Christie’s Education

Following the success of the 250-anniversary conference held in London
in July 2016, Christie’s Education is organizing its second academic
conference on the theme of women in the arts. The Conference will take
place at Christie’s, 20 Rockefeller Plaza in New York on Tuesday June
26th and Wednesday June 27th 2018.

From Antiquity to today, women have always played a significant role in
the arts and their markets.  With this call for sessions, we welcome
proposals coming from a wide range of disciplines that would consider
women’s diverse contributions to the arts from a transnational and
transhistorical perspective. We hope that the sessions will reflect the
global and historical diversity of the issues at stake.

This conference is not advocating for a separate history nor an
alternative history of art and its markets, but rather we want to look
at the central role played by women in the creation, development,
support and preservation of the arts and, also how their contribution
has changed over time.

Sessions should consider globally and throughout history women as
artists, patrons and collectors of art and architecture, dealers and
brokers, art historians and art critics as well as curators and
preservers of culture. From the presence of women in emerging and
established art centers to historical aristocratic patronage and back
in time to the medieval period and antiquity we hope that the sessions
will investigate a diverse range of topics.

Deadline for Session Proposals:
We encourage academics across disciplines and art professionals to
submit proposals for individual sessions. Sessions will be 115 (4 x 20
minute papers) or 90 minutes (3 x 20 minute papers) in length. Please
send a 250/300-word abstract to Dr. Cecily Hennessy
(chennessy@christies.com) and Dr. Véronique Chagnon-Burke
(vchagnon-burke@christies.edu) by July 15th 2017.
