The International Association of Art Critics which is headquartered in New York have announced their awards for the 2014-2015 year.  AICA-USA’s membership comprises the largest national section of AICA International: over 400 distinguished critics, curators, scholars, and art historians working throughout the United States. AICA-USA is intent on international communication, elevating the values of art criticism as a discipline, and acting on behalf of the physical and moral defense of works of art.

AICA-USA organises several annual events: a distinguished critic lecture at the New School in New York, a panel discussion about art criticism topics at the College Art Association convention, an annual awards ceremony honoring exhibitions in museums and commercial galleries, and tours to artists’ studios in emerging art neighborhoods. We collaborate with hosting organizations to present topical seminars, panels, and discussions, and partner with Cue and Warhol Foundations to operate mentorship programs for young critics. Each year, in a widely covered event, AICA-USA presents museums, galleries and alternative spaces with Best Show awards, and is the only organization to award excellence in museum and gallery exhibitions. It does so to indicate the standards by which its members judge what they see. An active Professional Issues Committee concerns itself with working conditions for critic, and an Advocacy Committee investigates issues of concern to the profession and advises the board and the membership on actions to take.
