Cocktail Reception to Follow
New Orleans Museum of Art
Our panel of speakers will explore the treaties and laws governing the circulation of objects, the history of collecting antiquities, how forgeries are made and detected, how authentic works are documented, stored, dispersed, and displayed, the politics of sending antiquities back to their countries of origin, and the outlook for an expanded legal market. Attorneys and their clients—particularly those in the art market or museum community—now must take extra steps to ensure that they are behaving both legally and ethically.
