Joan Kee, Associate Professor in the History of Art at the University of Michigan, former lawyer in Hong Kong and New York, and author of numerous articles on contemporary art and law on topics such as artistic uses of police evidence, stalking and harassment, property laws and contemporary Chinese art, and artists’ rights. Her book, published by University of California Press, examines the relationship between contemporary art and the law through the lens of integrity, and how in the 1960s, artists began to engage conspicuously with legal ideas, rituals, and documents.

Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento is an arts lawyer and founding director of The Art & Law Program. He is interested in the relationship between art and the law, with a specific focus on tangible and intangible property, freedom of expression, and outlaw culture. He has lectured, taught and written on art law matters in a wide range of institutions and publications. Sarmiento represents and advises visual artists and art’s institutions in matters and disputes related to intellectual property, contracts, artist legacies, and tax-exempt entities.
