CONF: Christie’s Education Symposium – Women Art Dealers (1940-1990) curated by Véronique Chagnon-Burke and Caterina Toschi, May 17-18, 2019

The symposium analyzes the central role played by women art dealers in the creation and development of the art market between the 1940s and the 1980s. It examines the work of those women who promoted art between different countries and continents, thus developing an international market that anticipated the current global model. The two-day conference is divided into three sessions: the promotion of Modern art by women gallerists after World War II, thus establishing its estate in Neo-Avantgarde research; the women art dealers’ contribution to the birth of new markets, creating a fortune of new artistic languages like architectural drawings and video art; finally, the gradual establishment of a women art dealers’ global network which supplanted the male-dominated market’s geography.
