TFAP@CAA - The Feminist Art Project
Skip to main content


Since 2007, the TFAP@CAA Day of Panels have brought together exceptional groups of artists, art historians, curators, and critics for a day of dialogue during the annual College Art Association (CAA) Conferences. CAA has been a founding program partner of The Feminist Art Project since its inception in 2005. TFAP became an Affiliated Society of CAA in 2016. We are grateful for CAA’s generosity in providing meeting rooms, publicity, technical support, and assistance that gives greater visibility throughout the conference week to women artists, feminist concerns, and supports the mission of TFAP. Additionally, TFAP collaborates with CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts (CWA) which researches and makes available published studies on the status of women in the arts while working with CAA to analyze women’s current professional status through questionnaires and databases.

In conjunction with the 2021 College Art Association Annual Conference

TFAP@CAA 2017 Day of Panels, Crossroads: Art + Native Feminisms


In 2007, Anne Swartz, Professor of Art History, Savannah College of Art and Design, organized the first TFAP Day of Panels and performances for the CAA conference in NYC. Since then, the TFAP@CAA program has become a staple in the CAA conference itinerary. The Feminist Art Project would like to thank Anne Swartz for creating the annual TFAP@CAA Day of Panels and serving as Project Coordinator 2007-2011. Through Anne’s efforts, the art world, the CAA and WCA communities, and emerging professionals gained access to cutting edge work and ideas of artists, curators, performers and scholars, up close and through a feminist lens. Anne contributed many planning hours, acting as the liaison between TFAP and panel chairs and ensuring that the annual day of panels ran smoothly. Anne’s gift to all of us has been an ongoing forum for feminist issues and discussions of global art and art history. Brava Anne!
