To celebrate the annual conference of the College Art Association held in New York City this year, Christie’s Education and The International Art Market Studies Association (TIAMSA) cordially invite you to a reception on Thursday, February 14th 2019, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
TIAMSA supports the understanding and study of art markets of all periods and geographic areas and encourages research by providing a platform for networking, gatherings and information exchange open to scholars, students and professionals alike.
New York City, 15 February 2019, 12:30-1:30pm – Share and Connect: Databases for Art Market Studies; TIAMSA session at the College Art Association (CAA) Conference (Chaired by Clarissa Ricci, Iuav University of Venice and Sandra van Ginhoven, Getty Research Institute); Location: New York Hilton Midtown, 2nd floor, ‘Nassau East’
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. The discussion will be based on the input from the following brief presentations:
Fiene Leunissen, Research Scholar, Duke Art, Law & Markets Initiative, Duke University: Teaching Art Markets: Data Limitations & Alternative Metrics in the South Korean Auction Market
Nadine Oberste-Hetbleck, Junior Professor for Art History and Art Market, University of Cologne: ART | GALLERY GIS | COLOGNE – A Digital Mapping Project on the ART COLOGNE (1967– 1997)
Jeffrey Taylor, MGES Program Grosland Director, Western Colorado University: Measuring the US Art Market Using Labor and Tax Data
The session is open to all visitors of the CAA conference. Please note that you will not have to purchase access to the 2019 CAA Conference in order to attend!
New York City, 13 February 2019, 8:30-10:00am – The Studio as Market (Chaired by Julie Codell, Arizona State University) – TIAMSA-Session at the CAA (College Art Association) Conference; Location: New York Hilton Midtown, 3rd floor, Grand Ballroom West
have been the site of workshops, collaboration, promotion, mystery, and
myth, at times considered a hallowed space, at other times a
disreputable one. They have also been the places of social, political,
and economic transactions that shape aesthetic values. In the studio
artists self-fashioned their social status and promoted their works.
They invited critics, dealers, and patrons into their studios, turning
the latter into sites that combined a presumed mysterious creative
energy with economic exchange while purposely misapprehending economic
considerations. This session will explore how artists – facing dwindling
church and aristocratic patronage from the eighteenth century on –
strategically entered the “free” market by using their studios to
promote and sell works in conjunction with creating marketable public
identities to engage buyers and generate symbolic capital for their name
and their work.

The art world and the market have traditionally been the domain of the elites and have thrived on exclusivity. However, the art world has arguably become much more democratic in recent years thanks to the digital revolution, the inclusion of emerging economies in the world art market system, and the vastly improved access to art and information. The price histories of works of art can nowadays easily be reconstructed using online databases; the threshold for art buying is significantly lowered by online sales platforms; and new buyers in emerging economies are making the art market much less Western-oriented. Moreover, an ever broader range of artworks in different price categories has put (fine) art within reach of the middle classes across the globe. At the same time, art institutions such as museums are under tremendous pressure to be less exclusive. Some of these democratizing tendencies are of course not new. For instance, publishing houses in Europe started disseminating prints on a massive scale already in the sixteenth century, thereby enabling larger segments of the population to acquire images.
