Clark Collaborations

The Research and Academic Program often collaborates wtih several other institutions by mounting joint seminars that address many of the crucial questions confronting the field of art history that are of interest to both their scholars and the Clark's.

Getty Workshops

These workshops on "Art History and..." explored contemporary cultural concerns and their effects on the practice of art history from a number of different points of view. The workshops were designed to bring together fellows from the Clark and Getty to address collectively the political, theoretical, and methodological topics that connect art history to a variety of issues in the humanities and social sciences. Taking place both in Williamstown in autumn and the Getty in Los Angeles in the spring, these workshops were devoted to intensive discussion of topical readings and presentations, as well as to critical responses to new papers by the participants on the year's chosen issue.

INHA Workshops

Since 2007, INHA, the Institut National d'Histoire de l'Art in Paris has worked collaboratively with the Research and Academic Program to sponsor week-long workshops held at the Foundation Hartung-Bergmann in Antibes, France, or at the Clark in Williamstown. The idea of each workshop is to bring scholars at all stages of their careers and from around the world to work intensively on a topic of broad methodological interest to the field of art history. The workshop extends the successful format of Clark colloquia that bring together groups of scholars for extended conversation out of the public glare. The first event was sponsored by the Florence Gould Foundation.
