2022 Art Curators Conference Early Bird Registration Deadline
Curators from around the world will gather in New York City from April 30 to May 3 for the 2022 Art Curators Conference. We anticipate over 600 attendees to join us for a one-of-a-kind gathering of curatorial decision-makers in museums and nonprofit arts organizations.
Centered on the theme of Sustainability & Revitalization, we will investigate ways forward. Panels, events, keynotes, and networking opportunities at the annual Art Curators Conference will lead to tangible post-conference tools, relationships, and key learnings directly impacting our museum and arts community. Bringing together an international audience, in addition to in-person attendance, virtual attendance is also available.
All attendees, both in person and virtual, will attend each session collectively at the same time and date.
