"The Museum in Transition"
In the complex and rapidly changing society of today, art institutions face serious challenges. It is arguably harder than ever before for a museum to remain relevant to its growing constituencies. A geographically expanding art world, new technological possibilities and the need to acknowledge diverse publics and perspectives are key aspects of our contemporary condition to which museums and cultural institutions need to respond.

The CIMAM 2018 Annual Conference focuses on the contemporary situation for art institutions in the context of these dynamically shifting technological, cultural, socio-political positions and the challenges of diminishing resources and mixed economies. How can art institutions navigate in this fast-changing world and maintain their ethical positions?

Day 1: Global Realities—Challenges for Modern and Contemporary Museums
Day 2: The Future Intelligence of Museums
Day 3: Ethics of Museums in an Age of Mixed Economy

CIMAM's Annual Conference is the most important forum for information exchange within modern and contemporary art practice. Its guiding principle is the discussion of questions relating to the running and development of contemporary art museums and collections worldwide followed by visits to the foremost contemporary art institutions, collections and projects in the region.
