Milan, Great Hall University Milano – Bicocca
Managing, protecting and safeguarding the cultural and patrimonial legacy of an artist, especially if established or potentially attractive to the market, involves economic interests of great importance. The aim of this conference is to highlight, by means of a comparison between different regulations, the divide concerning inheritance and the safeguard of artist’s rights in the many disciplines involved. The presentations will reflect on the complex issues arising when authenticating a work of art, or determining its provenance, with an emphasis on the right to authenticate and the new market rules in this field – considering the very important role of certificates of authenticity issued by artist’s archives; the system of indirect authentication through the publication of an artwork in the artist’s “catalogue raisonné”; and the role of museums in the management of archives, including issuing expertise.
