Book Launch: Apologia

March 12, 13 & 14, 2021

The books are here! On Friday March 12, 2021 Apologia – the first publication of CAI and a limited edition print of five hundred numbered copies of which the first fifty are not available for the free market – is officially launched at CAI Gallery.

The collectible art book functions as a written publisher statement and apologia or justification for its own existence – and by extent the existence of CAI. The main article discusses the current state of the art when it comes to contemporary figurative painting, one of the main research fields of the platform.

Apologia is available for sale in CAI Gallery or online via the CAI Bookshop. Distribution and shipping (globally) will start on Monday March 15, 2021.
