The Burlington Magazine and Sotheby’s Institue of Art, 1 February 2013; call for papers deadline 30 September 2012
The Burlington Magazine is one of Britain’s oldest monthly art-historical publications. Founded in 1903 by a group of art writers that included Robert Dell, Roger Fry, Bernard Berenson and Herbert Horne, its aim was to cover all aspects of the fine and decorative arts, to combine scholarship with critical insight and to treat the art of the present with the same seriousness as the art of the past. Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London was founded by Sotheby’s auction house in 1969. It is now an independent not-for-profit institute and offers six MA programmes across a range of visual art disciplines and art business, together with semester and summer courses. These are validated by the University of Manchester with whom there is also a joint PhD programme. Research and teaching at Sotheby’s Institute focuses on the art work and its context within the framework of the art world and market.
The aim of this one-day joint conference is to explore how the international press, via art-historical writing and criticism in magazines and journals, has intersected with the reception and understanding of art, collecting, the art market and the teaching of art history. Preference will be given to submissions based on art publications from the twentieth century, although proposals outside of this time period will be considered.

This event with David Briers, Anthony Davies and Jo Melvin will discuss art magazines in the 1960s and 1970s (complimenting the United Enemies exhibition currently running at the Henry Moore Institute) as a crucial site for the circulation of ideas about sculpture, as vehicles that used their pages as sites for wrestling with the problems of sculpture in the 1960s and 1970s. This is no charge for this event but booking is essential as places are limited. Please contact Kirstie Gregory - email@example.com
