Judith Pineiro
Executive Director

Judith Pineiro joined the Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) as Executive Director in January 2014. Since 2012, she had been an External Affairs consultant for global clients, such as Art in General, Louise Blouin Media, The Laundromat Project, Museum of Arts and Design and ArtforMe/Cape Town.

Before starting her independent consulting work, Judith was Director - Affordable Art Fair U.S.; Associate Development Director, Institutional Advancement at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD); and Account Manager - Museum Services Department at Christie’s. She began her career in the decorative arts field at galleries in New York and Los Angeles. 

Judith holds an MA in Art History with a certificate in Curatorial Studies; BA in Art History; and BA in Journalism/Mass Media;  all from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. She is a member of the American Alliance of Museums, ArtTable, Council of Protocol Executives, and Women in Development. Judith also has served as a visual arts re-grant panelist for two years with the Brooklyn Arts Council, and currently serves on ArtTable’s Professional Development and Membership Committees.



Committees & Task Forces

The seven active Committees and two Task Forces rely on the committed participation of members to achieve the AAMC's mission and strategic goals for the year. The AAMC President appoints Committee chairs in consultation with the Executive Director and the Executive Committee. Once selected, the Committee chairs recruit committee members who possess an area of expertise appropriate to the focus of the committee's work. The Executive Committee and the Finance, Fundraising and Audit Committee are staffed by the Board of Trustees whereas the following six are drawn from the full membership of the AAMC.

Additionally, ad hoc committees can be created by the Executive Committee and/or Board of Directors in order to oversee a special project that has a specific timeline. Committees are instrumental to AAMC governance and growth of ideas. They manage ongoing projects and may introduce initiatives that will strengthen the position of the AAMC. The board is, however, the final supervisor of each committee’s activities.
