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.

ANN: Workshop Plunder of Art and Heritage in Belgium during the Second World War – 14 juin 2019

Il y a peu, Patricia Grimsted, professeure américaine spécialiste du pillage des œuvres d’art et du patrimoine par les nazis en Europe durant  la Seconde Guerre mondiale, a pris contact avec un certain nombre de chercheurs belges concernant la poursuite de projets de recherche et de publications en cours.

http://www.cegesoma.be/cms/index_fr.php?article=3920&pag0nbr=95&pagofs=0

En réponse à cette demande, l’Amsab-ISH – en coopération avec le CegeSoma  – a récemment lancé un projet de volontariat coordonné par Michel Vermote.

Plusieurs chercheurs de divers centres de recherche en Belgique ont été impliqués dans cette recherche.

Le CegeSoma et l’Amsab-ISH organisent un workshop à Bruxelles le 14 juin 2019 pour faire le point sur les recherches passées, les avancées récentes et évaluer les possibilités de perspectives futures.

La rencontre débutera par une présentation des initiatives récentes de Patricia Grimsted. Les chercheurs présents seront ensuite invités à faire part de leurs commentaires et suggestions.

Undervalued and Underpaid/Disposable and Dispossessed: Perspectives on Care, Labour, and Precarity

The combination of “care” and precarity has allowed for the formation of an underpaid and disposable workforce. Understood as doing it for the love of the job, undervalued workers are forced to comply to exploitative conditions. This is particularly visible in the arts and in academia, and disproportionally impacts women. While this appears to be a novel condition, a global perspective shows that precariousness has historically been the norm.
