With more than 90 member organisations the International Association of Art (IAA) is the world’s largest international NGO of visual artists. Its members regularly exchange information on the working conditions of visual artists in different regions of the world and develop substantiated position reports on the basis of this information. The IAA thus performs its most important task: being a competent partner of UNESCO in all aspects related to the status of the visual artist. The office of IAA is situated in Paris, France.

After a break of several years, the IAA met for its General Assembly in presence in Istanbul in February 2023. In the board elections scheduled for this meeting, Kwang Soo Lee from Korea was elected president by the delegates. Other members on the new IAA board are Maria Moroz (vice president, Poland), Vahida Ramujkic (treasurer, Serbia), Marta Yglesias Piza (Costa Rica), Sofia de la Fuente (Sweden), Ryoji Ikeda (Japan), Kathe Madrigal (USA), Stacie McCormick (UK), Marcel Noack (Germany), Igors Dobicins (Latvia) and Graciela Ferreiro Robles (Mexico).
