New York, January 8, 2019 - The Association of Art Museum Curators Foundation has opened registration for “Demystifying Deaccessioning," a public webinar that will feature a discussion on the various aspects of deaccessioning and the role of a curator throughout the process.

Streamed live on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019 at 2:00 PM ET, the webinar will feature a dialogue between panelists with a wide range of experiences with the topic, including Denene De Quintal, Ph.D, Moderator; Nina Del Rio, Vice Chairman, Americas | Head of Museum Private and Corporate Art Services, Sotheby’s; Julie Hart, Senior Director for Museum Standards and Excellence, American Alliance of Museums; John P.

Each panelist will touch upon their points of view, best practices, and practical questions relating to the nuances of deaccessioning artworks from a museum’s collection. Specific attention will be given to a curator’s responsibilities and voice, available tools and resources, and the impact of deaccessioning on other museum departments. The webinar will conclude with questions posed by the moderator and audience.

Advance registration is required by both AAMC members and members of the public, and is available through AAMC's website:

Demystifying Deaccessioning 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 an art curator, and enhance understanding and development in the field. Starting May 2018, the topics of our 12-month professional development webinar Program has been developed around the central theme of the “outward-facing-curator,” dissecting ways in which curators collaborate and engage with audiences internally & externally.
