Intellect at CAA

99th Annual College Art Assn Conference

9–12 February 2011 – New York, New York
Art was in the air as Intellect joined over 10,000 attendees at this year’s 99th annual College Art Association conference New York City. The CAA convention draws an international crowd of artists, curators and scholars, and is one of the most influential events of its kind in the world.  Over a three-day period, representatives from nearly 100 different countries contributed to more than 810 panel sessions ranging from Exploration of New Media to Policing Sacred Art. The energy, curiosity and participation of the crowds made for a memorable convention. And what other event provides entry to some of the world’s top museums and galleries (Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim, Modern Museum of Art, to name just a few) as part of your conference registration? It doesn’t get any better than this.
Representing Intellect were North American representatives Amy Damutz, based in the U.S., and Kyra Kordoski, who flew in from Canada. This was Intellect’s third year exhibiting at CAA, and the response of attendees to Intellect’s latest books and journals portfolio was nothing short of phenomenal.
Both Kyra and I had time to meet potential authors and editors as well as to attend selected panel discussions.  Two Meet-the-Editor sessions were held at our booth to introduce our newest art journals to a wider audience. Jennifer Fisher and Jim Drobnick spoke with a large group of curators and scholars interested in learning more about the launch of The Journal of Curatorial StudiesJames Daichendt, editor of the forthcoming journal Visual Inquiry: Learning & Teaching Art was able to meet with many interested contributors, as well as discuss his current book, Artist-Teacher.
Back in North Carolina, I am busy following up with those I had formal meetings with, new acquaintances and those who’d stopped by and left business cards. That’s what CAA is all about – making connections, forging new relationships, letting folks know there’s a publisher like Intellect interested in their work, and exchanging ideas. We look forward to receiving new proposals and journal submissions.  You’re encouraged to examine the Publish with Us section of our website or contact me directly at  or Kyra at with any questions. 
Thanks to Paul Skiff and the other CAA organizers for pulling together such a successful event.  We look forward to seeing you at next year’s 100th CAA Conference in Los Angeles, 22-25 February 2012!
