THE 109TH CAA ANNUAL CONFERENCE
New York City, February 10–13, 2021
Hilton New York Midtown
The CAA Annual Conference brings together over 5,000 art historians, artists, designers, and visual arts professionals in all stages of their careers. Each year we offer sessions selected by the CAA Council of Readers and the Annual Conference Committee, representing the vast scholarship and practice of CAA members.
Members submit proposals each year to be reviewed by the Annual Conference Committee Council of Readers. The Committee considers subject areas and themes that arise from proposals to present as broad and diverse a program as possible. The Committee selects approximately 250 sessions for each conference and must, at times, make difficult decisions on submissions of high merit. This means that on occasion, quality submissions may not be selected.
CAA schedules the conference program so that there are back-to-back sessions with similar content. However, given the number of sessions, this is not always possible.
All sessions are 90 minutes in length and are scheduled Wednesday, through Saturday of the conference in the following timeslots:
- 8:30–10:00 AM
- 10:30 AM–12:00 PM
- 2:00–3:30 PM
- 4:00–5:30 PM
- 6:00–7:30 PM (Thursday and Friday only)
