Conference // Lisbon 2020 // CfP deadline postponed to June 30, 2020
April 27, 2020
Due to the pandemic situation, the ICDAD board decided to postpone the deadline of the annual call for conference papers to June 30, 2020.
As this is a rapidly-evolving situation, it is not possible to provide advice about travel in the near future. Also, we do not know what the financial situation in the museums will be after shorter or longer periods of closedown. For the moment we have decided to go on planning the conference in Lisbon on October 14-16, 2020. Therefore, we encourage you to participate in the round of call for papers and would like to inform you that alternatives are considered currently for the conference timing and format. You will be informed by the end of May about all possible changes in the plans.

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.
