It will address the developments, the disruptions and new perspectives that can be observed in the current art market as seen from the Global South – a term here meant to refer to emerging economies of the southern hemisphere (South America, Africa, India, South-Eastern Asia, Southern Europe, but not limited to these geographical areas) – and their contribution to the development of art markets worldwide.

Edinburgh 17-18 July 2020 – TIAMSA’s Fourth Annual Conference, ‘The Art Market and the Museum: Ethics and Aesthetics of Institutional Collecting, Display and Patronage from c.1800 to the Present’, to be held at Edinburgh University and National Galleries of Scotland

Join us in Edinburgh for what promises to be a very exciting TIAMSA 2020 conference which will consider the historic and contemporary intersections of the art market and museums. How do museums affect the art market and how do art market stakeholders, including art dealers, collectors and patrons shape museum collections and affected exhibition practices, both historically and in more recent years? Edinburgh University and the National Galleries of Scotland will provide a very stimulating setting to explore these questions and their ramifications.
