Duke Art, Law & Markets Initiative (DALMI)
Growing out of an ongoing international conversation about art markets, the conveners will be designing a team project that studies the driving factors for the premium paid for the more significant works of art by period, geographical area, and clusters of buyers. The results of this research will be assessed and published each semester in an e-journal. In addition, they will be organizing workshops that involve Duke undergraduate and graduate students with members of the international network exploring these issues. Students will also be involved in the research and development of a web-based Fantasy Collecting Network.
Partner institutions for this project include Universite Charles de Gaulle, Lille-3 in Lille, France, and Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany.
The project will be co-directed by:
- Neil De Marchi, Professor of Economics
- Hans J. Van Miegroet, Professor in Early Modern Art & Markets; Chair, Art, Art History & Visual Studies; and Director of the Visual Studies Initiative
