This prestigious International Association for Research in the History of Art has been operating since 1998 in Paris.
Its main objectives are:
- The promotion of education and research in History of Art and related disciplines
- To intensify cooperation between institutes by facilitating the flow of information on scientific and administrative activities and the implementation of joint projects
