Refugee Art Dealers in Britain: Lectures and Round Table
2 November 2019 2:30 pm£10 – £15
Sotheby’s Institute, London
Following a very successful event co-orgainzed by TIAMSA and the Courtauld Alumni Association in 2018, this afternoon symposium organised by TIAMSA and Sotheby’s Institute of Art London will explore the experiences, impact and significance of those art dealers who fled Nazi Europe and set up in the UK before or during the Second World War. While the 2018 event focused on dealers active in the old master trade, this symposium will look at those who worked with 20th century art. Their experience of dislocation changed the art world as well as the status of particular artists and artistic movements, opening up channels for the dissemination of the new trends of the 1920s and 1930s. This event will combine short papers by experts in the field and a panel discussion which will contextualize the experiences and achievements of those who lived through these dramatic times.

Speakers include Richard Aronowitz, Cherith Summers, Fran Lloyd, Sue Grayson Ford, Jutta Vinzent and Lucy Wasensteiner.
2.30pm – 7.15pm
