We are pleased to welcome Anne Hilde Neset to CIMAM
"CIMAM provides me with an international network of curators and institutions. By joining CIMAM I look forward to getting a better sense of global contemporary art discussions especially beyond the Anglo-European context."
"We need our art institutions to be unwavering in their commitment to maintaining spaces where creativity can thrive across class, race and gender and how they can feed knowledge, awareness and engagement back into the local communities. At a time of increasing political polarisation coupled with strong commercial forces in the arts, it is important to globally strengthen the work to maintain the artists´ right to free expression and to ensure that diverse and independent art has a strong voice. This focus is important on a global and local level. With CIMAM I hope to better understand the mechanisms and issues at stake within contemporary art institutions internationally."
