New York City, 15 February 2019, 12:30-1:30pm – Share and Connect: Databases for Art Market Studies; TIAMSA meeting at the College Art Association (CAA) Conference (Chaired by Clarissa Ricci, Iuav University of Venice and Sandra van Ginhoven, Getty Research Institute).
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. It is open to all visitors of the CAA conference.
