Past conference talks and lectures

  • 3 November 2017: “The Art Market Strategy: Expert Advice on How to Enhance Value in a Collection” - ART$UMMIT Ireland, The Merrion Hotel Dublin.

Anne Laure will focus her opinions on the importance of authenticity in the secondary art market. She will offer an international perspective looking at Old Masters and the high prices they have maintained at international auctions whilst reflecting upon the challenges faced by the collector in terms of authenticity in such works of art. She will discuss her findings in her recent book “The Sale of Misattributed Artworks and Antiques at Auction”, in terms of advising the audience on the importance of due diligence when purchasing a work of art. This will be done through very interesting international case law that she will convey to the audience in an anecdotal manner. Her contribution will conclude with the importance of transparency with a healthy art market ecosystem.  http://artsummitireland.com/

  • 10 July 2017: "Appropriation Art: The Fine Line between a Copy and an Original Work" - "Images and Texts reproduced",  XIth International IAWIS/AIERTI Conference at the University of Lausanne.

Appropriation art has been subject to several lawsuits artists initiated for copyright infringement. A legal analysis of appropriation art shows the uneasiness of copyright law to come to grips with this artistic phenomenon. Because the appropriation artist copies without the permission of the copyright holder, copyright law tends to consider it as in breach of an artist’s rights. In the United States, the doctrine of fair use has brought some relief to appropriation artists, as it recognized the legitimacy of this artistic practice under certain conditions. This paper assesses how the art of appropriation challenges the law and the ways courts have found to authorise such art. It argues that apart from the US principle of fair use, no solution is available under copyright law which recognizes appropriation art as legitimate. http://wp.unil.ch/reproduction2017/
