International Summer School: Art Markets: an Integrated Perspective

Inspired by the success of the two previous Art Markets Summer School held in Lyon, in June 2019, and in Antwerp-Brussels, in July 2022, a third edition of this unique research, training and networking experience will take place in July 2023, in Portugal.

Participants with an academic or professional interest in the mechanics of the art market will join European and American specialists in Art History, Economics, Sociology, Finance, and Digital Humanities. Together, they will present, share, workshop and discuss theoretical approaches, conceptual frameworks and methodological tools in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. This immersive experience will inspire and shape new interdisciplinary thinking about the emergence, history and governance of art markets around the world.


​The training is scheduled to last five days, from July 10 to 14, 2023. Participants are invited to follow the course in its entirety. It will be taught by about fifteen speakers, specialists in Economics, Finance, Economic History, Art History, Sociology, Law, and the Digital Humanities - all internationally recognized in their fields. The training will include theoretical and methodological interventions, open to confrontation and exchange of views. A certificate of attendance will be provided so that doctoral candidates can have their participation validated by their doctoral school.


The training is aimed at the entire scientific community - early-carreer professors, researchers, post-doctoral fellows, doctoral students, staff of research support. It should also be of interest for experts and professionals active in the art market. It is open to all participants from Master level onwards, preferably in a discipline related to the study of art markets: economic history, art history, economics, finance, sociology, law.


​Due to the international nature of this training, lectures and workshops will be conducted in English. We expect that the participants have the ability to understand and be understood in English, to ensure the best possible experience.
