CFP: The Art Market and the Global South: New Perspectives and Plural Approaches – TIAMSA Conference 2019 (Lisbon, 21-22 Nov, 2019)

Our 2019 conference  is co-organized by the Institute of Art History, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, TIAMSA – The International Art Market Studies Association and TIAMSA Portugal, Spain and Brazil, in collaboration with Universidad Nebrija (Madrid) and Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (Porto Alegre, Brazil).

This conference will discuss the developments, the disruptions and new perspectives that can be observed in the current art market as seen from the Global South – a term here used to refer to emerging economies of the southern hemisphere (South America, Africa, India, South-Eastern Asia, Southern Europe, but not limited to these geographical areas) – and their contribution to the development of art markets worldwide. We will explore the Global South as a thematic frame and through different disciplinary viewpoints in order to re-think the cross-cultural and economic flows and to investigate the various local practices of the art market. Furthermore, we wish to analyze the Global South as a set of spaces and players affected by the contemporary art trade. In doing so, we particularly intend to focus on the rise of new art markets in these regions and their impact on the global art system, its history, its changing processes and its networks – but also on the circulation of art.
