Conference – Negotiating art ǀ Dealers and museums 1855 – 2015
Negotiating art ǀ Dealers and museums 1855-2015, a two-day international conference to be held at the National Gallery, in association with the University of Manchester.
The conference has its origins in the acquisition of the Thos. Agnew & Sons archive by the National Gallery, and presents an array of experienced professionals, established scholars, and emerging researchers exploring the complex, complementary and conflicting associations between art dealers and museums. Although focused on the London and British art market in the late 19th century, papers are spread across a range of geographical areas and extend to the present time, establishing connections and contrasts between places and periods.
Friday 1 and Saturday 2 April 2016
