This year, the French Committee for the History of Art (CFHA) was chosen to organize it. The International Congress of Art History will be held at the Convention Center of the Cité Internationale de Lyon from June 23 to 28, 2024. 

"It is clear that Artprice's sponsorship of this global event, which will be pivotal for France and its international cultural policy, is significant. With over 50 countries and 1000 speakers participating, particularly in this Olympic Games year of 2024, the event holds immense importance. This exceptional event focusing on the History of Art, held once every four years, underscores France's resurgence, as it reclaims, according to Artprice, its position as the leading European hub in the Art Market."
thierry Ehrmann, President of and Founder of Artprice

The theme chosen for the 36th edition is "Matter Materiality". This theme concerns all artistic productions from all periods of art history. Their materiality poses problems of perception, conservation, or reproduction. This theme allows us to question the effects of dematerialization due to digital technology, but also the material dimension of digital technology such as the techniques of rematerialization or perception of materiality. It explores very current questions, in full evolution, and in line with major societal, ecological, and ethical challenges.

The congress will address many techniques and categories of material objects, from painting to print, from architectural techniques to the use of waste, from the human body to clothing, and more, as detailed in the online program ( in progress). Nearly 1,000 participants from more than 50 countries will speak during the congress. There will be a program of plenary conferences with the greatest specialists and world-renowned artists where they will talk about their approach to the subject. Artprice and the Organe Museum of Contemporary Art will participate in workshops in the form of collaborative knowledge-sharing sessions. The CIHA Lyon 2024 Congress is open to anyone interested in art, Art History and cultural heritage. To register for the congress and benefit from the preferential rate before March 31.
