Here is a preview of some of the faculty talks you will experience:

Escape Attempts: Curating Emerging Artists in a Commercial Gallery
Dive into the curating process—from research to production and installation—by going behind the scenes with Kathy Battista, who curated a buzz-worthy show, Escape Attempts, for the launch of a major commercial gallery in LA this fall.

Decorative Art & Design: 21st Century Trends
As the international art auction market is developing in a novel direction with a breakdown of traditional sales categories, so are curated exhibitions in art fairs, museums, historic houses and galleries. Ann-Marie Richard introduces the eclectic movement that mirrors 21st century trends and outlines why understanding historical artifacts is prescient to the contemporary art world.

Is Graffiti Protected? 5Pointz and the Rights of Street Artists
On November 7, following a three-week landmark trial on a complex and rarely litigated federal law, a jury in Brooklyn decided that a real estate developer illegally destroyed artwork at his complex in Queens. Judith Prowda, an expert in art law, dissects the highly significant case and its impact on street art.
