The annual College Art Association (CAA) conference is the continent’s biggest gathering for art historians, critics, scholars, and artists. Four days of panels devoted to a broad range of topics await attendees who are hungry to learn about the latest research and ideas revolving around the world of art. This year, and for the first time, the conference is offering a pay-what-you-wish day pass for those interested in attending a full day of programming. They suggest a donation of $25 (as opposed to the usual $150 fee), and you can listen to panels about post-socialist nostalgia, public art in the era of Black Lives Matter, allegory in Modern art, and dozens of other topics to your heart’s content.
