CFP: Recycling Luxury Conference, Friday 5th July 2019, Christie’s, London

Deadline: 1 March 2019

The concept of luxury is associated with ideas of excess (luxus) or even worse immodesty (luxure). An infamous example involving Cleopatra dissolving a priceless pearl and swallowing it encapsulates some common associations between luxury and immorality, or luxury as intrinsically linked to the idea of waste.

CFP: Session Celebrating Female Agency in the Arts (New York, 26-27 Jun 18)

Christie’s Education Symposium 2018: Celebrating Female Agency in the Arts

Scholars across disciplines have long probed the relationship between politics and art in the public sphere in the long eighteenth century—the tumultuous, seminal historical period that saw the rise of the Enlightenment, modern systems of representative democracy, and, eventually, the Industrial Revolution. Yet, to date, scholarship of this period has largely failed to notice female artists and patrons, despite their omnipresence in public shows and frequent initiation of substantial commissions. Similarly, political history has overlooked non-royal women, despite their strong influence as the wives, mothers, and sisters of politicians.

Call for Sessions: Celebrating Female Agency in the Arts (New York, June 26-27, 2018)

Call for Sessions
Celebrating Female Agency in the Arts

Deadline July 15, 2017

Following the success of the 250-anniversary conference held in London in July 2016, Christie’s Education is organizing its second academic conference on the theme of women in the arts. The Conference will take place at Christie’s, 20 Rockefeller Plaza in New York on Tuesday June 26th and Wednesday June 27th 2018.

From Antiquity to today, women have always played a significant role in the arts and their markets.  With this call for sessions, we welcome proposals coming from a wide range of disciplines that would consider women’s diverse contributions to the arts from a transnational and transhistorical perspective. We hope that the sessions will reflect the global and historical diversity of the issues at stake.

This conference is not advocating for a separate history nor an alternative history of art and its markets, but rather we want to look at the central role played by women in the creation, development, support and preservation of the arts and, also how their contribution has changed over time.

Sessions should consider globally and throughout history women as artists, patrons and collectors of art and architecture, dealers and brokers, art historians and art critics as well as curators and preservers of culture. From the presence of women in emerging and established art centers to historical aristocratic patronage and back in time to the medieval period and antiquity we hope that the sessions will investigate a diverse range of topics.

Deadline for Session Proposals:
We encourage academics across disciplines and art professionals to submit proposals for individual sessions. Sessions will be 115 (4 x 20 minute papers) or 90 minutes (3 x 20 minute papers) in length. Please send a 250/300-word abstract to Dr. Cecily Hennessy (chennessy@christies.com) and Dr. Véronique Chagnon-Burke (vchagnon-burke@christies.edu) by July 15th 2017. We look forward to receiving your proposal.
