Clark Colloquia

The Clark sponsors invitational colloquia—small, semi-private gatherings of researchers who wish to discuss topics of mutual interest, perhaps in preparation for a book. Colloquia focus on an array of themes spanning the history and historiography of art.

Submitting a Proposal
To submit a proposal please send the following: a description and a roster of potential participants (including a few participants that have already agreed to the proposal). Proposals are considered on an ongoing basis, but depending on the type of event, it may take up to two years to implement.

You may contact David Breslin if you have questions about submitting your application.
