Amanda de la Garza invites you to attend CIMAM’s 2023 Annual Conference

5 July 2023

"What is the role of museums in society?

"What is our responsability towards many different topics that are relevant for us as institutions?"

Amanda de la Garza, CIMAM Board member, Director Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC)

9–11 November 2023
Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, Argentina

For the first time in CIMAM’s history, the Conference will focus on the social role of the art museum. This function lies at the natural heart of museum practices in Latin America, where many museums vigorously take up the mantle of responding to lesser developed economic contexts in which social disparity, inequality and discrimination are the order of the day. Cultural institutions in this region are highly experienced in collaborating with artists to position the arts as a vehicle for the development of the imagination, the expansion of concepts and forms of education, the production of communal and individual knowledge, and resistance to authoritarianism
