2017 Annual Conference & Meeting: May 6 - 9, 2017
The Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) & AAMC Foundation 2017 Annual Conference & Meeting, May 6-9, 2017, New York City, is a robust program that furthers our efforts by addressing topics of inclusion and access throughout our entire schedule. In a new, more conversational format, our content-based activities are embracing shared learning through concurrent sessions and dialogues. To encourage an interchange between the speakers and the attendees, we will hold community colloquiums, rather than sessions driven by a lecture format. This interactive process will produce innovative concept building among those present.
On Saturday and Sunday, we have scheduled tours and discussions at local venues. We are proud to include on our tours: The Laundromat Project’s Kelly Street Collaborative; Morris-Jumel Mansion; Museum of Chinese in America; Museum of the City of New York; Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden; the New-York Historical Society Museum & Library; The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum; Socrates Sculpture Park & Mark di Suvero Studio; The Studio Museum in Harlem’s inHarlem program; and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Restored and new buildings, such as the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, and the International Center of Photography at the ICP Museum will host special events to encourage curators to think innovatively. Our main sessions will occur at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Brooklyn Museum with special emphasis on how such major institutions are encouraging community engagement and access.
Please note that registration for the 2017 Annual Conference & Meeting has closed. You may find the full list of Conference attendees here.
