CONF: First Brazilian Conference of Law & Art (João Pessoa, 16-18 May, 18)

First Brazilian Conference on Law and Art_english (pdf)

Although Brazil maintains notable production and significant trade in the visual arts sector, Art Law is still understudied, under-explored and lacks diffusion in the country, unlike what has been happening for years in Europe and in the United States. The First Brazilian Conference on Law and Art has the main objective of gathering public authorities, lawyers, gallerists, artists, curators, museums, auction houses, insurance companies, conservators, scholars and students from both undergraduate and graduate programs to share and discuss legal questions related to the protection, conservation, contracts, importation and exportation, financing, insurance, taxation, tax breaks, provenance, labor and consumer affairs, authenticity, protection, financial crimes, theft, compliance and the valuation in the increasingly complex and broad contemporary market of visual arts.

Conference ANKK and RKD, Den Haag, October 18 – 20, 2018
Deadline: Apr 15, 2018

Collecting Dutch and Flemish Art in Germany

Much of Dutch and Flemish Art was acquired by German collectors, so that today there are more of these artefacts in German collections than in those of other countries. The 2018 conference of the ANKK seeks to analyse the ways in which Netherlandish art was and is collected in the German speaking countries, and how this influenced not only scholarship but also the art market.

Digital Art History between the Campus and the Community

In a 2015 essay, “Reflections on Digital Art History,” Pamela Fletcher outlined two broad methods that have come to define the emerging field of digital art history: the digitizing of art historical materials, and using “big data” for textual, spatial, and temporal analysis.  The projects Fletcher cites that have engaged in such methods – such as “Mapping Gothic France” or MoMA’s “Inventing Abstraction” webpage – are not only deeply engaging for scholars and students, Continue reading “CFP: Session at MACAART (Lincoln, 4-6 Oct 18)”
