CONF: Objects of Exchange: Art and Economic Encounters (Paris, 7-8 Sep 17)

International Symposium
Institut National d’Histoire de l’art (INHA)
Paris, 07. – 08.09.2017

Org. Alexander Alberro (Columbia University), Sophie Cras (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne)

Exchange is classically described by economists as a phenomenon of equalization of values within a given system. When heterogeneous orders of economic rationalities meet, material objects and practices come to embody the paradoxes of dissonant exchange. This symposium aims to explore how artifacts and artistic practices have materialized ruptures within, and encounters between, economic systems in the modern and contemporary period.

FIT Art Market Panel: The Map Is Not The Territory, 9 Feb, NY

The Map is Not the Territory: Globalism in the New York Art World  will explore the way global contemporary art — including work from previously overlooked regions — is presented in institutional and commercial settings.

Museum exhibitions and acquisitions, academic scholarship and art criticism, and gallery and auction house sales increasingly reflect an expanded geography. What challenges and opportunities does this new global consciousness present?
