Season’s Greetings!

Dear Members and Subscribers to the TIAMSA Blog,

2016 has brought us very exciting months. We launched TIAMSA in July, we have since been joined by almost 140 members from fifteen countries, our board consists of well-known scholars from six countries, and we are in the midst of preparing several major events for 2017, including

  • a roundtable discussion at Art Basel and
  • our conference in London in July!

More information for members to follow after Christmas in our newsletter. Not a member? Sign up here.

At this point of the year we would like to thank you, our members, for your trust and enthusiasm! We are also grateful to our board and the four colleagues who already support our board while awaiting confirmation of their nomination at our annual general meeting in London in July:

Kim Oosterlinck, Université Libre de Bruxelles (Liaison-Officer, Economics)

Iain Robertson, Sotheby’s Institute London (Journal Officer)

Olav Velthuis, Universiteit Amsterdam (President)

Filip Vermeylen, University of Rotterdam (Sub-Committee Officer)

A very warm welcome to them – and to all new members who have joined us since our last newsletter! If you would like to know more about our new board members, please visit

Our Season’s Greetings come with the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center, reminding you of our upcoming TIAMSA gathering in New York during CAA week: It will be held on

February 16th at Christie’s Education, Rockefeller Center, NYC!

The gathering will be open to TIAMSA members and those who are seriously interested in taking up membership. Do join us if you can – and stay tuned for further news.

To all of you our very best wishes for a good holiday and a happy, prosperous New Year!

Yours Veronika, Johannes and the TIAMSA Board
