The International Association of Art Critics (Association Internationale des Critiques d’Art, AICA) was founded in 1950 to revitalize critical discourse, which suffered under Fascism during World War II. AICA was initially affiliated with UNESCO as a non-governmental organization. Currently, there are seventy-two member nations representing more than 4,000 art critics.
The main objectives of AICA are:to promote the critical disciplines in the field of visual arts
to ensure their having sound methodological and ethical bases
to protect the ethical and professional interests of art critics by defending the rights of all members equally
to ensure permanent communication among its members by encouraging international meetings
to facilitate and improve information and international exchanges in the field of visual arts
to contribute to the reciproca knowledge and closer understanding of differing cultures
to provide collaboration with developing countries
In November 2008, Elaine A. King represented the United States at the Association of International Art Critics in Barcelona, Spain where she presented a paper titled "Too much of a muchness?: Topography of Tedium."
