Change has been in constant conversation in planning the 106th Annual Conference in Los Angeles, February 21-24, 2018. In our meetings with LA-based civic and cultural organizations, the idea of change came up over and over again.
From the new museums opening downtown, housing astonishing collections, to the protests in Boyle Heights over gentrification, LA is undergoing a metamorphosis. The parallels to CAA, which is undergoing its own transformation, were hard to ignore.

The early registration deadline is December 15, 2017.
The 2018 Annual Conference will include over 300 themed sessions, is packed with more professional-development workshops than ever, and offers a long list of LA-museums and cultural institutions our attendees can visit for free with their conference badges. We’ve also arranged special events like a reception at The Getty, guided tours of Jasper Johns: Something Resembling Truth at The Broad, and breakfast at LACMA, to name a few.
We are thrilled to welcome Charles Gaines and Wu Hung as our Keynote Speaker and Distinguished Scholar for 2018.
Our Distinguished Artist Interviews for 2018 will feature Catherine Opie interviewed by Helen Molesworth, and one other artist interview to be announced in December 2017.
We look forward to seeing you in LA!
