Publishers Lund Humphries and Artifex Press are co-hosting a one-day international symposium on the importance, challenges and practicalities of compiling a catalogue raisonné, including the new publishing options afforded by digital technology. Whether you are a researcher, an artist, an artist’s estate, a gallery or a collector, this event will be essential in providing insight into the catalogue raisonné process from international experts with experience of a wide range of different kinds of projects, including catalogues of contemporary practices such as video and installation.

Topics covered will include:

  • how to go about setting up a catalogue raisonné project;
  • funding and authentication issues;
  • how to collaborate with a living artist or an artist's estate;
  • an exploration of research techniques and the editorial challenges of the process itself; 
  • the options for publishing your catalogue raisonné. 

Many of the sessions will take the form of round-table discussions to encourage debate and allow attendees plenty of opportunity to raise any questions or concerns they have about the process.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dr David Anfam (author, Mark Rothko: The Works on Canvas, Yale University Press, 1998); 
  • Lindsay Aveilhé (editor, Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné);
  • Dr Lee Beard (editor, Ben Nicholson: Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings & Carved Reliefs);
  • Susan Cooke (Director of Programming, the US Catalogue Raisonné Scholars Association, and Associate Director of David Smith Sculptures: A Catalogue Raisonné); 
  • James Rawlin (Independent advisor and curator, formerly Head of Modern and Post-war British Art at Sotheby's)
  • Karen Sanig (Head of Art Law, Mishcon de Reya)
  • Sarah Whitfield (editor, William Scott: Catalogue Raisonné of Oil Paintings, Thames & Hudson, 2013).

The day will be chaired by art historian Dr Nicholas Tromans (curator of Watts Gallery).
