IAA Europe General Assembly in 2021
The IAA Europe Annual Conference and General Assembly planned for 2020 unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. However, planning is already underway for the IAA Europe Annual Meeting in 2021, which is expected to take place in Helsinki on 23 and 24 September 2021.
Besides IAA Europe, the hosts will be the IAA National Committees from Finland (Artists' Association of Finland) and from the United Kingdom (a-n The Artists Information Company).
The General Assembly is to be combined with a conference that will again address the issue of exhibition remuneration in the European IAA member countries. The event will follow on from the first pan-European conference on this topic held by IGBK, IAA Europe, VG Bild-Kunst and the organization European Visual Artists (EVA) in Brussels in 2018, and will discuss it in more depth, with new and updated country reports, and jointly develop lobbying strategies.
