CIMAM, International Committee for Museums and Collections of Modern Art, is an international forum of professional character for the discussion of theoretical, ethical and practical issues concerning the collection and exhibition of modern and contemporary art.
CIMAM is essentially composed of the directors and curators of modern and contemporary art
museums and collections but also integrates independent professionals who’s knowledge and experience are beneficial to this community.
CIMAM Members are museum professionals, they include the directors and curators of museums or institutions qualifying as Museums as well as training and research institutions which are beneficial for the advancement of the modern and contemporary art museum community respecting the ICOM Code of Ethics for Museums and CIMAM’s Principles of Deaccession.
Around 200 delegates are expected to attend ClMAM 2013 Annual Conference in Rio de Janeiro. Three keynote speakers and six case study presentations will be conforming the bases of a larger debate that will take place among the conference delegates. The active implication of members and delegates will be requested through extended Q&A, workshop sessions and visits to the foremost contemporary art institutions and spaces in the city to reflect upon the issues arising from the conference topics.
ClMAM 2013 Annual Conference is hosted at MAM Rio - Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro and organized in collaboration with Suzy Muniz Produçoes (www.mamrio.com.br).

Fellowships are restricted to modern and contemporary art curators and museum directors who work in emerging and developing economies (Emerging Market and Developing Economies according to the International Monetary Fund’s World Economic Outlook Report). They include those professionals whose nationality is not from a Country listed as an emerging economy but live and work in one of these countries. Researchers and independent curators whose field of research and specialization is contemporary art theory and museums will be also eligible. While curators of all career levels are encouraged to apply, we are especially interested in receiving applications from junior curators who have less than 10 years experience in the field. Applicants who previously received CIMAM fellowships supported by the Getty Foundation will not be considered for a new grant before 3 years.
