A total of 24 modern and contemporary art museum professionals residing in 19 different cities have been awarded support to attend the CIMAM 2019 Annual Conference The 21st Century Art Museum: Is Context Everything? that will be held in Sydney, Australia 15–17 November 2019 hosted jointly by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.

Launched in 2005, CIMAM’s Travel Grant Program is designed to foster cooperation and cultural exchange between contemporary art curators and museums directors in emerging and developing economies and their counterparts in other regions of the world.

Oksana Kapishnikova was unable to attend the CIMAM 2019 Annual Conference in Sydney as she had trouble issuing her transit visa. Unfortunately, the travel grantee could not solve it in time, and could not make it to Sydney.
