CAAA /mission

The CAAA Centre for Art and Architecture Affairs is a nonprofit cultural institution whose mission is to support and encourage artistic creation and application of new methods of production, promoting the interaction between the various fields of artistic expression – visual arts, design, film, literature, media and performing arts – and architecture. The CAAA is a structure of production and distribution, which was created by a group of architects and artists from different areas with the intention of generating discussion and collaboration between different artistic and technological platforms, both by sharing a physical space as in the involvement in cultural programming. The CAAA is a new channel of access to contemporary art and architecture exploring new curatorial practices with the contribution of several consultants, curators, directors and art directors guests.
