For the next few days I'll be at the College Art Association's Annual Conference in New York. For those unfamiliar or who have not had the chance to attend, what is commonly called "CAA" is--and here I quote CAA:
"A gathering of 6,000 artists, art historians, students, educators, critics, curators, collectors, librarians, and gallerists for four days of presentations and panel discussions exploring the study, practice, and history of art and visual culture. The conference program boasts more than 200 sessions, a variety of career-development workshops for professionals at all stages of their careers, mentoring and networking opportunities, and prospects for interviews with colleges, universities, and museums. The Book and Trade Fair will gather dozens of publishers of art books, journals, and magazines, the leading manufacturers and distributors of materials for artists, and cutting-edge providers of digital images and resources, among other companies and organizations...Artists and scholars flock to the conference for its intellectual, creative, and professional discussion."
