CIMAM Outstanding Museum Practices Award

CIMAM, the International Committee for Museums and Collection of Modern Art, recognizes the urgency of acknowledging outstanding museum practices of modern and contemporary art museums in response to the severe crisis in the sector.
In early 2020, in light of museum closures due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, CIMAM announced the award for Outstanding Museum Practices in Times of Global Crisis platform to draw attention to the exceptional work done by the museum community around the world at this critical time.
One year later, Suzanne Cotter, a member of the CIMAM Board, Director of the Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, and chair of the Outstanding Museum Practices Award, reaffirms the urgency of promoting the work of modern and contemporary art museums and collections worldwide. "CIMAM is a peer network that promotes exchange and the sustainability of museums. The Award is intended as a platform for visibility that we want to leverage to recognize the work of our colleagues globally," comments Suzanne Cotter.
The selected nominees will be presented in November 2021 and institutions can submit nominations until 30 September 2021. The CIMAM Board will review members’ votes for nominations to identify the practices deemed outstanding. Award winners will receive CIMAM's official recognition for use in their institutions and communication supports.

"We want to recognize the potential of nominated practices that give us permission to think and act differently and to question systemic ways of working that are no longer socially, ethically, or environmentally viable." Suzanne Cotter
