|Art Critics Association Announces Annual Awards|
NEW YORK.- At a ceremony at the Museum of Modern Art to be held on the evening of January 25, 2005, the International Association of Art Critics/USA will present its 2003-2004 AICA Awards to museums and galleries for excellence nationally in the conception and realization of exhibitions. MoMA chief curator John Elderfield will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the event, which will be attended by museum curators, artists, and gallerists from around the country.
Each year, the United States section of the International Association of Art Critics invites its nearly 400 members to vote for the best exhibitions created during that season. The International Association of Art Critics/USA Awards are given in recognition of exceptional work by artists, curators, gallerists, critics, scholars, and cultural institutions. AICA is the only organization to formally recognize excellence in this cultural arena. The annual AICA Awards are the art-world equivalent to those given by the New York Film Critics Circle and the Drama Desk. This year’s Awards Committee includes AICA/USA Co-Presidents Eleanor Heartney and Carey Lovelace, and critic Lilly Wei.
In addition, a special award will be given this year to Robert Rosenblum for distinguished contribution in the field of art criticism.

DISTINGUISHED CONTRIBUTION TO THE FIELD OF ART CRITICISM
The International Association of Art Critics was founded in 1949 as a non-governmental affiliate of UNESCO, the Paris-based International Association of Art Critics (Association International des Critiques d’Art or AICA), which is comprised of 4,000 members in 74 national sections around the world. AICA members include distinguished critics, scholars, curators, and art historians. AICA aims to further and to protect the field of art criticism, to facilitate international communication among critics, to promote the values of art criticism as a discipline and emphasize its contribution to society, and to act on behalf of the physical preservation and moral defense of works of art. AICA/USA is the largest national section of the organization.
