A warm welcome to Filipa Ramos to CIMAM!
"In a moment of political and social change like ours, in which all sorts of walls are being built but also in which identities are being radically reshuffled and re-written and funding bodies are undergoing a massive transformation and flow between public and private entities, museums have an even greater responsibility of providing solid models for institutional practices for the 21st century, grounded on collaboration and openness but also rigor and care.
An institution for the study, research and high standards of Museum operativity such as the CIMAM is capable of founding visionary approaches that corroborate the circulation of ideas, images, and values in a transversal, diffused manner, contributing to solidify, restore and renovate the role of Museums in the present and future societies."
Filipa Ramos, Artistic Director, Department of Contemporary Art of the City of Porto, Porto, Portugal
