TIAMSA at this year’s Art Basel, Basel, 15 June, 17

Art Basel and TIAMSA are teaming up in a round table (‘Conversation‘) entitled ‘New Rules: Is the Artworld a Mature Industry?’ TIAMSA will be represented by Olav Velthuis, TIAMSA president, who will discuss the subject with Lindsay Pollock, Bob Rennie, Adam Sheffer and Pierre Valentin; the conversation will be moderated by András Szántó. The round table will take place at this year’s Art Basel mother fair in Basel (Messeplatz 10, 4005 Basel, Switzerland). Johannes Nathan, TIAMSA Chair, will also be present.

Public/ Private | New Rules: Is the Artworld a Mature Industry?

This talk addresses the rapidly changing business environment of art. Across the artworld, established but opaque ways of doing business are increasingly seen as a hindrance, not an advantage. Governments are eager to enact regulations, investment-minded collectors and analysts are pressing for greater transparency. Information is flowing more freely: It is no longer a question of whether data becomes available, but when, where, and on whose terms. The institutional sector is also under scrutiny, as funders demand accountability and clarity about the role of private interests. How will the artworld keep up with these developments? What can be done to modernize and professionalize the market without stifling its dynamism? What are the new rules of the art economy to follow?

Lindsay Pollock, former Editor-in-Chief, Art in America, New York; Olav Velthuis, Professor, Department of Sociology at University of Amsterdam, and President, TIAMSA, Amsterdam; Adam Sheffer, Partner, Cheim & Read, and President, Art Dealers Association of America, New York; Pierre Valentin, Partner, Constantine Cannon LLP, London; Bob Rennie, Collector, Vancouver.

Moderator: András Szántó, Author and Cultural Consultant, New York.

CfS: Calling all members to submit proposals for a TIAMSA session at CAA, L.A. 2018

Calling members to submit session proposals
for A TIAMSA session
at the next CAA,
Los Angeles, 21-24 February 2018

TIAMSA was accepted as affiliated society of CAA on 19 February the College Art Association of America (CAA; collegeart.org). This entitles us to hold one session every year at the annual CAA conferences. We intend to make regular use of this opportunity, which will add to the profile of our association.

We welcome proposals concerning art market studies that are likely to resonate within the wider scholarly community. Please send your e-mail to office@artmarketstudies.org

Please include
– the proposed session title 
– a brief outline of the intended session topic (max. 150 words)
– how do you intend to draw prospective speakers (CfP/direct contact/other?)
– suggestions for possible speakers (if you already have some in mind)
– a brief CV (max. 150 words)
– we accept proposals submitted by more than one person (acting as co-chairs).
– we welcome proposals from experienced and younger colleagues alike.


NB:
CAA sessions are 90 minutes long only. Your proposal needs to take this into account.
Example 1: 4 speakers, each with a 15 minute-paper and 30 minutes for introduction and discussion.
Example 2: Round table discussion with fewer speakers and more discussion time.
Example 3: more speakers with shorter papers, etc.
We are open to other suggestions.

Speakers actively participating at CAA conferences as session chairs or speakers have to be CAA members (if only for the year in which they participate) and that travel grants are difficult to obtain for this event.

Proposals should be submitted no later than 19 March 2017 to office@artmarketstudies.org.
We will inform applicant(s) of the results of our decision by the end of March. TIAMSA will have to submit the chosen session theme to CAA in early April, so we are running on a tight schedule.

Successful candidate(s) will be responsible for organizing the ensuing steps (e.g. drafting a call for papers; submitting the necessary information to CAA; finding speakers and making sure they submit the necessary information to CAA; etc.).

You have to be an active TIAMSA member in order to submit your proposal.

We are much looking forward to hearing from all interested members!

With very best wishes,
Your TIAMSA Board

Symposium: Art as Commodity – Kunst wird Ware, April 27, Hamburg

Symposium zur Ausstellung „Kunst wird Ware. Die Geburt des Kunstmarktes im Goldenen Zeitalter der Niederlande“

27. April 2017, 10 bis 17.30 Uhr

Bucerius Kunst Forum, Rathausmarkt 2, 20095 Hamburg

Ridiculous prices, greedy traders, exaggerated artists: the adverse impact of today’s art market seems ubiquitous. And yet the trade is a form of social engagement with art and thus an essential condition of its existence. Talk about art and art markets originated long before there were museums. The birthplace of art trade was the Netherlands of the 17th century. While commissions by nobility and the church stagnated, the increasingly wealthy bourgeoisie was able to afford oil paintings for the first time. Following the demands of the new market, the motifs as well as the techniques changed. Histories and mythological scenes were still life, landscapes and genre images. Prices ranged from a few guilders to vast sums.

This symposium [held in German] sets the scene for the exhibition, September 23, 2017 – Jan 7, 2018.
Free tickets for students are available at BKF counter in advance, but are limited.
