We are pleased to invite you to participate in the First International Workshop The Art Collector, organised by University Paul Valéry Montpellier 3 on June 8-9, 2018 and part of the International Workshops Series “Tools for the Future: Researching Art Market Practices from Past to Present”, jointly organised by ART-Dev University Paul Valéry Montpellier 3, Creative Economy-HKU University of the Arts Utrecht and IESA & Institute of Historical Research, London.

This is the first of a series of three international workshops aimed at bringing together scholars from different disciplines and areas of study of the art market, to confront issues in the history of the art market with those of contemporary practice, and to shed light on common patterns and differences, with a focus on their strategic impact on the market. The next two workshops will be on the emerging art market, and entrepreneurship and new business models in the art market respectively.

Please submit your abstract proposal of about 300 words, plus your bio, to by April 1, 2018. Notification of acceptance will be sent by April 15, 2018.
