Upcoming Conference

In 2018, CAA will return to LA for its 106th Annual Conference. The four-day event will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from Wednesday, February 21 through Saturday, February 24. Registration opens in early fall 2017.

CAA’s Annual Conference consists of four days and over 200 presentations, panel discussions, workshops, special events, and exhibitions exploring the study, practice, and history of art and visual culture. As the best-attended international forum in the visual arts, the Annual Conference offers an unparalleled opportunity to expand your professional network, meet with potential employers, and strengthen your skills in a professional-development workshop, mentoring session, or portfolio review. CAA’s annual gathering facilitates networking opportunities and enables you to exchange ideas and information with colleagues from across the globe. 

Individual CAA members receive discounts on conference registration. Institutional members can register up to ten faculty and staff members at the reduced, individual-member rate during the early registration period, and additionally receive the member rate on Interview Hall booths and tables.
