The 2013 Annual Conference of the College Art Association (CAA) is held in New York, New York, Wednesday – Saturday, February 13–16, 2013. Sessions are scheduled for two and a half hours. Chairs develop sessions in a manner that is appropriate to the topics and participants of their sessions. A characteristic, though certainly not standard, format includes four or five presentations on various art topics of twenty minutes each, amplified by audience participation or by a discussant’s commentary. Other forms of presentation about arts are also encouraged.
The Call for Participation for the 101st Annual Conference in New York describes many of next year’s programs sessions. The College Art Association (CAA) and the session chairs invite your participation: please follow the instructions in the booklet to submit a proposal for a paper or presentation. This publication also includes a call for poster session proposals and describes the eight Open Forms sessions.
In addition to dozens of wide-ranging panels on arts, art history, studio art, contemporary issues, and professional and educational practices, CAA conference New York attendees can expect participation from many area schools, museums, galleries, and other institutions. The Hilton New York in midtown Manhattan is the conference headquarters, holding most sessions, career services, the book and trade fair, ARTspace, special events, and more.
