Art & Law Program 2020 Spring Dates/Topic Announced

UPDATE: March 16, 2020

Given the evolving and uncertain COVID-19 situation both locally and nationally, the Spring 2020 Art & Law Program term has been postponed until further notice. We are working on rescheduling the Spring dates. Please check The Art & Law Program website for any updates. If you have any questions , please feel free to call or email Sergio Munoz Sarmiento at

The Spring 2020 three-day intensive/colloquium will take place on the weekend of April 17, 18 and 19, each day from 10am to 6pm. The three-day intensive will be held at the Cornell Art Architecture Planning headquarters at 26 Broadway in New York City.

In the Spring 2020, the Program will examine the effects of law on visual art, with a particular emphasis on the previous 20-years. We will question whether art is hindered or aided by the direct or indirect impact of law, legal discourse, and legal practice on art. In effect, we will discuss whether, and to what extent, artists should engage with the law.

The rolling-admissions application deadline is March 27, 2020. All application and Program information is available here:
