ICDAD Individual Sessions, 2–3 September, and Joint Sessions with ICFA and GLASS, 4 September
ICDAD’s 2019 annual meeting was entitled “The Future of Tradition in the Arts, East and West,” focusing on Asian art-related themes. Three days of lively sessions took place to a packed audience. Speakers from 20 countries or territories presented on such topics as cross-cultural influences; Japonisme and Chinoiserie; Asian or Asian-influenced ceramics, lacquers, textiles, and furniture; and the presentation of Asian art in Western museums. A major art world discovery was premiered at ICDAD by Tetsuro Degawa, director of the Museum of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka. The Japanese public broadcaster NHK came to ICDAD to film his first ever public presentation of the discovery of a Song-dynasty black glazed teabowl with iridescent markings (yohen tenmoku)—only the fourth of its kind in the world. At the General Assembly, Secretary Maria José Tavares announced the 2020 annual meeting in Lisbon, Portugal and upcoming board elections.
