publishing issues; ethics and conflicts of interest; procedures and
process of writing a catalogue raisonne; responsibitilies to/ working
with the public & field, etc. The edited conference proceedings will
be published as a special double-issue of IFAR Journal sometime next

In an effort to begin gathering data about catalogues raisonnes, IFAR
mailed a questionnaire this summer to a couple of hundred current &
past authors/ sponsors of catalogues raisonnes. It is currently
collating the responses. If any ffdys who should have received a
questionnaire, didn't, they can send me an email (or fax IFAR at
(212) 291-8794 with their full name, mailing address and phone
number, and I'll send it. Sharon Flescher Executive Director, IFAR

"IFAR Evening" in New York: November 28th. Francis O'Connor, co-
author of the Jackson Pollock catalogue raisonne, and Helen A.
Harrison, Director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center,
will talk on "Jackson Pollock's Studio Floor: Uncovering the
Secrets." In contrast to our conferences, IFAR Evenings are informal
slide talks followed by q&a and a reception. In this case, the
speakers will also show videotapes of the restoration (the
uncovering) of Jackson Pollock's studio floor in 1988. These tapes
have never been shown publicly before, and the talk itself was
commissioned by IFAR. People can get more information and a
reservation form on our Web site: <>
. Advance reservations are necessary.
