Migration of artists and architects (Riga, 26-28 Sep 19)

Riga, Art Academy of Latvia, September 26 - 28, 2019

THE MIGRATION OF ARTISTS AND ARCHITECTS IN CENTRAL AND NORTHERN EUROPE. 1560–1900

The aim of the conference is to explore research and interpretative problems of the intertwined processes of art and historical migration of artists and architects in Central and Northern Europe. Still in recent past, these processes were studied by some national institutions of art and culture as either local and individual cases or a secondary issue in the context of other thematic researches, not as a Europe-wide phenomenon of a certain epoch. In the last decades, in-depth studies of artists’ and architects’ migration in Central and Northern Europe during the early modern period have emerged. Activities and significance of so far little-known artists and workshops have been recognised, replacing a narrow, local view with wider contextual approaches. Building a broader, interconnected informational network creates an additional instrument for art-historical exploration that allows seeing cultural processes of a particular epoch from an expanded perspective and obtaining new conclusions from various aspects.
The conference will focus on a broad spectrum of topics related to the artistic and architectural heritage of the modern period, its masters, consumers, cultural agents as well as routes of export and trade of cultural goods. Especially welcome are latest studies and conclusions about the art market and export of the period, structure and capacity of masters’ workshops, artists’ migration routes and models in the European context.
