ABCs of Art Law

art law basics, cultural heritage, banking, copyright, fair use

Join the Dartmouth Lawyers Association and the Center for Art Law for a discussion on the ABCs of Art Law.

Art, its market, and its protection have been increasingly regulated, leading to a new generation of “art lawyers” who specialize in cultural heritage, art business, and artists’ rights.

A group of attorneys discusses recent legal developments in art and cultural heritage protection, moderated by Irina Tarsis, Founder and Managing Director of the Center for Art Law.

A: Artifacts & Cultural Heritage | 1:05 – 1:30 PM

Amelia L. B. Sargent will provide an overview of legal frameworks for dealing with issues in cultural heritage law, including issues of preservation and restitution, and discussing current controversies.

B: Banking Rules as they relate to Art Market | 1:30 – 1:55 PM

Daphne Chen Matthews (Dartmouth College Class of ’97) will discuss banking practices as they apply to the art trade, as well as recent EU regulations to prevent money laundering and related U.S. efforts.

C: Copyright and Fair Use in Art | 1:55 – 2:20 PM

Matthew H. Giger (Dartmouth College Class of ’96) will outline the basics of copyright law as they apply to the visual arts, with a special focus on fair use and cases involving appropriation art.

Since 1983, the Dartmouth Lawyers Association (a non-profit, non-partisan organization) has provided a unique forum to develop and maintain contacts with the diverse group of individuals who share the dual bond of Dartmouth and the law. Today, the DLA is the largest Dartmouth alumni shared interest group. The DLA fosters meaningful dialogue on important legal, social and economic issues affecting the global community, and sponsors educational programs that feature prominent business, government and legal commentators, as well as distinguished professors. The DLA also publishes an annual Directory of Members, which is a fertile source of business referrals.
