CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts is a nonprofit exhibition venue and research institute dedicated to contemporary art and ideas. The Wattis is a laboratory for testing the future of contemporary art through temporary exhibitions, public events, and in-depth research. It is part of the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.

Our mission
What and how can we learn from artists today?

Our approach
The Wattis supports artists who take risks and experiment with new ideas. We provide a public forum to established, emerging, and under-recognized artists who challenge our ways of understanding the art of our current moment.

We currently work with artists in two distinct ways: as an exhibition space, we show new and existing work by artists from around the world; and as a research institute, we commit an entire year to reflecting on the questions posed by a single artist’s work.
