[Call for Papers] ICOM ICFA: Changing rooms?! Permanent displays and their storage
News, Collection Mobility, Projects & Calls | 15.03.2017

ICOM's International Committee for museums and collections of fine arts (ICFA) has issued a call for papers for its annual meeting in September 2017 on displays of permanent collections and the relationship between the exhibition and the storage.

How can museums meet the visitor’s expectations? How can curators keep the display in a traditional way and promote the Art in the storage at the same time?

With these questions in mind proposals from a theoretical standpoint as well as case studies are invited.

Submissions including an abstract and short CV (max.1 page) can be made by 23 April 2017 to ICFA Chair, Christoph Lind at Christoph.Lind@mannheim.de.


The ICFA annual meeting takes place from 15-17 September 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
