The IAVC is an association of individuals and institutions committed to visual culture. Join us by submitting your info to the form here. We admit new members at any time.

We do not currently charge for an IAVC membership, but will soon roll out a nominal sliding scale fee structure for conference attendance. These fees will help us to host the conference and to keep our organization running. Any remaining funds will support resources that build our global network, focused specifically on regions currently underrepresented in our dialogues.


Members are invited to contribute content to our newsletter, which appears three times per year. This includes: Call for Papers, Book announcements, Exhibition announcements, and the like.

Membership in the IAVC is best experienced in situ, that is to say, in the space of our biannual meetings. At these conferences you will see a wide range of international speakers, as well as receive opportunities for close and meaningful exchange with conference attendees. The IAVC believes strongly in facilitating connections to the host site. Your conference fees help us to coordinate with local organizations, artists, and community members.
