Founded in 2001, the Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) Foundation advances the curatorial field through forward-looking leadership in development and educational opportunities. With a network spanning the globe, we are an ambassador and advocate for all art curators and the leading champion of their significant contributions. We seek to deepen appreciation of curators’ vital role in the advancement and understanding of the history, meaning and purpose of the visual arts. AAMC Foundation offers opportunities for learning and connecting at every stage of a curator’s career by providing 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. With programming serving over 1300 curators, professional colleagues, and the public annually, our outreach reflects diverse perspectives within the field, often examining strategic directions of curatorial practice and art organization management. All of our efforts are focused on being inclusive of self-identifiers (by nation, gender, creed, race), fields of expertise, types of organizations, and geographical location. Wherever possible, programs are filmed and documented to ensure longtime access. As the field continues to evolve, the AAMC Foundation is at the forefront of nurturing and shaping the voice and leadership of the next generation of curators while continuing to foster the values of inclusion, access, and collaboration across the profession.
