History

Contemporary Art Daily began in 2008 with the simple goal of publishing at least one international contemporary art exhibition every day. CAD quickly attracted attention from the international art community, publishing high quality documentation from exhibitions ranging from major museums to young commercial galleries. 


After two years, we had accumulated an extensive database of more than 650 exhibition venues from across the world. We turned this database into a free public directory called Contemporary Art Venues. CAV continues to grow, with over 900 venues listed today.


By late 2011, it was clear that we could expand on the success of CAD and CAV by forming Contemporary Art Group, a non-profit organization. We’ve been operating as a 501c3 ever since. 


Our latest project, Contemporary Art Quarterly, launched in Spring 2015. Each quarter, we release archives of three artists’ practices. These archives contain primary research material and documentation: images of exhibitions, artists’ writings, interviews, performance scores, videos, and more. 


We're always laying the groundwork for new projects in accordance with our mission. We hope you will continue to follow and support us.
