Building the Gauguin Catalogue Raisonné: A digital publication
ICRA is pleased to announce it will host an online webinar entitled, Building the Gauguin Catalogue Raisonné: A Digital Publication on Tuesday 25 May 2021 together with the Wildenstein Plattner Institute, Inc. and Navigating Art. The webinar will comprise two sessions, each lasting approximately one hour including time for questions, with a short interval between them. The webinar will start at at 12 noon EST (New York) / 5pm GMT (London).
The first session will centre on the issues and obstacles that have arisen during the researching, writing and publishing online of the new volume of the Gauguin catalogue raisonné. Jennifer Gimblett, Project Manager and Senior Researcher for the catalogue raisonné’s digital volume, Caitlin Sweeney, Director of Digital Publications, and Elizabeth Gorayeb, Executive Director of the Wildenstein Plattner Institute, Inc., will discuss the project while showcasing the new digital publication. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A, featuring Sylvie Crussard, Gauguin scholar and consultant to the WPI.
The technical innovations of the digital Gauguin catalogue raisonné will be addressed by Nicolai Bohn and Martin Lorenz of Navigating Art, the developers of this software. Navigating Art is a ‘Software-as-a-Service’ provider that offers a new experience for digitizing, publishing, and exploring art. Together, they will introduce their software and tour customisable web features they designed and built for its users.
The event will be a Zoom webinar. Tickets cost £35 per person and can be bought from the link below. ICRA members, students and those who are currently unemployed are eligible for a free ticket and should email Lucie.Skilton@icra.art to reserve their place. The day before the event, all attendees will be emailed a link for the webinar.

This event is made possible through the ICRA, a not-for-profit members’ association that brings together those involved in the creation, writing, editing, designing and production of catalogues raisonnés.
The ICRA facilitates collaboration between projects, the exchange of information about the technical and practical aspects of making a catalogue raisonné, the mentoring of the next generation of scholars, and the support of artists, their estates, collectors and the market on the challenges and responsibilities of creating catalogues raisonnés.
