable political landscape, where standards of integrity are questioned daily, how can we revitalize the arguments to stand by the core values of the museum and of CIMAM?

 

The CIMAM 2018 Contents Committee consists of six board members: Ann-Sofi Noring (chair), Saskia Bos, Suzanne Cotter, Corinne Diserens, Elizabeth Ann Macgregor and Eugene Tan.

→ 2 – 4 November: Annual Conference in Stockholm, Sweden.
