CAA is selling advance tickets to the opening reception of the 101st Annual Conference through Wednesday, January 23, 2013, at 5:00 PM EST. Admission to the event—which will take place at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on Wednesday evening, February 13, 7:00–9:00 PM—is $40 for CAA members and $55 for nonmembers.
Please contact CAA’s Member Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-691-1051, ext. 1, to purchase your ticket today. In New York, tickets will be sold at Registration at the Hilton New York but not at the museum. Avoid the rush for tickets at the Hilton by purchasing yours in advance.
At the museum, attendees may preview Gutai: Splendid Playground, the first North American exhibition devoted to Gutai, the influential artistic collective in postwar Japan and one of the most important avant-garde movements of the 1950s and 1960s.
The Guggenheim is located at 1071 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. To get there from the conference hotels, take the 4, 5, or 6 train to 86th Street. Walk west on 86th Street, turn right at Fifth Avenue, and proceed north to 88th Street. To reach the museum by bus, take the uptown M1, M2, M3, or M4 bus on Madison Avenue.
