Powell of Duke University. The two Distinguished Artists’ Interviews will feature the sculptor Joyce Scott, speaking to the curator George Ciscle.

Manthorne; “Transforming Japonisme: International Japonisme in an Age of Industrialization and Visual Commerce,” led by Gabriel P. Weisberg; and the two-part “Formalism before Clement Greenberg,” chaired by Katherine M. Kuenzli and Marnin Young. Other exciting session topics range from art as adventure to the Hudson River School, from digital cultural heritage to algorithms and data in contemporary art, and from diversity in curatorial work to staging design in museums.

posted by August 05, 2011

The website for the 100th Annual Conference and Centennial Celebration, taking place February 22–25, 2012, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, is now live. Get a taste of conference highlights and read about what you receive with registration, such as access to all program sessions and admission to the Book and Trade Fair.

You may also begin thinking about your travel plans: American Airlines, Amtrak, and Avis provide promotional codes for special reduced rates, and CAA offers three travel stipends for attendees, including twenty awards through the newly established CAA International Travel Grant Program, generously funded by the Getty Foundation. Companies and organizations interested in exhibiting in the Book and Trade Fair will find application materials, booth descriptions, and preliminary schedules.

Between now and February, CAA will update the website regularly, with new information on the Awards for Distinction presentation, special receptions, postconference tours, and more. Later this month, CAA will publish the names of the three conference hotels and list room rates and reservation instructions. The titles of program sessions, events in ARTspace, biographies of the Convocation speaker and Distinguished Scholar, participants in the Annual Artists’ Interviews, and topics of professional-development workshops will come later this fall.

Online registration will open in early October 2011, with the lowest rates available for members and nonmembers alike between then and early December.

Attendees of the 99th Annual Conference and Centennial Kickoff will have three opportunities to meet Susan Ball, CAA executive director emerita, as well as many of the fifteen contributors to The Eye, the Hand, the Mind: 100 Years of the College Art Association, the newly published book that surveys the impressive history of the organization from 1911 to the present.

After Convocation, Ball and others will sign copies of the book at a table in the foyer outside the East Ballroom, 3rd Floor, Hilton New York. This year’s Convocation, which takes place on Wednesday, February 9, 5:30–7:00 PM, features a keynote address by the pioneering eco-artists Newton and Helen Mayer Harrison that you will not want to miss.

In the Book and Trade Fair, Rutgers University Press will host two author signings on Thursday and Friday afternoons, at a time to be announced. CAA encourages you to stop by the press’s booth (#604) near the front entrance of the Americas I Ballroom and say hello to Ball and the other authors.

The impressive 330-page book, published by CAA and Rutgers University Press, celebrates the beginning of CAA’s Centennial year. In honor of this milestone, Rutgers will offer a 50 percent discount on any other press title that is purchased during the conference when you buy a copy of The Eye, The Hand, The Mind at the booth.
