Lowry, Alexis.jpg

"I am especially interested in CIMAM’s collective commitment to questions of sustainability within the field of museum work, as well as the resources it offers curators who are invested in addressing the pressing social questions of our times. I know that my own research and practice, as well as the work I do institutionally, would be greatly enhanced by access to the wealth of resources developed and shared through CIMAM."
