111th CAA Annual Conference
New York, NY, February 15—18, 2023 (with in-person and virtual sessions) 


The Annual Conference is a major part of CAA’s history and transformation, a program that strengthens and engages our overall membership. The conference is the largest professional convening of art historians, artists, designers, curators, and visual art professionals. Each year we offer sessions submitted by our members, committees, and affiliated societies offering a wide range of content.

The Annual Conference Committee and Council of Readers review hundreds of submissions annually. They take into account subject areas and themes that arise from accepted proposals to present as broad and diverse a program as possible.

The Call for Proposals invited submissions for the 2023 CAA Annual Conference.  Proposals were submitted from March 13–April 26, 2022.
