Symposium: On the Intersection of Art and Law in the Work of Félix González-Torres


In the last few years, there has been a growing scholarly interest in González-Torres’ art works and the ways in which they are informed by law and juridical structures. Through the intersection of conceptual art strategies and legal instruments, González-Torres’ art works complicate and expand our understanding of what constitutes the art object, the ownership, exhibition and dissemination of art, and the public’s relationship to art and art institutions.

This symposium brings together scholars with backgrounds in law, art history and cultural history, as well as collectors and contemporary artists, in order to analyze the work of Félix González-Torres and its impact on the emerging field of art and law. This symposium is organized by Cornell Law School and the Art & Law Program and sponsored by the de la Cruz Collection.
