International Arts & Artists (IA&A), established in 1995, is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to promoting cross-cultural understanding and exposure to the arts internationally through exhibitions, programs, and services to artists, arts institutions, and the public.
With over 25 years of experience, IA&A’s Traveling Exhibition Service develops and circulates premiere fine and decorative arts exhibitions designed for both large and small museums, as well as cultural institutions in the US and abroad. Our diverse range of exhibitions are curated to help organizations attain their strategic goals by enabling them to engage their community, increase public awareness, develop meaningful programming, and foster enhanced support.
With our extensive network of partners, lenders, and host venues, IA&A manages over 30 traveling exhibitions each year, with 15 to 20 exhibitions on view at any given time. To date, IA&A has organized over 100 unique exhibitions and over 770 presentations in all 50 U.S. states and 24 foreign countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Japan, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
IA&A’s experienced staff manages all logistics related to touring an exhibition to multiple venues including preliminary exhibition development, lender and registrar services, insurance, shipping and courier services, installation and de-installation, marketing and promotion, as well as other needs that may arise. IA&A also provides exhibition catalogue design services, as well as cultural exchange opportunities and visa assistance for international artists and scholars. For museums that may lack the time, staff, or resources, IA&A takes care of all the details and logistics for both lenders and host museums.
