Our members are academics, art market experts, collectors, museum staff and students from disciplines such as economics, law, sociology, art history, history, or provenance studies. We also have distinguished institutions and associations among our members.
We believe in an inclusive, international membership base reaching out to all corners of the world – which is why we aim to keep membership fees affordable. In the first six months after its launch, TIAMSA has attracted over 150 members from 15 countries – and we are happy that the association continues to grow at a steady pace, resulting in a current membership base of >280 members (January 2020).
We are particularly happy that several distinguished institutions joined our ranks as institutional members:
Centre allemand d’histoire de l’art, Paris (France)
Fondation Beyeler, Riehen / Basel (Switzerland)
Frick Collection, Frick Art Reference Library, New York (USA)
Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles (USA)
University of Zurich – Executive Master in Art Market Studies (EMAMS), Zurich (Switzerland)
Wildenstein Plattner Institute, New York (USA)
Zentralarchiv des internationalen Kunsthandels, Cologne (Germany)
We are equally proud that two art dealers’ associations have joined us as association members so far:
Swiss Art Trading Association (also a generous sponsor of TIAMSA)
Bundesverband Deutscher Galerien und Kunsthändler e.V.
