From 6 to 8 March 2005, CODART will hold its annual congress for curators of Dutch and Flemish art, this time in Haarlem. It is at the annual
congresses that CODART best fulfills its purpose, bringing together the largest number of colleagues from around the world in a variety of activities.
As with in previous years, this congress will be composed of a number of fixed items. The focus of this year’s CODART is Dutch and Flemish art in Swedish
collections; the plenary program will provide the opportunity to learn more on this subject. Various aspects of the permanent collection will be discussed
in a workshop setting, following a lecture on the subject by the congress guest speaker, Anna Somers Cocks. Future projects and descriptions of
little-known collections will be presented at the members meeting. Following the meetings, excursions will be held in Haarlem, or to Alkmaar and Hoorn.
For more information visit the congress website. The congress is open only to members of CODART.
