New York, June 27, 2017 – Registration has opened for Scaling Back With Successful Impact, a live webinar hosted by the Association of Art Museum Curators. Moderated by Sandra Fraser, Curator at Remai Modern, and featuring Srimoyee Mitra, Director at Stamps Gallery, Christine Mullen Kreamer, Deputy Director and Chief Curator at the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, and Randall Suffolk, Director at the High Museum of Art, the conversation will delve into the concept of scaling back, with curators turning to collection-based exhibitions with extended show runs in an effort to reduce pressure on museum staff and finances. In channeling curatorial efforts into fewer, yet more in-depth exhibitions, some curators have found success in managing their additional workload including curatorial research, as well as boosting morale. This webinar, open to members and non-members, will explore the various ways in which curators have reimagined their exhibitions with the intention of a longer show run, and how this shift was introduced and proposed to their institutions. Registration is available through the AAMC Foundation website.

The speakers hail from a wide breadth of locales, as well as professional backgrounds. The opportunity to hear from curators and museum directors alike will undoubtedly provide multiple perspectives, from the curatorial to administrative and executive levels, on the implications and impacts of a shift in exhibition scheduling and execution.

Scaling Back With Successful Impact is part of the AAMC Foundation’s webinar series, which offers live online discussions on essential skills, timely issues, and latest discoveries that define the profession of Art Curator, and enhance understanding and development in the field. Focusing on how curators collaborate and engage with colleagues from other museum departments, and with those outside of the museum, recent webinars have included Curators Thinking DigitallyCurators and Conversations: Successful Cooperation, and The Role of Design & Architecture in Museums of Art, History & Culture.


AAMC & AAMC Foundation

Founded in 2001, and now including over 1,300 members from over 400 institutions around the globe, we are a strong leader for curators in non-profit settings. The mission of the Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) is to support and promote the work of visual art curators in the non-profit sector by creating opportunities for networking, collaboration, professional development, and advancement. In support of these aims, the AAMC Foundation seeks to heighten public understanding of the curator’s non-profit role through programs, discussions and opportunities open to the public and our members. By providing a dynamic forum in which to share ideas and encourage processional development, the Association of Art Museum Curators continues to grow, increasing its visibility and importance to the larger arts community. At the heart of all we do is our goal to celebrate, advance, and advocate for the non-profit sector curator. Our Strategic Plan’s key facets are diversity and advocacy, which now have devoted Task Forces within our organization, with the goals of furthering opportunities for all curators through creating inclusive programming, seeking to define and expand the definition of curator, promoting the curatorial role within our communities, and supporting the highest standards of curatorial ethics and professional behavior.
