Registration is Now Open! Join the CIMAM 2022 Annual Conference
This year's CIMAM Annual Conference is not to be missed. We are turning 60 and want to celebrate with you in Spain from November 11-13, at Es Baluard Museu d'Art Contemporani de Palma.
Join us for these exciting three-day discussions to explore how museums can embrace, partner, and actively listen around the theme of "The Attentive Museum," an opportunity to take an expansive view of the work that can and should be done to ensure museums of relevance and impact.
The Attentive Museum. Permeable Practices for a Common Ground
On the occasion of CIMAM's 60th anniversary (1962–2022), this year's Annual Conference will explore how museums can actively embrace, partner, and listen. It will also claim the urgency for museums to adapt and become spaces of shared encounter and hospitality, allowing themselves to be a permeable and vulnerable community capable of embodying multiple bodies; institutional, political, social, human, or non-human.
The Attentive Museum is an opportunity to take an expansive view of the work that can and should be done to ensure museums of relevance and impact. Can we develop institutional practices that make sense for all of contemporary society, even in these times of conflict and war? How can we put into practice the skill of active listening within our museum community and reach beyond?
