IACCCA, short for International Association of Corporate Collections of Contemporary Art, is a non-profit organisation made up of over 50 corporate collections from across the globe. Together with our members, we reflect on the specific challenges and responsibilities of managing corporate art collections in the world of today and prepare for that of tomorrow.
IACCCA is a unique international network of curators who represent the best corporate collections of contemporary art around the globe. Together, we set management and organisation standards for corporate collections by establishing guidelines for professional practice and targets for collections. Our mission is to acknowledge the importance of companies’ commitment to art and increase awareness of the artistic and patrimonial value of each member’s collection. By engaging stakeholders in an educational dialogue, we seek to enhance the importance of contemporary art in both our corporations and in broader society.
To put our vision into practice, IACCCA organises several events annually. Ranging from collection visits to workshops or webinars, our events enable members to meet and share their expertise. IACCCA members also take part in task groups designed to undertake advanced research on specific subjects and challenges. Dedication to the development of best practices makes IACCCA a leading global think tank for corporate collections.
Our Board is currently composed of the following eight IACCCA members, who serve on a voluntary basis:
The idea to establish IACCCA arose from a series of informal roundtables held between curators of corporate art collections in the early 2000s. Our founder Jacqueline d’Amécourt, then Curator of the Lhoist Collection in Belgium, realised from these encounters that while the different corporate collections had a lot in common, they barely knew each other. This realisation fuelled her desire to create an association that could bring together the expertise of corporate art collections. Accordingly, in 2007 the International Association of Corporate Collections of Contemporary Art, or IACCCA, was formally launched.
