Via Wikipedia and Creative Commons License.[/caption] Does an artist have the legal right to protect her work from the encroachment of another artist's artwork? That’s the question facing Arturo Di Modica, creator of Wall Street’s iconic bronze Charging Bull, which last month was joined by another, more diminutive bronze called Fearless Girl. Di Modica argues the addition—which stares down his bull—changes the message of his work and violates his copyright and moral rights. On this Artsy Podcast episode, two art lawyers—Yayoi Shionoiri, Senior Counsel at Artsy, and Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento, art lawyer, professor, ...
[caption id="attachment_9411" align="alignleft" width="264"] Image courtesy of Sebastian Alvarez. Via Wikipedia and Creative Commons License.[/caption] There's been so much coverage of the Charging Bull-Fearless Girl controversy that it's hard to keep track. So, what we'll do here, in pure shameless self-promotion, is highlight two articles that quote our very own Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento. Both articles (Artsy and the Christian Science Monitor) question whether an artist can "control the meaning" of her/his artwork. Although this is how recent media attention is spinning this dispute, we're not so sure it's about "control" so much as it's about whether or not there are legitimate legal ...
[caption id="attachment_9407" align="alignnone" width="201"] From the complaint.[/caption] Yes, you read right. Usually appropriation artists are the ones getting sued first. But the law allows the soon-to-be-defendant the option to strike first. That's what the Andy Warhol Foundation has done. They've filed suit in the Southern District of New York against photographer Lynn Goldsmith arguing that Warhol's use in 1984 of Goldsmith's photograph is fair use and that Goldsmith knew about Warhol's use since 1984, making her claim time-barred. Here's the complaint via Eriq Garner of the Hollywood Reporter. It's an interesting read. Aside from the statue of limitations argument, the Warhol Foundation ...
During the opening at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Little Tokyo of “Carl Andre: Sculpture as Place, 1958-2010,” some protesters distributed postcards with an image of Mendieta and the text: “Carl Andre is at MOCA Geffen. ¿Dónde está Ana Mendieta?” (Where is Ana Mendieta?).

[caption id="attachment_9394" align="alignnone" width="300"] Running Fence, Sonoma and Marin Counties, California, 1972-76.[/caption] Colby Chamberlain on artist Luis Camnitzer's offer to President Trump to build that wall, albeit a different type of wall. Luis Camnitzer: “Dear President Donald Trump: Please use this golden opportunity to commission US artist Christo with the creation of a new version of his Running Fence to separate the US from Mexico. His first project in Sonoma was completed in 1976 with great success. Though only 24.5 miles long then, in full-length today it would transform a racist project into a public art event, and help improve the image ...
“Solving [the mystery of capital] requires an understanding of why Westerners, by representing assets with titles, are able to see and draw out capital from them. One of the greatest challenges to the human mind is to comprehend and to gain access to those things we know exist but cannot see. Not everything that is real and useful is tangible and visible.”

In a sense, and like the judiciary, a deconstructive approach has the power to give body to a shadow, and thus raises the question of whether the two can be told apart.
