CONF: The Formation and Development of New Markets (London, 30-31 May 19)

Tools for the Future: The Formation and Development of New Markets

As the art market in Europe has developed, there have been many instances where new areas of collecting have emerged onto the market, very often reaching record-breaking prices. This workshop focuses on examples of this type of new market, whether in the primary or secondary sector, the aim being to analyse and understand the mechanisms by which a particular ‘product’ enters the market, gains authority and thus becomes collectable. In studying the evolution of these markets, the complex relationships between the different agents interacting with each other to create, support and sustain the taste or fashion for these works provide evidence of how art markets function, whether today or in the past. Papers examine the processes by which new markets are validated and question whether this is a necessary part of acceptance and stability, or whether in the contemporary art market, this is no longer necessary; another question that links past and present markets is the question of investment and whether it a factor in creating new markets. Underpinning many of these questions lies the issue of information and how important is accessibility to that information in the market.

CFP: Studies in the History of Collecting & Art Markets

Call for manuscripts

Brill’s “Studies in the History of Collecting & Art Markets” is a peer-reviewed book series dedicated to original scholarship on the social, cultural, and economic mechanisms underlying the circulation of art. Over the last two decades interest in the formation, display, and dissolution of art collections increased tremendously; art markets, trade routes, and dealer networks became a rich field of interdisciplinary inquiry. Scholarship brought forth a lot of information about the flamboyant personalities to whom the possession of art was a lifestyle; regarding the “social life of things”, i.e. the provenance of individual artworks, many research gaps could be closed.
This shift in scholarly attention from the production side to the consumption side of the art world is also reflected in the emergence of specialized post-graduate courses offered by a number of institutions internationally, as well as an ever-increasing stream of exhibitions, conferences, and publications devoted to the subject. Brill’s book series accommodates scholarly monographs, collections of essays, conference proceedings, and works of reference that engage in the broadly defined topic of art markets and collecting practices throughout history.
