CFP: Session Celebrating Female Agency in the Arts (New York, 26-27 Jun 18)

“Public Agency in Private Spaces: Politics, Painting, and Patronage in the Long Eighteenth Century”

New York, NY, June 26 – 27, 2018
Deadline: Jan 10, 2018

Christie’s Education Symposium 2018: Celebrating Female Agency in the Arts

Scholars across disciplines have long probed the relationship between politics and art in the public sphere in the long eighteenth century—the tumultuous, seminal historical period that saw the rise of the Enlightenment, modern systems of representative democracy, and, eventually, the Industrial Revolution. Yet, to date, scholarship of this period has largely failed to notice female artists and patrons, despite their omnipresence in public shows and frequent initiation of substantial commissions. Similarly, political history has overlooked non-royal women, despite their strong influence as the wives, mothers, and sisters of politicians.

CONF: The Limits of Art in the Museum (Madrid, 28-30 Nov 17)

Madrid, Facultad de Geografía e Historia
28-30 November, Madrid (Spain)

MUSACCES Consortium (UCM-UNED-UAM) invites you to attend the International Conference «The Limits of Art in the Museum», which will be held the 28th, 29th and 30th of November in Madrid (Spain).

The Conference aims to create a space of exchange and debate for museum managers, professors, researchers, artists, students and professionals of the cultural world. The frontiers or limits in the conception of art and its shape in museums will be subjects of debate.

Our International Conference has the will to become a forum of reflection about the conceptual problematic of art in the museums nowadays. We hope that the permeability of intellectual frontiers in the different disciplines (Art History, museology, art critics, aesthetics, communication, education, technology, heritage preservation and restoration, etc.) will allow us to caress the limits of art.

CONF: Art Dealers, America and the International Art Market, 1880-1930 (Los Angeles, Jan 18-19, 2018)

The Getty Research Institute presents a symposium on the role of international art dealers in creating the collections, museums, and intellectual culture of the American art world in the late 19th and early 20th century. Bringing together rich archival resources from the Getty Research Institute and peer institutions, and capitalizing on new methodologies made possible by the extraordinary quantity of information contained in the documentary record, this symposium illuminates the ways in which art dealers contributed to making America a prominent arena in the international art market, and their role in creating the major private collections that became the foundation of great American museums.

Free tickets available beginning November 29, 2017 at www.getty.edu/visit/cal/talks.html
Separate reservation is required for each day of the symposium Continue reading “CONF: Art Dealers, America and the International Art Market, 1880-1930 (Los Angeles, Jan 18-19, 2018)”
