CIMAM’s Museum Watch Committee: What We Do and Why We Do it

Following an extraordinary year in which all museums have faced unprecedented challenges, the need for an active voice advocating for transparent, fair, and accountable governance of museums as essential civic spaces is needed now more than ever. Museum Watch Committee provides a voice for our CIMAM Members in crisis by highlighting critical issues and generating debate and shared reflection on the key issues affecting museums today.

The Museum Watch Committee would like to invite CIMAM members to join them in a discussion on some of the most recent work undertaken by the CIMAM committee and a consideration of the role that the Committee can play in supporting the work of our community of contemporary art museum professionals.

Moderated by Sarah Glennie, panelists representing the Museum Watch working group will be Bart de Baere, Calin Dan, and Victoria Noorthoorn.

The 2020–2022 Museum Watch Committee consists of six board members of CIMAM:
