XLIX AICA Congress Newsletter05/02/2017
Dear AICA Member,
We are pleased to present to you this Newsletter, which focuses on the XLXI AICA Congress held in Havana, Cuba, last fall. The seven-day event in Cuba included a one-day symposium, “New Utopias: Art, Memory, and Context,” panel discussions, a tour of Havana’s museums and galleries, as well as a two-day post-Congress outside of the Cuban capital, for which we provide several reports and a rich photographic documentation. During the Congress, we presented two of our Awards, for Distinguished Contribution to Art Criticism and for Young Critics.
During that historic event, we held our latest Board and General Assembly, and elected three Vice-Presidents and ten International Board Members. To introduce the newly elected of cials, as well as new National Presidents, we publish their short biographies and pictures.
In addition to the materials mentioned above, this Newsletter contains reports from several AICA Committees and news from the Archives de la critique d’art. It also informs about recent publications by AICA members, as well as about several upcoming events.
As we hightlight here our Congress in Cuba, we are pleased to inform you that our ftieth Congress will take place in Paris, between November 13 and November 17, 2017.
Thanks to all contributors and enjoy! Editors
