ANN: TIAMSA Session „Share and Connect: Databases for Art Market Studies” at CAA New York, 15 February 2019

New York City, 15 February 2019, 12:30-1:30pm – Share and Connect: Databases for Art Market Studies; TIAMSA session at the College Art Association (CAA) Conference (Chaired by Clarissa Ricci, Iuav University of Venice and Sandra van Ginhoven, Getty Research Institute); Location: New York Hilton Midtown, 2nd floor, ‘Nassau East’

Databases and digital techniques frequently challenge current approaches to research, not least through the introduction of a new vocabulary. While this opens some exciting perspectives, the use of such tools requires careful consideration and modelling of key concepts and relationships. This ‘Share and Connect’ meeting is open both to TIAMSA scholars and other colleagues interested in the use of databases and digital techniques for art market studies who wish to share their different methodological approaches, questions and insights. The aim of the meeting is to form an international group around the use of databases in art market studies in order to expand our field of inquiry. The discussion will be based on the input from the following brief presentations:

Fiene Leunissen, Research Scholar, Duke Art, Law & Markets Initiative, Duke University: Teaching Art Markets: Data Limitations & Alternative Metrics in the South Korean Auction Market

Nadine Oberste-Hetbleck, Junior Professor for Art History and Art Market, University of Cologne: ART | GALLERY GIS | COLOGNE – A Digital Mapping Project on the ART COLOGNE (1967– 1997)

Jeffrey Taylor, MGES Program Grosland Director, Western Colorado University: Measuring the US Art Market Using Labor and Tax Data

The session is open to all visitors of the CAA conference. Please note that you will not have to purchase access to the 2019 CAA Conference in order to attend!

ANN: TIAMSA Session „The Studio as Market” at CAA New York, 13 February 2019

New York City, 13 February 2019, 8:30-10:00am – The Studio as Market (Chaired by Julie Codell, Arizona State University) – TIAMSA-Session at the CAA (College Art Association) Conference; Location: New York Hilton Midtown, 3rd floor, Grand Ballroom West

Artists’ studios have been the site of workshops, collaboration, promotion, mystery, and myth, at times considered a hallowed space, at other times a disreputable one. They have also been the places of social, political, and economic transactions that shape aesthetic values. In the studio artists self-fashioned their social status and promoted their works. They invited critics, dealers, and patrons into their studios, turning the latter into sites that combined a presumed mysterious creative energy with economic exchange while purposely misapprehending economic considerations. This session will explore how artists – facing dwindling church and aristocratic patronage from the eighteenth century on – strategically entered the “free” market by using their studios to promote and sell works in conjunction with creating marketable public identities to engage buyers and generate symbolic capital for their name and their work.

CONF: MoMA’s Twentieth-century Italian Art (New York, 12 Feb 19)

CIMA – Center for Italian Modern Art, February 12, 2019

CIMA – the Center for Italian Modern Art (NYC) is organizing the conference:

“Methodologies of Exchange: MoMA’s Twentieth-century Italian Art (1949)”.

The conference uses the 1949 Museum of Modern Art exhibition “Twentieth-century Italian Art” as a case study to examine the various methodologies or approaches taken in recent years to explore the artistic exchange between the United States and Italy in the twentieth century. By examining the history of this exhibition and the traveling exhibitions that it spawned, we will explore the reception of Italian art and artists in the US, the growth of networks and collaborations between US dealers and artists, and the role that Italy played in the idea of art-making among American postwar artists. This particular subject allows for other questions as well: How did an important institution like MoMA shape the narrative of American modernism? How did Italy help Alfred Barr and MoMA rethink a Franco-centric vision of modern art after the war? How did the American art world deal with the problematic legacy of Fascist Modernism?

This Study Day will be held at CIMA in connection with the 107th meeting of the College Art Association and the 70th anniversary of the MoMA exhibition.
