CFP: What does Art Market Research mean? Positioning of a Research Area in the Process of establishing itself as a Discipline (Workshop; apply by Aug 31, 2016)

German version below

Conception: Jun. Prof. Dr. Nadine Oberste-Hetbleck

An area of research that has been on the periphery for a long time is now making its mark on the discipline of art history: Art Market Research. It developed especially beginning with the research of wide-reaching well-researched areas such as the Italian Renaissance and the Dutch Golden Age and is now being carried into the present. In essence, Art Market Research examines relationships between suppliers, consumers, competitors and agents of the art market as well as their effect on the development, implementation and canonisation of visual arts both in its historical development and in its contemporary manifestation.

RECENTLY CONF: Showing-Telling-Seeing: Exhibiting South Asia in Britain 1900-Now, June 30-Jul 1, London

CONF: Showing-Telling-Seeing: Exhibiting South Asia in Britain 1900-Now

Organised by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and Asia Art Archive, in collaboration with Tate Modern.

This symposium proposes that exhibitions provide challenging and provocative sites through which to think about artistic exchanges and the two-way traffic between Britain and South Asia. It interrogates the lenses through which artistic production in South Asia have been framed in Britain, and argues that these frames have often been fashioned in colonial times, but continue to shape the reception of the art of South Asia in the contemporary moment. We seek to explore the legacies of such framings, but also take the exhibition to be a site of transaction and transformation, and potentially disturbance and challenge, to the colonialist narrative of and for the art of South Asia.

APPLY BY JULY 1 CFP: Cultural Transfer Barcelona

Call for Papers

Cultural Transfer Barcelona (Barcelona, 24-25 Nov 16), deadline: Jul 1, 2016

The advent of Barcelona as a modern, cosmopolitan, innovative metropolis, open to the world, is punctuated by two founding events: the Universal Exhibition of 1888 and, a century on, the Olympic Games of 1992. Both are key moments for the presentation and (self-) representation of the city with a transnational and global scope.

The International Symposium One Hundred Years of Cultural Transfer:
Barcelona 1888-1992 invites participants to examine, from a critical and multidisciplinary perspective, a string of cultural transfers marking the century spanning from 1888 to 1992, and opening the debate on how these transfers contributed to an interweaving between Barcelona and other Western capitals. Going beyond the privileged axis of exchanges between Barcelona and Paris, the Symposium wishes to encompass other European and American centres of reference, such as London, Vienna, Berlin, New York, Mexico City or Buenos Aires, with the aim of lifting the discussion to a transnational dimension that transcends bilateral frameworks.
