Irish Association of Art Historians

Since its foundation in 1972 the principal aim of the Association has been the advancement of the study of the history of art at every level in Ireland: in art galleries and museums, in universities, in art schools and departments, in the school system, and through independent scholarship and publication. Membership is open to professional art historians and also to all who share the aims of the IAAH, irrespective of professional or educational status.

In addition to Artefact an integral part of the Association’s aim to promote the research and scholarship being undertaken countrywide in art & architectural history, design history, material and visual culture studies is the annual IAAH Artefact Study Day which takes place in late spring.

The IAAH is the representative association for art historians in Ireland and is responsible for the election of the Irish National Committee of the Comité International d’Histoire de l’Art (CIHA).
