CFP: 2020 Christie’s Education Conference: The Chinese Art Market, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, 26 & 27 November 2020

Christie’s Education is delighted to announce our first international academic conference in Asia which will take place in Hong Kong from 26-27 November 2020 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and run in parallel with Christie’s Hong Kong Autumn Auctions.

This conference will be the third in our International Art & the Market Series, which launched in 2016 in London with Creating Markets, Collecting Art, followed in 2018 in New York by Celebrating Female Agency in the Arts

The conference will explore the global impact of the Chinese art ecosystem from both historical and current perspectives.

With this call for sessions, we welcome proposals coming from a wide range of disciplines which consider China’s contribution to the arts from a transnational and trans-historical perspective. We encourage sessions dealing with issues of cultural exchange, artistic cross-fertilization and appropriation, the circulation of works of art, collecting networks and the economics of taste and value, as well as today’s art market.

CONF: 4th Conference on Empirical Methods in Art History and Visual Studies, Vienna, July 4-5, 2019

Over the last decade we have been observing a new trend in the humanities towards the systematic use of empirical methods. The first three Art + Science Conferences on Empirical Methods in Art History and Visual Studies in 2015, 2016 and 2017 proved that Art History and the Visual Studies are no exception to this international trend.Methods for example traditionally stemming from Psychology and Neurology or the Social and Computational Sciences are gradually implemented in art research not only to question premises of classical approaches but to tap new perspectives on our field. The incorporation of these methods also allows transcending encrusted disciplinary boundaries and fosters interdisciplinary dialogue as well as interdisciplinary connectivity.

Despite the uncontested benefit of interdisciplinary research when accessing new methodological ground, the crucial necessity to at least partly re-embed one owns work in the ancestral field remains: a goal that can only be reached, if the art sciences find common ground not only with regard to theoretical but also with respect to methodological issues within their own field. The aim of the Art + Science Conference series is to give new approaches in the art sciences a platform and to support exchange among scholars concerned with empirical approaches to art research.

The symposium aims to represent various case studies of Korean art in the West to create an overview of the state of research and methodologies in the field. It seeks to explore the trajectories of movement of Korean art in the past centuries and its reception outside of Korea. Our focus lies on the collecting practices, museum displays and cultural mediation, appropriations and uses of Korean art in the West, and on the comparative perspectives on similar processes in Korea. As the first symposium of its kind in bringing together Korean art scholars to Switzerland, it attempts to give a deeper insight into the collections of Korean art in Switzerland and other countries as well as to open a new field of public and academic interest in the study of Korea.
