CFP: Novecento Transnazionale No. 3: Transnational perspectives and art history

Novecento Transnazionale

Deadline: Sep 30, 2018

The third issue of Novecento Transnazionale will present a selection of articles focusing on Transnational perspectives and art history. This was born out of the idea that during the last decades, and particularly during the last thirty years, a revision of the systems of analysis, construction and narration of art history was necessary vis-à-vis a world increasingly characterized by migrations, the overcoming of national states and the intertwining of culture, history and identity.

CONF: 1st Symposium on Art Systemic Relations ART BEYOND ART (Porto Alegre, April 8-10, 2018)

1st Symposium on Art Systemic Relations
8-10 April
Goethe Institut, Porto Alegre, Brazil

Arte Além da Arte


For information on the TIAMSA Subcommittee Art Market and Collecting in the European Southern Countries and Brazil see below and here.

From production to access, the visual arts field has changed substantially in the last decades, specially considering the performances of agents and institutions, which together act in the creation of legitimating structures and in the definition of what art is or not. However, the logic of production, circulation, legitimation and consumption
is also associated with spheres other than those specific to the artistic context, highlighting the connections inherent in the development of the art system.

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.

CFP: Shaping New Tastes in a Global Perspective (Florence, 31 May -1 Jun 17)

The Age of Exploration: Shaping New Tastes in a Global Perspective.

During the Early Modern period, global trade routes determined a new idea of market and exchanges. The traditional idea of European expansion has been questioned over the last few decades, and exchanges between different cultures have been re-considered analysing interactions in a multifaceted way. This session wishes to explore, not only the perception and reception of new products on the European market, but also their agency in facilitating the intersection between different cultures, by looking at:
