Art Deco International is the operating name of the International Coalition of Art Deco Societies (ICADS), a global consortium of more than thirty organizations focused on Art Deco architecture and design. Founded in 1991, Art Deco International members societies are drawn from Europe, North and South America, Australasia, and the Asia Pacific region. Art Deco design was popular all around the world in the first half of the 20th century and continues to have a strong influence on everything from fashion to furniture, including industrial design, architecture, film and advertising.
April 2021 has been declared as “World Art Deco Month”. Art Deco International will host a diverse menu of online events and, where practical, in-person events
The ICADS website and social media platforms have been updated in conjunction with the rollout of Art Deco International and “World Art Deco Day” and a highlight of the relaunched website is a comprehensive calendar of upcoming events. A consolidated listing all the programs being offered as part of the month-long celebration of World Art Deco Day will make the ICADS website a one-stop-shop for Art Deco enthusiasts and newcomers alike. The calendar will continue to be updated with listings of all of the societies’ future events as they are scheduled.
