About the event

What ethical issues arise when a public square becomes a public library, when a private life becomes a plotline, or an old song is sampled to create a new one? How are the potential legal implications of art-making considered and strategized for by artists and arts organizations? Join us as we explore the intersection of art and law on issues of civil rights, intellectual property, public space, and more. Panelists with diverse backgrounds in modern law and contemporary art will share their disparate perspectives in this conversation, which is part of our year-long Andrew W. Mellon Seminar on Images and Information.
