Networks, Museums and Collections. Surrealism in the United States

27-29 November 2017
Before June, 30, 2017

Centre Allemand d’Histoire de l’Art
45, rue des Petits Champs
75001 Paris
Metro: Pyramides (lines 7 & 14)

The conference Networks, Museums and Collections. Surrealism in the United States will bring both these complex networks and the reception of surrealism in America into academic focus. Who – collectors, critics, dealers, galleries, and other types of mediating agents – supported the artists in the Surrealist orbit, in what ways and why? What more can be learned about high profile collectors such as the Arensbergs in Los Angeles or Peggy Guggenheim in New York? Compared to their peers in Europe, did artists in the United States use similarly spectacular strategies of publicity and mediation?

Abstracts of 300 words are to be sent before 30 June 2017 in English, French or German, along with a CV to: Julia Drost (jdrost@dfk-paris.org); Fabrice Flahutez (flahutez@gmail.com), Anne Helmreich (A.Helmreich@tcu.edu), Susan Power (susanlpower75@gmail.com) and Martin Schieder (schieder@uni-leipzig.de).
