CAA 2018 Annual Conference

Register Now

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.

CAA’s Annual Conference consists of four days and over 300 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 creates a community of practitioners, scholars, and the general public seeking to learn and connect. Attendees expand their professional networks, meet with potential employers, and strengthen their skills in professional-development workshops. CAA’s annual gathering facilitates networking opportunities and enables the exchange of 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.

Beginning this year, CAA launches the Cultural and Academic Network Hall, a new innovation designed to put conference attendees in direct contact with representatives from many of our Institutional Members and cultural institutions. Part exhibition hall, part candidate center, and part meeting place, the Cultural and Academic Network Hall is the new space for candidates, the general public, cultural institutions, and academic departments to meet face-to-face. Learn more and book a booth in the Cultural and Academic Network Hall.
