TIAMSA at Art Basel: Newspaper Coverage in Il Sole 24 Ore

The conversation co-organized by TIAMSA and Art Basel in June was the subject of an extensive, very positive newspaper article in the Milanese daily “Il Sole 24 Ore”, written by Silvia Simoncelli (25 June 2017, no. 768, p. 20).
The article is available for TIAMSA members in the Members Only area of our website.

CONF: Objects of Exchange: Art and Economic Encounters (Paris, 7-8 Sep 17)

International Symposium
Institut National d’Histoire de l’art (INHA)
Paris, 07. – 08.09.2017

Org. Alexander Alberro (Columbia University), Sophie Cras (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne)

Exchange is classically described by economists as a phenomenon of equalization of values within a given system. When heterogeneous orders of economic rationalities meet, material objects and practices come to embody the paradoxes of dissonant exchange. This symposium aims to explore how artifacts and artistic practices have materialized ruptures within, and encounters between, economic systems in the modern and contemporary period.
