I’m very happy to announce that on March 12, 2016, I presented a paper on aesthetics and law for the Questioning Aesthetics Symposium at the Rhode Island School of Design. My presentation focused on artists that use law as medium and the importance of studying how the law has impacted and is impacting how we think about contemporary art practices. I do hope to expand on this—in writing—in the very near future.
I was joined by Stefano Bloch and Brian Soucek. Both presented pertinent and timely papers on the aesthetic and legal conundrums relating to street art and judicial definitions of art, respectively. This panel, and the overall conference, gave me much to think about and the feed back was invaluable. I also thank Julia Bryan-Wilson, T’ai Smith and Anne Eaton for their generous comments and conversations regarding this important subject matter.
