Should institutions always be faithful to the intentions of artists when displaying their artworks? What rights should artists have to authorise the exhibition of their artworks after they have been sold?

Speakers include: Daniel McClean, Lawyer, Withers LLP, editor of 'The Trials of Art' (2007, Ridinghouse) Kate Bush, Head of Art Galleries, Barbican Prof. Elke Bippus, University of the Arts, Zurich/Switzerland To book please click on the link below.
