The museum of everything: do you have time to look at 150,000 exhibits? - CIMAM

Museums have dabbled with open or visible storage for decades. Although few museums advertise that, what we see in their galleries is a tiny fraction of what they possess: the usual estimate is that 95% of most collections are locked away.

From a block away, it looks like a craft from a more advanced civilisation has landed in the centre of Rotterdam. The structure is futuristic, with walls of mirrored glass curving up some 40 metres, reflecting the iron-grey clouds and the fractured city skyline. It wouldn’t be surprising if it had...

"Can museums maintain the stabilizing position of critical distance, or should criticality extend to involvement in what is happening right now with, for example, the BLM movement as one of the most important symptoms of a much deeper crisis? Therefore, modes of engagement that involve diverse and local communities is a type of change in the museum field that we will have to face very soon."

"Top curators weigh in on role of art during coronavirus, racial reckoning". Written by Rosa Sanchez, and published originally by ABC News

As museums, galleries and outdoor exhibitions start to reopen in New York amid the coronavirus pandemic, at the front of many artists' and curators' minds is the role of visual art in a crisis and whether it is an escape from, a reflection of or a reaction to the state of the world.

Beyond Coronavirus: The Future of Museums

CIMAM's President Mami Kataoka and CIMAM's board member Frances Morris will participate in the seminar "Beyond Coronavirus: The future of Museums" chaired by James Harding and organized by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation to discuss the challenges faced by museums and exhibitions around the world during the current coronavirus crisis, as well as the way these institutions will need to transform themselves in the future.

While the coronavirus pandemic has had wide-reaching financial impacts, the museum sector has been particularly badly hit. It is estimated that one in three of these museums will have to downsize to survive, while 13% may have to close down permanently – this would be the closure of over 10,000 mu...
