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.
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.
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
