AAMC Condemns Threat to Culture Heritage

Monday, January 6, 2020

January 6, 2020--The Association of Art Museum Curators, which serves an international community and is the foremost voice for all art curators, strongly condemns any threat to our global shared cultural heritage.  Works of art and material culture are critical to the understanding of our past, present and future.  The deliberate targeting of art, architectural, archaeological and cultural sites is not only deplorable, it is also against international treaties to which the United States Government is a signatory, including the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict, the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2347 (2017), and 1972 UNESCO Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. 

We also voice our concern for all people affected during this time of unrest.

About the Association of Art Museum Curators

Founded in 2001, the Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) advances the curatorial field through forward-looking leadership in development and educational opportunities for  learning and connecting at every stage of a curator’s career. In partnership with more than 1,300 members, we serve as a resource for the profession’s best practices, codes of conduct and ethical standards. We provide a platform for the exchange of a broad range of information on critical issues driving the field, including diversity and inclusion, digital innovation, artistic voices and histories, and marketing and audience engagement. Our members include independent curators and staff members from 500+ art organizations and museums in eighteen countries, ranging from leading national institutions to community-based art organizations. Through our work we serve members, professional colleagues, and the public, and our outreach reflects diverse perspectives within the field, often examining strategic directions of curatorial practice and art organization management. With a network spanning the globe, we are an ambassador and advocate for all art curators and the leading champion of their significant contributions.
