Christie’s Education 2019 Symposium: Women Art Dealers (1940-1990)

 AWAD is pleased to announce that Founder and Ceo, Susan J Mumford will be participating in a roundtable at Christie’s Education 2019 Symposium, Women Art Dealers (1940-1980). The symposia, taking place May 17th – 18th in NYC, will discuss the important role played by women art dealers in the creation and development of the international art market between the 1940s and the 1980s.

Véronique Chagnon-Burke, Academic Director, Christie’s Education, New York said: “Women art dealers have played a central role in the development of modern art. After World War II an increasing number of women in Europe and the USA risked supporting art that few other art dealers would have taken a chance on. One of the aims of our symposium is to bring to light the careers of such women.”

The symposium analyzes the central role played by women art dealers in the creation and development of the art market between the 1940s and the 1980s. It examines the work of those women who promoted art between different countries and continents, thus developing an international market that anticipated the current global model. The conference is divided into three sessions: the promotion of Modern art by women gallerists after World War II, thus establishing its estate in Neo-Avantgarde research; the women art dealers’ contribution to the birth of new markets, creating a fortune of new artistic languages like architectural drawings and video art; finally, the gradual establishment of a women art dealers’ global network which supplanted the male- dominated market’s geography.

This conference is intended for art historians and art professionals focused on modern and contemporary art and history of art dealing, as well as for those interested in the role of women in the art world in the twentieth century.
