CIMAM calls its members to apply to host its Annual Conference in 2022 and 2023.

If you are a CIMAM member and would like to welcome the 2022 or 2023 CIMAM Annual Conference, you can now apply to become the host of one of the most expected professional meetings on the international contemporary art museum agenda.

Hosting CIMAM's Annual Conference is a unique opportunity to present your institution to prominent opinion leaders, introduce the artistic environment where it coexists, and the city that contextualizes it. Moreover, in 2022 CIMAM will commemorate its 60th Anniversary with a special event that will review the history and evolution of the museums of modern and contemporary art and CIMAM since its foundation in 1962, making that edition a very significant one for both CIMAM and the hosting institution.

The Annual Conference is CIMAM's most significant contribution to the field. Receiving this meeting is a wonderful occasion for CIMAM members to foster active debate on critical issues and an essential resource for international collaboration and cooperation among professionals working in modern and contemporary art museums.

CIMAM has organized more than 50 annual conferences in over 30 different cities since its founding in 1962, making it a regular event on modern and contemporary art professionals' agendas. The Annual Conference consists of a three-day program with keynote and perspective lectures, round tables, workshops, and visits to contemporary art museums and other institutions in the host city.

This quality content agenda offers outstanding value for attendees, and from 2021, CIMAM introduces the hybrid format allowing virtual attendance for reasons of accessibility. This is an opportunity to invite a wider audience of professionals to take part in the discussions.

All the contents generated during the three days of the meeting, which are of great theoretical and practical interest for the professional community of contemporary art, are available to anyone on the CIMAM website.

If you wish to apply, please read the guidelines and submit your application. The last day to apply is Wednesday 30 June 2021.

This November, the CIMAM Board will elect the candidates for 2022 and 2023 only. The selected candidate will be announced on Sunday 7 November at the General Assembly in Gdansk, Poland.
