TIAMSA 2021 Conference: The Art Market and the Museum (online: University of Edinburgh / National Galleries of Scotland, 6 / 7 May, 3 June, 15 / 16 July 2021) TIAMSA cordially invites you to its 2021 conference whose theme is the historic and contemporary intersections of the art market and museums. The conference will consider how art market stakeholders, including art dealers, collectors and patrons have, both historically and in more recent years, shaped museum collections and influenced exhibition practices. This conference seeks to bridge the gap between academic study, the global art market, and professional museum practice, while providing inspiration for attendees to explore new research pathways. The interdisciplinary approach of the program encourages creative, cross-network conversations and the development of new approaches and actionable practices surrounding the intersection of the art market, the museums and academia. The conference will offer a unique opportunity for scholars, students, institutional professionals and commercial contributors from around the world to meet and tackle some of the most pressing questions facing the art and cultural sectors today.
