The Art in Law in Art Conference will be held in the beautiful Perth Cultural Precinct at the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth. Art in Law in Art is an interdisciplinary conference investigating the broad themes of how law sees visual art, and how visual art sees law.
The Conference will be an exciting mix of different perspectives from international experts on the art-law nexus, as scholars, practitioners and artists come together and exchange ideas.
The Conference has two main themes: 1. Art in Law: law touches upon a range of legal topics and areas, and this theme explores the full breadth and depth of issues. 2. Law in Art: this theme explores how law is perceived and represented by artists and theorists. This theme explores the broad question of how the law is perceived in the theory and practice of visual art.
Confirmed speaker: Carey Young, visual artist. Please visit the conference website at for updated information about the conference, and to register your interest.
We would very much appreciate your help in bringing this conference to the attention of your colleagues, and anyone who might be interested in attending, whether as a paper presenter or otherwise.
