Now Open: Call for Proposals for Hybrid In-Person and Virtual Art Curators Conference
Following two years of entirely virtual Art Curators Conferences, AAMC & AAMC Foundation have opened a Call for Proposals for our first hybrid in-person and virtual Conference to be held in New York City and online April 30 – May 4, 2022. Panels should center on our 2022 Art Curators theme: Sustainability & Revitalization.
Current AAMC members are invited to submit session proposals through our online portal no later than 5pm E.T. on August 2, 2021.
Through a hybrid format, we hope to ensure access to our Conference content to much of our audiences, and allow for a range of engagement with our sessions. The program will include live and virtual speakers on panels and keynotes alongside in-person and virtual networking and socializing opportunities.
In selecting our 2022 theme, we anticipate dialogues at the Conference reflecting the topic from the standpoint of environmental, societal, racial, equity, and heritage. Proposals should consider numerous angles, such as creating organizational and department financial sustainability; concepts pertaining to preserving art, culture and shared heritage; changing organizational structures; evaluating our collection policies; ensuring a smaller carbon footprint in our work; and many others. We request proposals considering the full spectrum of interpretations, investigating issues holistically and not solely through the curatorial lens. Panels should propose discussions acknowledging the community curators serve. Speakers from for-profit and non-profit sectors are welcome and are not limited to the visual arts sector.
