CONF: Art Dealers, America and the Art Market (Los Angeles, 18-19 Jan 18)

Los Angeles, CA
The Getty, 1200 Getty Center Drive
January 18 – 19, 2018

Art Dealers, America and the International Art Market, 1880-1930


The Getty Research Institute presents a symposium on the role of international art dealers in creating the collections, museums, and intellectual culture of the American art world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Bringing together rich archival resources from the Getty Research Institute and peer institutions, and capitalizing on new methodologies made possible by the extraordinary quantity of information contained in the documentary record, this symposium illuminates the ways in which art dealers contributed to making America a prominent arena in the international art market, and their role in creating the major private collections that became the foundation of great American museums.

CFP: The Global Knowledge of Economic Inequality (London, 11/18)

The Measurement of Income and Wealth Distribution since 1945.

German Historical Institute London
15.11.2018-17.11.2018, London
Deadline: 28.02.2018

Economic inequality has become one of the most contentious political topics of our time, and statistics on income and wealth disparities have come to play an increasingly important role in modern political culture, influencing public debates about distributional questions, societal self-descriptions and perceptions of other societies. Global knowledge on economic inequality and poverty evolved incrementally, with important spurts occurring in the 1960s/1970s and then again during the 1990s/2000s. The first initiatives towards an international standardisation of income and wealth statistics were launched by the UN and the OECD during the 1960s/70s, but made only slow progress. This contributed to delaying the debate about global inequality, which had long been confined to measures like GDP per capita, while comparisons in terms of personal income have only recently been possible since more data has become available. Both these debates and the underlying statistics have a history that is not yet fully understood.

Auditorium du Jeu de Paume
Niveau -1,
1 place de la Concorde, Paris
December 8 – 09, 2017

The symposium «WAS (Women Artists Shows·Salons·Societies) : expositions collectives d’artistes femmes 1876-1976» organized by the research laboratory Artl@s (École normale supérieure, PSL, Labex TransferS) and by AWARE, with the collaboration of Jeu de Paume, will launch a research project focusing on group exhibitions of women artists.
