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.

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.
