ANN: Share and Connect: Databases for Art Market Studies; TIAMSA meeting at the College Art Association (CAA)

New York City, 15 February 2019, 12:30-1:30pm – Share and Connect: Databases for Art Market Studies; TIAMSA meeting at the College Art Association (CAA) Conference (Chaired by Clarissa Ricci, Iuav University of Venice and Sandra van Ginhoven, Getty Research Institute).

Databases and digital techniques frequently challenge current approaches to research, not least through the introduction of a new vocabulary. While this opens some exciting perspectives, the use of such tools requires careful consideration and modelling of key concepts and relationships. This ‘Share and Connect’ meeting is open both to TIAMSA scholars and other colleagues interested in the use of databases and digital techniques for art market studies who wish to share their different methodological approaches, questions and insights. The aim of the meeting is to form an international group around the use of databases in art market studies in order to expand our field of inquiry. It is open to all visitors of the CAA conference.

Submit a session proposal for CAA 2019

TIAMSA offered a number of memorable events at the past CAA conference (21-24 February 2018), notably a fascinating session organized by Julie Reiss and Véronique Chagnon-Burke and an exciting visit to the Getty Archive and the Getty Provenance Index. (See our ‘Past Events’ Page for more information: https://www.artmarketstudies.org/events-calendar/past-events/ )

The CAA 2019 conference will be held in New York (13-16 Feb 2019, Midtown Hilton) and we are already planning our attendance there. As a CAA affiliated society, TIAMSA is entitled to one academic session (1.5 hours) and one „business meeting“ (1 hour). We will also organize at least one additional event during the conference.

If you would like to propose a session, please send us a title and a short abstract (3-4 sentences) outlining your idea by April 15th 2017 to office@artmarketstudies.org. The TIAMSA Board will then select the most promising proposal, bearing in mind not only academic excellence but also a proposal’s potential interest to our members and visitors of the conference.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide travel grants; however, you may apply for travel grants through the CAA.

We would be very happy to hear from members interested in chairing a session!

With best wishes,
Veronika and Johannes
