New York City, 15 February 2019, 12:30-1:30pm – Share and Connect: Databases for Art Market Studies; TIAMSA session at the College Art Association (CAA) Conference (Chaired by Clarissa Ricci, Iuav University of Venice and Sandra van Ginhoven, Getty Research Institute); Location: New York Hilton Midtown, 2nd floor, ‘Nassau East’

Databases and digital techniques frequently challenge current approaches to research, not least through the introduction of a new vocabulary. While this opens some exciting perspectives, the use of such tools requires careful consideration and modelling of key concepts and relationships. This ‘Share and Connect’ meeting is open both to TIAMSA scholars and other colleagues interested in the use of databases and digital techniques for art market studies who wish to share their different methodological approaches, questions and insights. The aim of the meeting is to form an international group around the use of databases in art market studies in order to expand our field of inquiry. The discussion will be based on the input from the following brief presentations:
Fiene Leunissen, Research Scholar, Duke Art, Law & Markets Initiative, Duke University: Teaching Art Markets: Data Limitations & Alternative Metrics in the South Korean Auction Market
– Nadine Oberste-Hetbleck, Junior Professor for Art History and Art Market, University of Cologne: ART | GALLERY GIS | COLOGNE – A Digital Mapping Project on the ART COLOGNE (1967– 1997)
– Jeffrey Taylor, MGES Program Grosland Director, Western Colorado University: Measuring the US Art Market Using Labor and Tax Data
The session is open to all visitors of the CAA conference. Please note that you will not have to purchase access to the 2019 CAA Conference in order to attend!

Lisbon, 20-21 November 2019 – TIAMSA’s Third Annual Conference on “The Art Market and the Global South: New Perspectives and Plural Approaches” at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, 21-22 November 2019

Our 2019 conference, hosted by the Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon), is co-organized by the Institute of Art History, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, TIAMSA – The International Art Market Studies Association and the TIAMSA Subcommittee Art Market and Collecting: Portugal, Spain and Brazil, Universidad Nebrija (Madrid) and Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (Porto Alegre, Brazil). 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. For the call for papers (closes 31 January 2019) visit the conference website.
