New Art:
New Legal

17–18 May 2012
National Museum of XXI Century Arts,
Conference Hall, Rome, Italy

A conference presented by the IBA Art,
Cultural institutions and Heritage Law Committee
in cooperation
with MAXXI (National Museum of XXI Century Arts)

-New art trends have emerged on the art scene in the few last decades. We may remember digital art and holograms, Art 2.0, bio art, performances and enactments, language and law based art, appropriationism and sampling, sound and ambient art, street art, and so many others. These art movements raise specific questions and can be considered as new legal challenges for art lawyers and artists, since they are creating new and unexplored legal issues. The Art, Cultural Institutions and Heritage Law Committee of the International Bar Association and MAXXI will analyse these artistic trends through a panel of top international experts from the lawyer, artist, art critic, and museum director’s points of view, exploring new scenarios and providing useful criteria and possible solutions to these new problems.

Part I
The new boundaries of the notion of ‘artwork’: this part will focus on what is now considered art in the art world and what can be deemed art according to legal standards and leading case-law. In particular, whether law should fix narrow or broad limits on what can be protectable; for instance, can a fluorescent living rabbit be a work of art?
