Birmingham, Ikon Gallery and Barber Institute, 12-13 Jan 2018 – ‘Art on the Move’ Conference (supported by TIAMSA)
In the nineteenth century the circulation of works of art developed into its recognisably modern form. The forces of increasingly globalized capitalism, imperial routes and new means of transport, coupled with the growing reach of advertising and the press caused an unprecedented movement of artists, goods and materials. Larger audiences for art in newly founded museums and galleries across the world also contributed to, and benefitted from, this increased mobility of art. Nineteenth-century mobility still awaits a thorough art historical investigation. The two-day ‘Art on the Move’ Conference aims to map, examine and problematize this emerging field. It will coincide with an exhibition dedicated to the works of Birmingham born engraver, miniature portraitist and photographer Thomas Bock (c.1793–1855) at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham.
