TIAMSA Live Book Discussions

Every year an impressive number of books dedicated to the art markets are published. It is a challenge to keep pace with this increasing flow of publications, which is why TIAMSA launched a new initiative called the “Live book discussion”.

In this format, the author presents her/his book and two scholars then discuss the book’s merits but also interact with the author to further explore its contents and the author’s approach. This is followed by a Q&A session open to all. A moderator ensures the smooth flow of the event.

Please keep an eye on this page or join our newsletter for details of our upcoming book discussions. Recordings of previous discussions may be viewed on the TIAMSA Vimeo channel.

Our next live book discussion will take place on 26 May.

Foreign Currency Volatility and the Market for French Modernist Art (Online, 26 May 2022, 12:00 noon CEST / 20:00 AEDT)

Dr David Challis will present his book, followed by a discussion with Christel Force (MET Museum) and Christopher Marshall (The University of Melbourne). As usual, the event will be moderated by Kim Oosterlinck (Université libre de Bruxelles). All attendants will be invited to join the discussion!
