About CONTEMPORARY ARTS INTERNATIONAL

Location:

68 QUARRY RD, ACTON, MA 01720, US

Mission Statement

CAI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization founded and built by two artists with international connections, Yin Peet and Viktor Lois, with headquarters in Acton, Massachusetts. Our Mission is to promote the creation, understanding, and appreciation of contemporary art in the global context. Our scope is global. Our programs include international symposia and exchange, artist-in-residency, art education and exhibitions. Our media focus is three dimensional and multidisciplinary. We encourage experimental work in music/sound art, digital media, performance art, installation, and writing as well as sculpture in the more conventional sense of the word.

Description

The YV Art Museum's 12-acre campus, THE QUARRY, is surrounded by close to 100 acres of town forest. It is the site of a former working granite quarry. The main building-The Red Box Performance Hall- is a 7,000 square foot multi-purpose studio building containing two galleries, a classroom/workshop, a multidisciplinary performance hall, and outdoor working spaces. The facility is equipped with industrial machinery. Also located on the grounds is a house for resident artists with four private bedrooms, an office, shared kitchen, and a gathering room.

The strength of CAI as an art organization in the global context is our international network. Our two Directors are both first-generation immigrant artists with international experience and connections to both foreign and American peers. This vital network between Asia and Europe ultimately benefits the U.S. and international artists. We are confident our organization will continue to serve the community for years to come.
