Word has spread about some of the sessions and our keynote speaker at the 2017 CAA Annual Conference and Artnet News and Artnews have taken notice.

Diversity has long been a part of CAA’s history and this year’s conference is no different. Artnet News notes how race and politics are “at the forefront” of our programming this year. Our effort to find more ways to involve artists and makers in the conference has not gone overlooked either. Brian Boucher, author of the Artnet piece, cites the CAA collaboration with NYFA to offer professional development programming.

At Artnews, writer Maximilíano Durón covers our session on the impact of socially engaged art and our line up of speakers, including keynote Mary Miller, Sterling Professor of History of Art at Yale University, and artists Coco Fusco, Katherine Bradford, and Judith Bernstein.
