AAMC & AAMC Foundation Provenance Webinar Series with Vanessa von Gliszczynski, curator Southeast Asia
What are the steps of research for a given work of art? How might experts approach an object at hand? This session will breathe life into provenance research by featuring speakers specifically describing how they traced ownership of a specific object. Skills covered will include visual literacy, travel, language/translation, use of database/archives, tracing sales, consultation and involvement of native communities, working in non-traditional resources/documentation, and the importance of transparency, especially in difficult situations. It will also include a conversation as to the goal of research: is it to claim ownership or to tell the story of the object, with supportive conversations to the latter.
The Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) is hosting a webinar series on provenance research on June 10, 17 and 24, 2020. Vanessa von Gliszczynski, curator Southeast Asia, will speak at the panel discussion on 10th June 2020.
