MOTION: Transformation. 35th International Art History Congress

Type: Conferences & Symposia [View all]
Posted by: CIHA Italy
Deadline: Sun, September 1st, 2019

After more than forty years, CIHA’s International Art History Congress (Comité International d’Histoire de l’Art) returns to Firenze, Italy from September 1st to September 6th, 2019.

The first part of the 35th CIHA International Congress, “MOTION: Transformation”,  will be held for the first time in two different countries within a two-year period. The second part of the Congress, entitled “MOTION: Migrations”, will take place in São Paulo, Brazil in September 2020.

The MOTION congress intends to launch an extraordinary trans-cultural debate on one of the most important issues in global culture: the Movement, based on two of its most important aspects, Transformation and Migration.

The first part of the congress, organised by CIHA Italia in collaboration with the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz-Max-Planck-Institut, will take place in Firenze Fiera (Firenze’s fair district) in the halls of Villa Vittoria able to accomodate almost one thousand expected participants and in some of the city’s most prestigious historical buildings including Palazzo Vecchio.
This event will be held thanks to the contribution of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze, with the support of the Los Angeles Getty Foundation and the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz-Max-Planck-Institut. Furthermore, it’s been acknowledged by the MiBAC (Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali - Ministry of Heritage and Cultural Activities), the City of Firenze, the Metropolitan City, University of Firenze, Firenze’s Chamber of Commerce and Regione Toscana.

The extensive program of the study sessions will include about one hundred and twenty speeches by experts from all over the world. There will be events open to the public and lectiones magistrales, such as the one held by the Indian art history historian Kavita Singh at Palazzo Vecchio as well as visits to major and minor museums and collections throughout Firenze. All itineraries will be linked to the congress, thanks to the special collaboration of the administrations of the various museums and organisations involved.
