CIMAM, International Committee for Museums and Collections of Modern Art, is an International Committee of ICOM.
CIMAM is an international forum of professional character for the discussion of theoretical, ethical and practical issues concerning the collection and exhibition of modern and contemporary art.
CIMAM Members are museum professionals, they include the directors and curators of museums or institutions qualifying as Museums as well as training and research institutions which are beneficial for the advancement of the modern and contemporary art museum community respecting the ICOM Code of Ethics for Museums and CIMAM’s Principles of Deaccession.
The Committee’s major objective is to develop cooperation and knowledge by identifying and responding to the needs and issues faced by modern and contemporary art institutions and the profession. CIMAM has generated reference professional codes such as the General Principles on Conditions of Deaccession from Modern and Contemporary Museum Collections, adopted in November 2009, and has promoted the Contemporary Art Museum Watch advocacy program concentrating on the different critical situations of contemporary art museums and collections in regions affected by world economical and political crises.
