CONF: Co-Constituting the Global (Berlin, 22 Jun 18)

Co-Constituting the Global

ICI Berlin
Christinenstraße 18-19, Haus 8
June 22, 2018
3:00 -9:00 p.m.

Public part of the 2-day working session programme of Global Asia / Pacific Art Exchange (GAX) 2018 in Berlin

Co-constituting the Global addresses the lived entanglements of the global that are not adequately theorized by notions of the global and the local, which bifurcate experiences that are necessarily co-constituting. It will take up the question of how artworks, artists, cultural producers, art historians, historians, and theorists who simultaneously exist on multiple and intertwining scales, co-constitute the global in relation with one another through meaning making/world-making processes of (critical) interconnecting, social networks, transnational/transcultural historiography, the circulation of objects, and imagined communities.

Deadline: Jun 14, 2018

The symposium « WAS (Women Artists Shows·Salons·Societies) : collective exhibitions of women artists in the 1970s in Europe and North America » organized by the  research group Artl@s (École normale supérieure, PSL, Labex TransferS) and the Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions (AWARE), with the collaboration of Terra Foundation for American Art, is the second meeting of a research project focusing on group exhibitions of women artists, following the inaugural conference that took place in December 2017 at the Galeries Nationales du Jeu de Paume in Paris.

The ambition of the project is to build a descriptive and analytical catalogue of these exhibitions from the end of the 19th to the end of the 20th century and to start reflecting on their specific history, through the study of the evolution of the social, cultural, and institutional conditions that permitted or made them necessary through the analysis of the various levels of mediation and organisation at work in these shows, or also through the examination of their symbolical functioning and critical response.

CONF: Markets and their Agents – Basel 06/18

Arbeitskreis für spätmittelalterliche Wirtschaftsgeschichte
Hirschgässlein 21, 4051 Basel

Deadline: 11.06.2018

Markets and the agents who shaped and created them are the subject of the 6th annual conference of the research group on premodern economic history. Markets feature prominently in recent research. Discussions cover the questions, for example, how a market can be grasp as a place, an event or a mechanism of exchange, or whether premodern economies have just hosted markets or if some of them can even be regarded as market economies.

The conference in Basel will now turn to the agents who forged and connected markets. Exchange was done between persons and with the help of persons: Artisans, retailers and poor people tried to better their living conditions by engaging on the market, merchants interconnected different markets, urban personnel (such as brokers, men working at the public scales, or the town council as a whole) regulated and facilitated exchange.

CFP: Sessions at RSA, A Matter of Access (Toronto, 17-19 Mar 19)

Deadline: Jun 15, 2018

Organisers: Susan Bracken, Andrea M. Gáldy, Adriana Turpin (International Forum Collecting & Display)

Since its foundation in 2004, the international forum Collecting & Display has investigated numerous aspects of both collections and collectors. This type of activity has taken place at our own conferences, which resulted in a number of publications. We have also participated in meetings organised by other societies.

For the 2019 annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America we are proposing three inter-related panels, which would examine the question of access to the collection from different perspectives. This session proposes to extend the discussion of the nature and pertinence of collections by focusing on the spaces in which they were displayed and how access to those spaces was controlled. By examining how collections were displayed, used and presented and who had access to these spaces, we hope to develop a deeper understanding of the meaning of the collection to its owner and its significance to contemporaries.
