NATOarts is an international arts organization which seeks to promote global security and stability through the exhibition of works of conceptual art. It is governed by a nineteen-member board of directors, with representation from each of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization member states.
NATOarts was founded
on April 4th, 1999, by unanimous
motion of the North
Atlantic Committee (NAC 79:5C, Article three).
As an organization
operating under article twenty-three of
the United Nations 1971 Oslo accord, NATOarts is not affiliated with any sovereign state, but instead is governed by a board of directors subject to international law.
As of 2004, NATOarts activities have been suspended until further notice and its founding members are currently pursuing other projects.
