Legal Issues in Conservation Working Group to hold interim meeting in NYC on June 3, 2016
On June 3, 2015, the Legal Issues in Conservation Working Group will hold its 2014- 2017 interim meeting at the NYU- IFA Conservation Center in New York City. The topic of the meeting is "The Rights of Living Artists with respect to Conservation of Their Work" The goal of this meeting is to look at the rights of living artists when it comes to the restoration of their work: What rights do they have after they have sold their work and how should conservvators deal with those rights?
The meeting will include short talks and a Socratic dialogue modelled after the dialogue held at the 2014 ICOM-CC triennial meeting in Melbourne.
Contributions (including case studies) are welcome Please send a title and short abstract to the Working Group Coordinator, Rebecca Rushfield at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 12, 2016.
Based on the number of contributions and the topics covered, the Organizing Committee may group related talks to facilitate discussion and will determine how long the individual presentations can be. Presenters will be informed of this by March 11, 2016. Further details will be available at the end of February.
