The annual CIMAM conference in Buenos Aires


The annual conference of CIMAM – the International Committee for Museums and Collections of Modern Art – was held from 9 to 11 November at the largest and most important meeting of curators and directors of institutions presenting contemporary art. This year, members of the organisation, special guests and representatives of art institutions met in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The conference was hosted by the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires and Director Victoria Northoorn.

The three-day event fostered discussions about the social and educational mission of contemporary art museums and the active role museums can play in building an inclusive 21st century society. In addition to the agenda, an important highlight of this year’s edition were visits to the studios of artists, curators and visits to the cultural spaces of Buenos Aires according to the thematic paths and interests of the participants.

As the Andrzej Wróblewski Foundation, we visited, among others, the home and archive of Leon Ferrari (1920-2013) and the Foundation founded by the artist’s family, the archive of the liberation movements, the Narcisa Hirsch exhibition at the Kirchner Cultural Center and contemporary art exhibitions such as the Edgardo Gimenez retrospective at the Museo MALBA.

The Andrzej Wróblewski Foundation’s participation in the event was made possible thanks to the support of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.
