Collecting and Provenance: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Jane Milosch and Nick Pearce
Provenance – tracking the origin, ownership, transfer, and movement of objects – has become somewhat more visible in recent years, spurred on by the restitution of Nazi spoliated artworks and lately human remains and cultural heritage translocated during the colonial era. But rich provenance data is relevant within a wider a range of contexts and for a plurality of audiences where there is a desire to connect with objects, histories, cultures and associated people of all kinds. Through the work of the Smithsonian Provenance Research Initiative Jane Milosch and Nick Pearce have been engaging with provenance from this broad range of perspectives which has resulted in a new book: Collecting and Provenance: A Multidisciplinary Approach, the aim of which is to present provenance as an integral part of collecting history, illuminating the social, economic, and historic contexts in which objects were created and collected. They argue that provenance relates to the history of people as well as objects and its study can reveal an often-intricate network of relationships, patterns of activity, and motivations across a range of disciplinary perspectives.

Workshop 4: Communication strategies: development, promotion and innovation
This workshop is part of the International Workshops Series “Tools for the Future: Researching Art Market Practices from Past to Present”, established in 2017 by Elisabetta Lazzaro (HKU University of the Arts Utrecht), Nathalie Moureau (Université Paul Valéry Montpellier 3) and Adriana Turpin (IESA, Paris & Society for the History of Collecting). Through individual presentations followed by group discussions, the series aims at bringing together international scholars and professionals from different disciplines, periods of study and areas of practice of the art market to confront key issues and related methodologies that can add knowledge and evidence about the structures and principals of the art market. The first workshop was on art collectors, the second one on the artist as an entrepreneur and career paths, and the third one on the formation and development of new art markets.
This fourth workshop, Communication strategies: development, promotion and innovation has been organised in collaboration with the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca, Rome. The Rome workshop will address the importance of understanding how communication strategies can be effective or not. Communication must be intended here in its broad sense of creating, delivering and diffusing artistic content, and how these processes are impacted by and impact the art market from an innovation perspective, where innovation can encompass technical as well as social innovation. The role of art and communication in the development, both cultural and economic, of particular territories is in turn important.
