Our Annual Conference & Meeting is a vital part of our mission, as it gathers art curators from every discipline and type of organization together to connect and advance their professional development. The 2016 Conference & Meeting, “AAMC @ 15: Moving Forward”, May 7–10, in Houston, Texas, has been organized to address the most urgent issues facing the curatorial field today.
