CFP: The Art Market Dictionary

The Art Market Dictionary

http://www.artmarketdictionary.com/

The Art Market Dictionary (AMD) is the first reference work providing encompassing information on commercial art galleries, dealers, auction houses, fairs and advisers in Europe, the USA and Canada in the 20th and 21st centuries. Its c. 5,000 entries present basic data, overviews of company / individual histories and networks, information about artists exhibited / represented, bibliographies and archival information. Due to appear in 2019, the AMD will be published as an online searchable database and in print.

Written by an established international network of hundreds of authors, the AMD is edited by Johannes Nathan together with fourteen international Section Editors and a dedicated editorial team at De Gruyter Publishers, Berlin. The AMD is also supported by a distinguished international advisory board and a number of specialized institutions such as the Getty Research Institute, the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte, or the Archives of American Art.

Thanks to fantastic support from authors and institutions worldwide, we will soon accomplish the remaining steps and are now calling scholars and students who may have been unaware of the AMD. We are currently particularly focused on North American, Italian, French, Netherlandish, and Belgian subjects. However, authors with expertise in other areas are also welcome to send inquiries as a few further entries are still unassigned. We are also keen to get in contact with authors who may be willing to write several entries on selected areas.

Authors’ remuneration depends on the number of entries they write. If you would like to request more information or to contribute, please visit the AMD’s website at artmarketdictionary.info or contact Emily Evans, AMD Editor: e.evans@artmarketdictionary.info

JOB: Research Associate / Postdoc, LMU Munich (apply by May 1, 2017)

Job @ METROMOD, Relocating Modernism: Global Metropolises, Modern Art and Exile, an ERC funded project at the Institute for Art History of the LMU Munich

Salary Range: 13 TV-L
Hours: Full Time
Duration: 3 years, with the option of up to additional 20 months (until 5/2022)

LMU is recognized as one of Europe’s premier academic and research institutions. The University is situated at the heart of Munich.

Job Description
Applications are sought for a Research Associate/Postdoc (Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter/in) on the new European Research Council funded project “METROMOD: Relocating Modernism: Global Metropolises, Modern Art and Exile” led by Professor Dr. Burcu Dogramaci and based at the LMU Institute for Art History. Applications from the disciplines of art history, architectural history, urban history, planning history or related research fields are welcome.
We are offering one three-year post-doctoral position starting in September 2017 at the earliest. After a positive evaluation the contract can be extended for up to 20 months (until May 2022 maximum).

The Project
Breaking new ground, METROMOD proposes a rewriting of modern art history as a history of global interconnections, spurred by migration movements and rooted in cities. Revising the historiography of modern art, which still continues to be dominated by the hegemonic and normative narratives of (Western) European Modernism and ignores the significance of exile movements, METROMOD conceptualizes art history as a result of interrelations and negotiations in global contact zones, unstable flows, transformations and crises. The conceptual triangle of modernism, migration and the metropolis forms the foundation of an innovative comparative, interdisciplinary methodology. In its analysis, METROMOD focuses on the first half of the 20th century. During this era the modern movement emerged as a paradigm in art and architecture, and rapid urbanization took place globally; thousands of persecuted European modern artists fled their homes, re-establishing their practices in metropolises across the world. Reflecting both the geographical extent of these exile movements and their local urban impact METROMOD examines 6 key migrant destinations—the global cities of Buenos Aires, New York, London, Istanbul, Mumbai (ehemals Bombay) und Shanghai—following three main objectives: 1. to explore transformations in urban topographies, identifying artistic contact zones and places of transcultural art production; 2. to investigate networks of exiled and local artists as well as collaborative projects and exhibitions; and 3. to analyse art publications and discourse generated in centres of exile. Digital mapping will locate sites of artistic migration in the cities and demonstrate linkages between transforming metropolises and flows of people and objects around the world.
