Spring 2021 Topic

In the Spring 2021, the Program will primarily examine two concerns: (1) the effects of law on visual art, with a particular emphasis on the previous 20-years, and (2) the artist as corporation and the corporation as artist. We will question whether art is hindered or aided by the direct and 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, or, whether artists are better served by studying outlaw practices.

The colloquium will be led by Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento.
