Legal Issues in Conservation Interim Meeting on “The Rights of Living Artists with respect to Conservation of Their Work”, June 3, 2016

Friday 03 June - Friday 03 June 2016
(Categories: ICOM-CC, Legal Issues in Conservation)

The Legal Issues in Conservation Working Group will hold its 2014- 2017 Interim Meeting on Friday, June 3, 2016 at the NYU-IFA Conservation Center in New York City. The goal of this meeting is to look at the rights of living artists when it comes to the restoration of their work: What rights do they have after they have sold their work and how should conservators deal with those rights? These questions deal not only with moral and legal rights, but also with issues of artist sanction and what say artists have in the restoration, remaking, or reinstallation of their works.

The meeting will include short talks and a Socratic dialogue modelled after the dialogue held at the 2014 ICOM-CC triennial meeting in Melbourne.

 You are invited to contribute a short talk on this issues including case studies and problems you have faced or are facing in practice and/or research you are doing in this area.

Please send a title and short abstract to the Working Group Coordinator, Rebecca Rushfield, by February 12, 2016

There are no plans to publish the contributions, nor will there be a traditional review process. Based on the number of contributions and the topics covered, the Organizing Committee may group related talks to facilitate discussion and will determine how long the individual presentations can be. Presenters will be informed of this by March 11, 2016. Further details of the meeting will be available at the end of February.
