AICA Ireland

The International Association of Art Critics – Ireland (AICA Ireland) is the Irish section of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA).  Ireland has been an active member of AICA International from its foundation in 1948/1949 in Paris. The Irish membership includes leading critics, essayists, and theoreticians, as well as honorary life members.

AICA Ireland promotes professional practice and exchange among the professionals who work in the area of critical discourse, stimulating research and reflection within the visual arts, education and culture. Members are issued with a press card, updated with a yearly stamp, which is recognized for entrance to museums and art events around the world. AICA Ireland members benefit from quarterly meetings, a monthly newsletter, as well as additional events that support the practice of its members. Members are also informed of relevant international members activities in the bi-yearly AICA Newsletter and are invited to the Annual AICA International Congress, held in a different nation each year.
