The CIMAM 2024 Annual Conference in Los Angeles will address sustainability from an integrated and holistic perspective, beginning with our desire to respond to climate change by reassessing policies around collection care and conservation; rethinking the buildings we occupy and the cities we are part of; while also exploring innovative models for economic sustainability and community building.

Co-hosted by The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), the Hammer Museum at UCLA, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) with lead support from the Getty Foundation and additional support from the Perenchio Foundation and the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, the conference will bring together museum directors, curators, artists, architects and other visionaries who are transforming the field. CIMAM 2024 will coincide with the Getty’s PST ART: Art & Science Collide—a landmark regional event that explores the intersections of art and science, both past and present.
